3.0 out of 5 stars From a U.S. buyer.., 8 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Harry Potter Boxed Set (Special Edition) (Contains all 7 books in the series) (Hardcover)
This is actually the first time I've been moved to write a review. I would have to say the quality of this set is questionable! The first things I notice: (1) The gilt on the page edges is just terrible, it's more like someone spray painted the edges unevenly! (2) The image on the cover is simply glued on and the cloth cover looks like it might come unglued at the corners. (3) The pages are not bright white/heavy (they are environmentally friendly, but you'd expect more in a "special edition"). That being said, it is a specially released edition and is the UK edition, making it interesting to American buyers. I've always loved the illustrations in the U.S. editions, but the U.K. editions are the TRUE product. I also own copies of the standard U.K. "children's" hardcover editions, and I personally believe they're of higher overall quality than this set!
