    Default Illustrations

    Ok, I'm confused. Grant has previously published a trade edition of all the Dark Tower novels. Are they not doing one for "The Wind Through The Keyhole?" And if that is the case, are the two Grant special editions the only ones that will contain the illustrations. With every one of my dark tower novels being a first trade Grant edition, I'd kind of like to have this one the same way. I don't want to end up buying a Scribner first edition with it's thing, crap paper, no illustrations, probably lame end pages, and possibly even a different cover than the Grant edition. Is buying the artist or deluxe edition the only way to get one that will sit un-intimidated by its fellows on my Dark Tower shelf?

    Both editions will have artwork. Different cover art (I like the Scribner edition cover art much better) the Grant edition may have different artwork. Not sure.

    Opened up a box for Christmas today, and inside was a printed picture of the artist edition. My brother pre-ordered it for me.

    The Grant book is the only book that will have interior art (by Jae Lee). The Scribner version will NOT have interior art, just the cover.

    I really don't like the illustrations in the book.
    The UK edition is suppose to have the B&W drawings in them.
