The packaging is very sturdy and nice. I've never seen a box designed this way, where the sleeves are attached to it and not loose. It's very handy.
The actual art-work on it is a little silly, and the font on the side of the box looks like what you'd expect to find on a children's book. It was clearly designed by someone with a talent more for practical matters, and a lack of taste.
The recordings are all great, of course. The price is a little steep, and it may have been more economical just to buy each volume individually, but I don't regret the purchase.
