I'm going to do this review picture by selected picture, as it IS an art book, and the art is what really makes this stand out.
Standard cover and special boxed set.
Box cover of the Special Edition. It really is special and pops in person more than this photo shows.
Cover of the Special Edition book.
I love the classic ads.
I realize now that I never had the "orange spine" releases of the core AD&D 1e books. Otherwise, I'd have this complete collection.
I have some of these colored covers, but not many.
Lots of frameable posters in the Special Edition.
So, my final score? To (poorly) quote Nigel from Spinal Tap, "this goes to ELEVEN, and eleven is a larger number than ten."
Get it. Seriously.
