A Song of Ice and Fire bookset
I just received this set from an auction. It was new and factory sealed at a substantially discounted price. The only thing that may have kept it off a big store bookshelf, if even worth mentioning, was that one book was placed upside-down.
The book case is the same material that was used for the book covers, which is a textured man-made material.
Although the description says leather-cloth, It feels a bit like a textured rubber over a flexible, pressed-paper binding. The books measure roughly 6 1/8th x 4 1/2" or 15.5 x 12 cm. The outside cover and spine are embossed with the title surrounded by a scrolled border and the G.R.R.M author icon shown in the images, The inside cover says it is a 2015 Special Boxed Bantam Edition. Inside the pages feel pretty thin, but the print is clear and dark. Artwork is included of two maps of the North and South realms before the first chapter and close up maps of each realm scattered throughout the books. Each chapter has a nice scroll design on the top of the pages. Apart from the title headings, the rest of the print is pretty small coming in at around 3/32" or about 2mm which is to be expected for content this large in books this size; I'll be using my glasses. At the back of the books are an appendix, an acknowledgements page and a page about the author. It's a nice set to have on a shelf for a reasonable price that won't take up too much room.Read full review
