    Default Book Collection: LokiJake

    Exclusively DT except for #51 Black House which I got with the #51 DT group most of my books are from, and a #36 Eyes of the Dragon. I wanted to incorporate into my home office/desk/gaming area and had wanted to put together a DT collection. Have other books in other rooms for reading, but keeping collection small for now.

    Since originally posting collection, I've also been lucky enough to add some amazing art that helped take my enjoyment and Dark Tower focus to the next level. I have added works by Michael Whelan's and Rachel Readman's as well as their collaboration, The Crimson King sculpture. https://rachelreadman.com/ and http://www.michaelwhelan.com/

    #51 of DT I, II, III, IV-S, V, VII, SoE & #51 AE SoE. #96 III, #226 IV, PC VI, #293 VI, Gunslinger 1st-1stp & 1st-2ndp (unsigned). Since i don't have very much display space, random reading books are on shelves in closets. I have unsigned 1st editions in a hallway area right next to office my wife just allowed me back in after remodel :-)

    New Collection thread! yay!!!

    Nice set up Jake. I actually had to go and check my thread because I thought you had my matching number for W & G. You have #229, My number (for V, VI and VII) is #228!

    Edit: and if you are looking for some extra special bookends, May I suggest "Constant Reader" and 'Silflay' from Rachel Readman. These are exquisite.
    "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

    Congratulations on the new acquisitions! I look forward to seeing your collection grow. Very nice set up. Kris is right--it is definitely an addiction. I think most of us on this board have impulse control issues

    After discovering Rachel's work via Simon/Stroppygoblin, I couldn't wait to incorporate Rachel's sculptures intom my collection. I received my 2 Constant Reader sculptures and after remodel at my house was done in October, i am using as bookends on the end.

    The almost empty area with DT is where the CK statue is going upon arrival.

    Thanks you Rachel. You can see more of Rachel's amazing work at https://rachelreadman.com/

    Of course. They are stashed in random closets and cabinets throughout the house. This is my only collection and favorite series, but I'm thinking of putting some shelves for display in a back bedroom. I've enjoyed putting this together and would like to start acquiring some other authors and a couple of King books. However, I've put this collection together over the last 3 months and have been advised by my wife my life will be easier if I quit buying books and Rachel Readman Sculptures (painted CK is final piece already ordered) until 2017
    My wife is the same way... BUT she has slowly come to the dark side and pretty much lets me collect what I want. She has seen there is money in the collecting side of thing and I play it off as an investment
