    Default Book Collection: Ben Eads

    This is my humble book and art collection.

    I keep my gift editions, special editions and signed numbered limited editions in broadart archival quality bags which are stored in brodart archival quality boxes in my closet. Those are the hardest to photograph, obviously.

    I look forward to owning a bookshelf one day that could proudly display them.

    Until then, please forgive the "boxed" and "bagged" pics. LOL

    I feel we should all take a minute to post in Ben's collection thread as he has posted in everyone elses over the last few days!
    Nice Collection Ben - I especially love the artwork.
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Here is Subterranean Press's SNL of NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

    When I went to take pictures of it for the site, I noticed that the Manx art page is damaged! And that's my favorite art piece!

    I wrote Mr. Schafer an email in the hopes he has a book to exchange. Wish me luck, guys! *** Just heard back from Bill at Sub Press. Wow! That was fast! He will take care of it. Bill and his team are amazing people!

    Without further ado, here is the mint condition copy I received from Sub Press in exchange for the damaged one. It's a different number, so I thought I would update the pics.
