    Correct -- not signed. Also not numbered...so I have no idea what the limitation of this set is. The promotional copy states that the box is handmade, so I suspect it can't be a lot, but who knows...a few hundred, perhaps? Could be a lot more, though, I suppose, depending on one's definition of "handmade"...

    An update to this: My curiousity got the best of me and I emailed them to try and find out the limitation...for those interested, this is what I was told: "We printed 2,000 copies, but it is a one-time print run, so once these copies are gone, there won’t ever be any new ones made."

    So there you go: 2000 limitation. More than I would have anticipated, but probaby helps account for the modest price, since as we all know volume drives down costs.

    I'm interested because of the Matheson book.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Here is the post I made on another forum...it has the link and more pictures to help with the decision:

    GHOST BOX is a collection of single-story chapbooks of individualized cover design by authors both classic and contemporary:

    H. F. Arnold
    Dennis Etchison
    Adam Corbin Fusco
    W. F. Harvey
    Arthur Machen
    George R. R. Martin
    Richard Matheson
    Michael Reaves
    Al Sarrantonio
    Clark Ashton Smith
    Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

    I don't typically go for projects like this that border on the gimmicky, but based on pics I had seen and the list of authors selected I made an exception in this case and I'm extremely glad I did. The production values, the conceptual design and attention to detail, of this thing is off the chart for the price paid. The promotional material describe it thusly: "Each handmade box features a matte-black finish, an iridescent colour-shifting foil stamp on top, and a magnetized lid. The booklets have debossed design details and are bound with brass staples." It is neither signed nor numbered and I've no idea what the limitation is, but it is at its core a work of mass-market art by a duo of publishing-design artists (https://www.hingstonandolsen.com/publisher/ ).

    The box is about the size of a standard paperback:



    Once open, there is a complementary design of the cover blocks underneath the lid, and a short note from Patton Oswalt, editor and comedian (and horror fiction fan), atop the chapbooks:



    Small details like a cutout to lift up the chapbooks out of the box attest to the thoughtful quality imbued in this item:



    Inside are eleven chapbooks, each and every one in my mind a winner...very much looking forward to reading both those I've read before and those I've not. In addition, a poem penned by Lovecraft is pasted on the bottom of the box, thus offering a total of twelve different works. From a collector and Matheson fan standpoint, I'm particularly thrilled to actually have a chapbook of Matheson's titular story from his debut collection:



    The publisher's exemplary production qualities continue in the page design, generous margin spacing, and style and size of font selected, offering a comfortable reading experience:



    All of this for just over $30, once the Canadian-to-US-dollar conversion is factored in. It's a deal at twice the price. If you want your own GHOST BOX, the page for it is here:

    An author I follow on Twitter (not one of the contributing authors) mentioned it and posted a pic with his tweet. Had I not seen that, I wouldn't have been aware of it, either.

    I would pay 300-400 for fine / fine signed Jon Snow cover. Have yet to get one in condition that satisfies me. it's always the dust jacket or spine...

    Thanks guys. I thought they might be a lot more than the solid silver one, but it looks like it should be less.
