    Default A Guide to U.S. First Editions of Stephen King

    Preorders are open for a small project I am putting together . . . A Guide to U.S. First Editions of Stephen King. A pocket sized guide to helping identify King's first editions. Something I wish I had when I first started colleting SK's works . . .





    Here's the link to order your copy! https://lightbox-photography-cards.m...f-stephen-king

    Thanks for your time!

    I think our own catalog would be sufficient.

    I absolutly agree that in this digital world, it's as easy as looking things up online . . . but in the spirit of book collecting - real books - I thought it would be fun to put this print project together.

    As with the slip cases I build, the bulk of the proceeds of this project (after printing) will be going to my daughter's high school music program. Last year, we purchased a $4K vibraphone for the concert and jazz bands soley through funds raised by selling my custom slipcases . . . this year, we've already bought them new music stands . . . and have some more things in the works, like custom printed, reusable rain ponchos for the marching band. Rather than turning our kiddos into magazine/chocolate/wrapping paper salespersons, I am tapping into an alternative form of fundraising . . .

    Thank you to those who have already supported the project . . . means the world to me!

    I'll be posting images of the inside once we're out of the editing phase - doing three stages of editing before going to print.

    As for shipping to France, there are international shipping options during check out . . . I know it's different for every country, so I'd hate to quote you something and be wrong.

    Just curious about the "19th edition". I assume you use that due to the connection of the number 19? Or is this really the 19th edition? If so, maybe you could show an inside page from a previous edition? Would be interesting to see what kind of details we can expect for each book.
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606..

    Also, replace 1st/1st that got stolen:

    Carrie, Night Shift, The Stand, The Dead Zone, The Gunslinger

    Your assumption is dead on . . . 19th Edition is inspired by the connection of 19 to everything SK . . .

    I'll see your 3 and raise you 2.

    These will be nice little Secret Santas.

    edit: At least they would have been if I hadn't posted about it.
    The reason I talk to myself is because Im the only one whose answers I accept.

    This is an inexpensive, cool little project relevant to my interests and it benefits a school music program - also relevant to me because of my own kids. Ive preordered several.

    Also ordered. While this site and SK Collector are my bibles I think this will look nice displayed on the first edition shelves.

    Here is one I just had done for an inscribed Slinger. I have 3 so far. Unreal quality... hopefully Paul will share some. His work is very good!
