    While it's been a shitty couple of weeks personally, it's been a GREAT couple of weeks book-wise, and I have a couple of things that I've been meaning to post. Here is the biggest and best and first!

    I know that there are literally hundreds of pictures of this book around, and lots of them better than these, but I wanted to post more than just the limitation page, in case anyone had temporarily forgotten how freaking beautiful this whole production is.

    First, the letter of provenance that accompanied the book. I'm grateful to Paul, as I really appreciate stuff like this. Although I'll never in my whole life forget about this experience, it's nice to have small reminders of provenance for the important books in my collection.




    The beautiful (and soft!) black leather and dark red cloth:




    Two-color letterpress printing, with art (after watching the letterpress video Paul posted for The Time Machine I think we all have a new appreciation for what it means to do two-color printing via letterpress!):




    The first Easter Egg!




    God I love these endpapers. Some of my favorite ever. I've mentioned before that I'm a big sucker for hand-marbled endpapers so sometimes I forget that there are machine-printed endpapers that are also just damn beautiful (the recent Rosemary's Baby numbered and the lettered Sleeping Beauties from earlier this year are other great examples).

    I half joke (actually it's only quarter joking, I'm pretty serious) with my wife that I want to wallpaper my office with this paper - it's decadent, but not over-the-top, it's got a wonderful palette and the right amount of white space, and I love love love the gold accents. Not only is it beautiful on its own, but it's wonderfully evocative of a kind of wallpaper that Annie might have in her house.




    Here's the copyright page that housed the long-kept secret (15 months!). Look at that letter "S" just staring everybody right in the damn face!




    And finally, the limitation page. Red ink! I wasn't sure if these would be numbered 1-15 or 186-200 because I've never seen a picture of a red numbered Misery limitation page. Well, here it is, and it's the latter!

    My best Pride & Joy, number 194:

    Iím not super impressed you got the red number. You AND firemonkey solving this Indiana Jones / Da Vinci Code riddle... NOW THAT IMPRESSES ME. It was easily the coolest thing ever in the book world since I joined it 8-9 years ago. I wonder if Firemonkey never noticed it if anyone else would have. I noticed that S on Misery... but thought it was for Suntup. Thus never thought of it again. To do what you guys did shows real brains. Glad you both won a cool prize. It is so cool.

    Thanks everyone! And again, big thanks to Paul for running such a cool contest and firemonkey for being so sleuthy to begin with!

    And Kris, I agree - while I LOVE my new book, the full story behind it: Paul's idea, firemonkey's detective skills, and my fortuitous solution, is really the coolest part. I've never heard of anything like it either, and I'm so happy and proud to be a part!

    When Misery was released, I tried my hardest to completely avoid all pictures of the book until I could see it in person. One night I scrolled down too fast in a thread, saw a flash of this pattern, and immediately closed the tab and avoided that thread - so the endpapers were like the only part of the book I partially saw. Even so, when I opened the book for the first time and saw them in person, I still let out an audible, involuntary gasp. Just spectacular papers!

    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Default Your New Pride and Joy!

    Little gem from used bookstore today. Not in the greatest condition but also not one you find everyday. Considering the upcoming Suntup edition I felt this edition by it on the shelf would do nicely.

    I know a man....

    "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

    Picked up another Whelan piece from the Knowing Darkness set. Not sure if this is Trashcan Man, or just a zombie. It's currently at the framing shop.
