    Default Signed Colorado Kid

    I bought this yesterday.

    Seller was local and they agreed to knock $20 off of the starting bid (the book had already run once with no bidders) if I picked up and paid cash.

    I know the Sharpie signature is less than desirable, but this is a tough item to find signed....and besides, I was at the event in which it was signed.

    My next new pride and joy is literally sitting at a depot 20 miles away from me.

    I'd like to be patient but it is the holy grail, S/L The Stand.

    Can't wait to get it tomorrow. I could have collected it tonight, but my other new pride and joy needed feeding and didn't have the time to go collect it.

    Ah well, tomorrow will be special. Register my baby as officially born, get new windows in the house, and take delivery of this wonderful book. Exciting day.

    I'm honoured obtaining this book at this point in time, given the passing of Bernie. I look forward seeing the artwork first hand.

    There has been some amazing pride and joys this week. Here's mine.

    Book is immaculate, but the box needs a little work.

    The bottom panel is pretty marked where it has been stood, and the joint in the bottom right corner isn't as flush as the other corners, as if it has been removed once before, and didn't quite fit together. I've not seen one before so not sure how flush they normally are.

    Also the rim the lid sits on is pretty fragile and split in a couple of places and needs strengthening somehow.

    Nothing that can't be addressed by an expert.

    Your post on restoring the box is excellent and shows very similar areas that needs work. Only for the skilled I think.

    Ps and yes, one very happy cat indeed. Waited a long time for this one.

    Hi Shaq, I had some similar issues with my Stand Limited box. I found a very nice gentleman who specializes in antique box restoration and TBH this type of box is very simple work for him. The website is http://www.jackdawboxes.co.uk/ and you can email Adrian on info@jackdawboxes.co.uk. If you mention "Simon" and that I popped in on the way to Cornwall with a similar Stephen King Box I'm sure he will remember!
    "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

    By the way, your avatar photo is incredible, if thats as it was taken and not had some photoshopping of the bird in the foreground, it's a fantastic image. Love to hear the story behind it.
