    Magnificent library! Congratulations!

    And congrats also on the deluxe Shadow of the Torturer. An edition I will always long to own, but accept that I never will. Enjoy it!

    Artists Inspired By HP Lovecraft, published in 2008 by Centipede Press. Published in multiple states, of which this is 1/1, utterly unique and one of a kind.

    Quarter leather and custom cloth binding with a lenticular image set into the cover, then housed in a massive, luxurious clamshell traycase.

    Accompanying it is a second slimmer traycase, also bearing a lenticular piece on the exterior. Inside it houses three bound lenticular prints as well as 5 signature sheets signed by most of the living artists who contributed to the collection. Many of them provided rather intricate doodles to accompany their sig.

    The traycases are matched in size and meant to be displayed together and this entire set is probably the pinnacle of Centipede Press's extant work in my opinion. I have some close seconds on my shelves, but I am not sure I own a single volume of any sort whose overall presentation exceeds this one. This is certainly the rarest single volume in my collection and possibly the most beautiful. I really need to get around to taking some clearer and fresher pictures of the set.



























    Again, I pose my question: you seem to like high end books... do you collect Suntup editions?

    Kris, I believe that an aficionado of Colin Dexter would most certainly have done his homework on Suntup Editions.

    Sorry. I loathe lengthy typing on my phone and was waiting to get back to a PC to address the Suntup question. Yes I am well aware of them. No, I do not collect them. The gist of it is that when Misery was announced, I felt that the price point was extreme for a fledgling press whose only real completed project prior was an art portfolio. The shockingly high up front cost of their lifetime buy in set off a bevy of red flags for me. So after much deliberation I chose to pass on adding them to the small number of presses I collect. In hindsight it appears my misgivings were not borne out. Suntup has put out some good products and they seem to be building a good reputation for quality work. But the secondary market prices for people selling their limitation slots are nothing short of predatory so I continue to pass.

    In short, they were too fringe for me to justify the prices at the outset and they’re too trendy for me to justify trying to buy in now given the high secondary cost. But I do not disagree about the quality of their work and given my druthers I may have made a different choice on the day the Misery preorder was in my reach.

    The Face That Must Die
    Ramsey Campbell

    9.a Quarterbound leather and cloth, traycased, signed by Ramsey Campbell, Poppy Z. Brite, and J.K. Potter: 20 – $225 (Red roman numerals)
    9.b Clothbound with dustjacket, signed signed by Ramsey Campbell, Poppy Z. Brite, and J.K. Potter: 300 – $65
    9.c Trade paperback: 3000 – $14

    Published as Millipede Press; 2006
    Original price: $225/$65/$14

    Hey! It’s been awhile!

    That should be the official tagline of the bibliographical portion of this thread.

    The Face That Must Die was the second title from Millipede Press, and the second book in a series that I’m going to make up a name for, right now: the “circle series” (you’ll see why in a second, and also that I’m not particularly creative). “Series” in this case means a collection of books that are typographically and stylistically similar or identical. The books themselves are not related.

    The circle series books are well represented in the previous post (http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...=1#post1145116) and so I’ll just document the cases in which a particular circle series book is different from its predecessors – usually just the dustjacket and limitation page.

    I’m referring to this as the circle series because these books all share the same relatively-short-lived Millipede Press logo, a yellow circle/spiral on the top of the spine, like here:



    Cover design for these books was generally a black upper band with art underneath.



    I like this particular limitation page (and this particular book) because it has some excellent contributors. Another thing to note about this series and early Centipede Press books in general: the signature page is generally a free-for-all. As in most cases that usually results in the same general order and placement of signatures, but not always. Later books introduce those nice lines that indicate to authors where to sign.



    Folks here may recognize the bottom signature as JK Potter’s, artist and contributor to several limited King editions.

    The middle signature is New Orleans author Poppy Z. Brite, who provides a fantastic and insightful introduction, as always. Unfortunately, having retired from fiction writing after a nice run of good gothic horror novels and countless chapbooks and shorter works, we hear from Poppy less and less these days. Poppy is now known as Billy Martin, though when he does intros or makes other contributions to books, he still uses his old professional name and signs as “Poppy Z. Brite”.

    The top signature is of course the signature of the quite prolific British author Ramsey Campbell. I’m sure that most folks here have heard of him and probably read some of his stuff!

    You’ll also notice the same type used and mentioned (Fleischmann).

    Up next - the next title from the Millipede Press imprint and the third book in the circle series:

    Jeez, that sounds too pricey to me. I had a hard time selling that exact same edition on eBay (yes, several years ago, but still) for $500. Think I ended up taking $400. I'd put that edition at... $750. The book is the exact same as the "trade". Just comes with a folder of selected prints, and the blank traycase.

    Jerad informs pre public through his newsletter in which he asked last week if people were interested to reserve a copy. He always sends these on Sundays. They are my most favorite thing to read on a Sunday.

    It wasn't exclusive, you didn't need to own the previous CP book or even the previous Arthur C. Clarke book. If you had emailed Jerad and expressed interest in ordering the book, he emailed you the private link one day before he sent out the newsletter (today) to everyone.

    When I first received the newsletter this morning and looked at the Childhood's End listing it was "on sale" for $300.
    Now it only shows up at $325.

    That seems to be a common CP practice. He'll offer a discount price to early direct orders and then they go back to regular price.

    What do you guys think about the Book of the New Sun re-do? I for one would love to get a modern updated set, even if it will be an unsigned one. The old one cannot be found anywhere for a reasonable price and the mismatched heights of the books would probably drive me nuts even if I did end up buying one. Folio Society recently did a limited edition (of just the 4 books) but something about that art style put me off.

    I don't understand what all the fuss is about with regard to Childhood's End (the physical book, not the story itself). The design specifications don't sound all that spectacular.

    Am I missing something?
