    I had forgotten about the case, but I remember signing the book that went into it.
    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    I remember seeing that one in his office set up a couple years ago, around the time Discorida came out.

    Glad you like the cases everyone!

    These are a few that weren't sold to anyone here. They might be in my collection thread but other than that probably haven't shown up.

    I like the contrast between the dark walnut wood and the silver titling...


    the interior is lined with silver cloth..


    I'm sure there are Harry Potter fans here. I think this was for a British 'Collector's Set' ?



    This is very similar to the "Omar Kayyam" case except it has a label for the title instead of engraving (note the drops of blood coming from the label).

    The Blood Lines case is really nice! I love the color of the wood, the font is simple but effective and I really like the sparse and functional overall design.

    All very nice cases Dick!

    The story behind that case: Back in the DT.net days there was a project when DTVII was released, we basically sent a book 57,000 miles around the world to any member who wished to take part. Each member reserved a space in the book to write a personal message to Steve King. The case was made by a guy in Canada, I did the original drawing of the Constant Reader in the book and made the sculpture personalised 'For Stephen King' we also had Bev Vincent, Michael Whelan and Rick Berry sign it and write messages and Michael did an eye doodle. It was all packaged up and a really heartfelt letter printed on parchment explaining to King what it was all about was included. Then it was sent to King via Marsha. It was a way for fans to express their thanks to Steve for finishing the DT series and all his works over the years for us the Constant Reader to enjoy. There were a few dramas along the way, one guy, 15 years old, Kevin I think didn't send the book on for weeks and disappeared so we thought it was stolen and gone for good. We hunted him down and found where he lived and threatened to send the police to his house to retrieve the book (the police had agreed to this if I remeber correct), anyway he eventually did the right thing and sent the book to the next person.

    When Steve received the package he sent quite a few photos back of him opening the package and reading the letter etc as well as the book, case and sculpture sitting on his shelves in his Florida home and him chilling out in the sun out in the street by his car. He also sent a copy of the then just released Lisey's Story inscribed and signed. Really very nice of him and an amazing result.

    The orignal start of this was a book DTVII was gifted to Mandy 'Rebel Girl' by another member as she couldn't afford to buy a copy of the book to read. This lead to her wanting to pass it on to others who couldn't buy a copy to read and so was born the pass it on idea and from this it escalated into 'The Dark Tower.net Book Signing Tour'. The copy of Lisey's Story remains with me as do the photos and negatives as well as a typed letter from King's office. Mandy 'Rebel Girl' was given another signed copy of DTVII to keep and was the first and probably only King signature she ever owned. The DT.net website closed down not long after this project as everything fell apart and Mandy disappeared from the site and became untraceable. I have tried contacting her since to see how she is doing but have not had a reply.

    All in all it turned out to be an amazing achievement and I am sure Steve really appreciated what we had done and the sentiment of it all!

    I still have all the photos etc if anyone would like to see them but I don't want to hijack Dick's thread with this.

    Cheers guys.

    Obviously, for an Insomnia S/L without the slipcase.

    Just goes to show that "Dolso" is a very nice alternative for a damaged slip/tray case!!! If you can describe it, he can build it!!!

    It is a wonderful case. I did suggest that he "distress" it a little more (AT LEAST THE COVER) and maybe stain it a little darker in order to make the contrasts a little more subtle.

    Thoughts?

    Bad Penny? We really need those detailed pics of the "Wastelands" HF case here!!! One of the more "inspired" HF auction pieces!!!!

    In the meantime, if you need a case for your "Salem's Lot" Centipede edition...




    Black lacquer, silver engraving, very nice!!!!

    Very nice, but you know the case I mean!!!! LOL LOL

    BTW, great idea going "white" for the limited.





    BTW, purely an opinion, but I believe that cases like these will only add to their value as time goes by. Maybe not in the "immediate", but surely in the "long-term". Craftsmanship rarely loses it's value IMHO.

    If it were me I think I would have sculpted it and gone all arty on it giving it a lot of oldy worldy character, but then that's me. What do I know.

    That's because you just an 'artsy-fartsy' kinda gal!! Maybe we need to start working on a sculpture of a snarling dogs-head to put on the cover of a "Cujo" case???

    Actually, apart from the "Carrie" cases, I do have another sample of your excellent work coming up soon............. but you can't put the cart before the horse -- or the sausage before the eggs -- or whatever........

    This is one of the newest cases I've made. You might have seen a preview of the art in the "Joyland Collecting" thread. Our own Harrison Ryan did this art and is currently working on another drawing so there will be two to choose from. I did this one as a slipcase but the art can be engraved onto either a slipcase or a traycase ... It might be difficult to see in the pic but the spine label is brass lettering on a black background, the liner is a deep blue.

    There was some discussion in a different thread that this case contains a 'spoiler' image so I"m putting the pics under spoiler tags -- if you haven't finished the book yet, you might want to be careful about opening this...

    Possible spoiler images
