Surely I can’t be alone in actually liking the change? I understand the idea of consistency, but personally as someone who owns only SE-books, I buy them because they stand out. No ”cluttered” (if beautiful) artwork on the cover; simply a heavy leather tome feel, glistening titles and a shiny-ish color.
In my opinion, the SE-tomes are beautiful, and the branching out from red made me happy. I’ll look forward to having red, blue, purple, green and who knows what other nuances decorating my shelves. Just my 2 cents, but while consistency is nice, it can also get boring.
