    Cool idea, very intriguing.
    Can you share a little more depth to the project, layout, king of information you'll be providing, etc.
    Maybe share one example of one book, like a moderately difficult one.
    Is the plan to have 1 page per book.
    My apologies if this has already been covered.
    Thanks

    The book will be 32 pages, pocket sized (3.5x5) and printed here in the US . . . As we're in the editing phase, sharing the layout isn't feasable at the moment . . . and as it's only 32 pages, it won't be one page per book.

    Each book will be listed by publisher, publication year, cover artist, and cover price . . . then there will be the markers. I'll be listing stated edition, number lines, gutter codes, printing errors, dust jacket states and color of binding, boards and endpapers for each book.

    I can finally chime in on an autograph authenticity opinion. That King Signature is a FAKE! Not a 1977 sig. Attack! Ha! Such a cool idea.
