This is a wonderfully remarkable artifact. The high quality paper, the layout, the fonts, the illustrated items, the leather cover are all exquisite. It is interesting to experience the tale from what one would academically call the ur-text from which the 2oth century editor J. Tolkien filled out in his version of the narratives. The various writers (BIlbo, Frodo, Sam, etc.) are distinguished by their orthographic styles and even alphabets used! One has a glimpse into true hobbitry. And a sense of truly holding an ancient original. I will have to buy white gloves to handle it! ;-) It will be fascinating to read through and explore. It arrived within a mere 3-4 days all the way from NZ to NYC. in excellent condition. I was a bit surprized however to see that it was not boxed as I would expect for something of such quality and expense. So I purchased a shadow box to store it in. Perhaps you might share some details about how it was developed and produced? One improvement might be to slightly feather the edges of the pages as used to be common in older books. The edges look a bit too machined otherwise. I may experiment with attempting to achieve that. I have a rather large collection of film and book oriented Tolkieniana, and this now occupies the place of supreme value! It exceeds every expectation. Yess, it is my presshuss!..

I just received this today as a Christmas gift from my father. As a fan of the movies and the books this was truly incredible. The amount of detail contained within the book itself was amazing. I was (and still am) speechless regarding it. Everything in the book is incredibly well done, and I was awed by the seemingly minuscule details that were included...

I just got mine so I haven't read it yet, but after taking a careful look at it, I must say it has exceed my expectations (which were already very high as I knew exactly what I was buying and how full it was of drawings, poems, maps and family trees). It is bigger, thicker and more awesome than expected. The quality of its materials and its handwriting is astonishing. It took only two months from order to delivery, which is perfectly fine (even fast I would say!) taking into account all the hard work behind this marvellous master piece. As a true fan of both the books and the movies, I think I'm not wrong to consider this the nerdiest and coolest luxury tolkien-related collectible ever, above any sword, sculpture or special edition of the books or the movies. To sum up, this is something I was hoping to get for a long long time (if I didn't buy it before because I didn't know it was available for sale!) and I'm glad it is PERFECT...

The quality of the Red Book exceeded my expectations. The leather embossing and tooling are exquisite and the aged quality comes through in the treatment of the pages. Probably most surprising to me is the text itself, sometimes quoting from Tolkien, sometimes not. I found the text to be very emotive, and the side notes to be humorous and moving. Very pleased with the attention to detail. Highly recommend!..

Upon receiving the package with the book you feel as if the postmaster of the Shire just send you the Red Book of Westmarch right from Undertowers. Everything from the handmade leather binding to the aged paper and of course the authentic handwritings of Bilbo, Frodo and Sam just feel as if crafted in Middleearth. You just feel as if the story you know and love was told to you from the perspective of the hobbits (e.g. Bilbos creative version of the finding of the ring). Adding to the immersion are dozens of beautiful handdrawn maps, pictures and family trees. In conclusion this piece of art is the pinnacle of every Lord of the rings collection and i would recommend it to everybody who wants to realy immerse himself in this great story. Just one quick note on the shop itself: Very quick and uncomplicated delivery from New Zealand to Germany and great customer service!..
