    It arrived in our shop today.


    No, really. Wow.

    I’ll leave more lucid reviews to others.

    I had it on pre-order at when they were offering it for $75. I decided I couldn’t afford it right now and canceled the order. Now they are selling it for $110.

    Wow – what a production! To heck with Santa… Note that JHU Press is currently offering the set at a 25% discount if ordered direct from them.
