The three books of the trilogy will be quarter-bound in leather, with cloth sides featuring new illustrations by Alan Lee, the English artist who did conception art for Peter Jackson’s movie adaptation, and who won an Academy Award for Best Art Direction for his work in 2004. It’s a little hard to see in this image, but the page sides are silver, and there’s a satin ribbon page-marker bound into each book.
