A surprise arrived in the mail for me today. Paradise Now, which was released in paperback by the Society of Biblical Literature last fall, just came in a package to me from Brill, now published in hardback.
So if you want to spend triple the money, but have a hardback copy, here's the link for the Brill purchase.
All kidding aside, the hardback presentation is meant for institutional libraries. I must say though that Brill does do an outstanding job with their binding, paper, and overall presentation. I have always loved to see my books put out in Brill cloth, especially when they used to use gold embossed lettering. This new book is done in ochre linen with burgundy embossing, so it is lovely too.
