Deluxe Leathercloth Boxed Set

Recommended Posts

It says leathercloth... whatever that may be?

Definition of LEATHERCLOTH

: a cloth usually of cotton or plastic made to imitate leather by various coating, embossing, and finishing processes

Leathercloth / Vynide

Leathercloth / Vynide has a woven cotton back and is used to trim door panels and other parts of classic car trims. It is less stretchy than vinyl.

So it's an upgraded version of Vinyl that's woven to be tighter.

So........this is weird right? One mention on Twitter and nothing for nearly a month? Maybe he wasn't supposed to tweet the picture?

I predict the quality will be garbage like with those Harper Voyager or whatever editions.



GRRM sure never met a merchandising opportunity he didn't like!

Longtime stalker.

These are paperbacks and to be fair, relatively cheap published by Bantam. They're actually cheaper in the U.K which amused me but the price will fluctuate until release date which is 27th October 2015.

RRP is $75, currently $6x U.S and £28 U.K. U.K editions are exactly the same, Bantam, it's listed as an export edition.

Blurb;

The ultimate collector’s item for fans of the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones—a boxed set featuring gorgeous leather-cloth-bound editions of the first five novels!

An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now the monumental saga gets the royal treatment it deserves, with each book wrapped in bound leather-cloth covers and packaged together in an elegant display case. This one-of-a-kind boxed set includes:

A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS

  • Paperback: 5280 pages
  • Publisher: Bantam; Box Lea edition (27 Oct. 2015)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1101965487
  • ISBN-13: 978-1101965481

Harper Voyager have reprints for October also, but that's old news.

Enjoy (:
