    I will start with two unexpected surprises. Two really neat proofs.

    I also say nice, and I am still waiting patiently (mostly), for the lettered edition of SCREAMPLAYS, although I feel like giving up.

    Now we get an interesting one. I don't think there is an "official" name for these. These are PS publishing Colorado Kid, what I would call artist remarque ed. These were part of the unsigned books from PS. They may have been an over run. Someone bought them (maybe Ralph), and got in touch with the artists for each version of the book. They then had an artist ed of 26 for each book lettered A-Z ans signed by the artist. They are not signed by King. But they are limited since there are only 26 of each one. I have letter K. So here they are:

    So again, there were only 26 of these so that makes them rare. But the fact that they are not signed by King made them more affordable to me. BUT, the fact that they were signed and remarqued by each artist is pretty cool I think.
    And here is the case for them

    Now we come to one of the biggies, literally. Gwendy's Button Box S\L. People said the case was large but it was much more impressive to see it in person.

    First, I must give Steve Sargent of the UK the credit with this project. Steve’s a master at getting artist to do incredible drawings in books making them highly collectible.

    During a conversation with Steve on another project, he brought up a cool idea to see if we could get all three artists to do a remarque project in Colorado Kid editions and house them together in a slipcase. If I remember correct, I was instrumental in getting artist JK Potters contact info and talked Glenn Chadbourne into doing his copies. Steve took care of communicating with Ed Miller (Aka. Les Edwards). Not sure how the lettered part came about but one of the artists mentioned only wanting to do a few so I think Steve asked each artist to do 26 and would they letter each one A-Z as they completed each one.

    These sets sold out in a couple hours once the project was announced. Thomas at StephenKingCollector.com quickly got on board with the project and asked everyone to send him pictures of each copy so he could share photos with the less fortunate collectors who didn’t get a copy.

    This set became known as the Colorado Kid Artist Edition Lettered Set. Even though it’s an aftermarket project (with only 26 completed), it’s a wanted trio in many collections.

    Congratulations Michael for obtaining Letter K of a rare set.

    And Finally, I got what I think is a slightly better Stand than what I have now.



    I intend on using the DJ I already have since I have to find a better one, despite the tape.

    So that's it. Well, I still have that rare proof but I promised Ralph that I would hold off until I got the case, so you will have to wait for that one. Just to wet your appetite, Ralph told me there are less than 5 of these in out there.

    Excellent books! I think I heard about those COLORADO KIDS, but there are so many editions I forgot about them. They look great!
    GWENDY'S - a great read and a great limited edition.

    Looking forward to that.

    Also, how will you conquer the challenge of trying to find a place to fit Gwendy in?

    Yea, when I get the go ahead, I hope people will enjoy it. As for Gwendy's, it's really not an issue.

    This shelf that's part of a wall unit is pretty tall. TBH, It almost reaches the top if you can believe it. Once I get my case for the mystery proof, I will take another
    pic with the newer books to show what my case looks like now.
