The artistic frames on the front of the books are accented with brown or green, but no art whatsoever in them.
The 1992 slipcase with a nice Alan Lee drawing has a Tolkien Centenary Logo on it, 'Tolkien the Centenary 1982-1992'.
These paperbacks have been read and used, show signs of wear and use. Slipcase also is in used condition. Looks like a set that has been read several times. However the many flaws it is still a sturdy good looking collectable set, looking for a new home!
