"The Story of Kullervo" Deluxe Edition



At long last, Harper Collins will be publishing a deluxe edition (slipcased, of course) of The Story of Kullervo!

Usually, a deluxe edition of a Tolkien book published by Harper Collins is published on the exact same day as the hardback (and ebook) editions. Because Harper Collins hasn’t officially released the description of the deluxe edition contents, or a cover image, I’ll only provide the ISBN (a direct ‘link’ to that edition) and publication date:

The ISBN is :
9780008166724
Publication date: Oct 20, 2016

It should cost you about the same price as other deluxe editions, so bear that in mind. I have a feeling that Tolkien’s image, ‘The Land of Pohja’, will be featured as a facsimile frontispiece illustration fold out sheet. Perhaps the emblem will be also on the slip-case and the book itself, as well.

Either way, this is sure to be great news for collectors of the Harper Collins deluxe Tolkien books. [I’ll do another post about this once it’s been ‘officially annoucned’. It could be in 2016 sometime though]
