    Default The Shining Folio Society

    FYI Folio just release The Shining illustrated with a drawing to win a signed edition

    This is what I received but the link does not work for me:

    I love the art in this edition... I think there are only 10 signed copies available.
    Wanted: Human skin edition of The Book of the Dead. Will accept PC copy.

    Yes. Just what we need. Another edition of The Shining. But still, I ordered one and entered the drawing. Sigh!

    Thanks -- entered. I won't be picking up a copy, though...heck, I'm not even picking up the CD version. The Sub Press edition will do me just fine (but I certainly wouldn't turn down a free, signed Folio ed.).

    Also entered the drawing but agree, how many editions does one need? This would make four(which in comparison to others is minimal I'm sure ) However, I don't know much about these particular editions. What are Folio books and how do they rank as a collectible?
    Thanks for posting by the way!

    Unless there's a good reason not to get it, I'm getting a copy. They're great quality books, very readable, and the 4 of 11 art samples look fantastic to me. Thanks for sharing, 1 of 10 signed copies will be an amazing prize.

    So the drawing states that it's only open to non-customers... does that mean we should wait to buy a copy until after the drawing?

    Under the terms and conditions, it says new customers. http://www.foliosociety.com/pages/sh...and-conditions

    But good point, that's odd.

    "For the chance to win a signed copy, simply place an order from our May 2016 Collection before midnight (UK time) on Sunday 26 June and your name will automatically be entered into the prize draw. Click here for T&Cs."

    I ordered one. It looks great.

    (and on a side note found they have also announced two editions of Terry Pratchett's 'Mort' so I picked up the limited of that too!)

    This is King's first Folio appearance, as far as I know, so it's hard to gauge. I can say that there are a couple Folio volumes that I've had my eye on for a while so track on eBay, etc., and their collectible value is generally minimal and like a used car falls as soon as it's yours, similar to an Easton though even a bit more decline,given that there is no gilt, leather, etc w/ the Folio. Since it's King and there's no previous example, it's hard to say for certain, but for general purposes, one buys a Folio book because they want a decently produced example of a book they like, but not as an investment.

    I entered with my name and email and I am a customer and it took it. Not sure how they are basing it. Maybe I'll have my girlfriend who is not a customer enter as well.

    Thank you! I've been reading up on these a little and it appears that they are very nice editions and not very expensive(compared to what we're used to, lol) so what the hell, another Shining for the shelf!
