    For what it's worth, this is a situation where we had arrangements in place for the sheets to be signed, which is why we offered the book to the CDCC and those who bought the previous book, but when we found out from the author's agent that plans needed to change, we put the official announcement on hold. Everything else for the project IS ready for the printer, and we'll officially announce the book and sell the remaining copies once the sheets are signed.

    Quick question regarding the portfolios: I cannot remember if I requested the number to match my S/L. Can I still request this? Thanks!

    Since they've reserved the press time for us, I guess it's safe to report we're sending everything for THE CITY OF MIRRORS to the printer by the first week of the October. Due to the time lost around the holidays, I would expect the finished books in January.

    Brian or Dan,
    I was curious so I thought I'd ask..
    No update info for Justin Cronin on the CD production update page from Sept 19th.
    Last conversation you promised by the 1st week in October to the printers.
    Cook
    Yes to all of your points.

    Brian
    Sooo... is everything still a go as planned with the same info?

    I believe that you can request your number all the way to just before it ships. That is when they look at the requests.

    Yep, just email Mindy and let her know what your book number is, so she can add that to your portfolio order.

    This is correct. I'd say you probably have until the 2nd week of October. We just got confirmation that the cases should be here next week, I've just got a couple of things ahead of them in the shipping schedule that I really need to work through first.

    As with the last time I did this, there will probably be a photo gallery on the site later, but I took a bunch of photos of the Sleeping Beauties Artwork Portfolio today for the website. I dumped them over on the CD forums for now.

    Nothing like the Doubleday set. It's a case made out of the same cover material that the limited edition is made out of. So it's simillar to IT but a different design. No one here liked the ribbon tie design of IT so we had the case makers come up with a magnetic latch sort of thing.

    I don't know if I've ever posted about why we went back to a more traditional folder for the Doubleday Years, but here's the short version:

    No one wanted the IT Artwork Portfolios.

    Here's the longer version:

    We priced the IT Artwork Portfolios as low as we could because we know art related stuff is a niche market, and in the end we priced them too low because we barely broke even once the fancy portfolios were paid for... and no one wanted them.

    Most people said the price was the problem. Too expensive for artwork.

    We sold maybe 250 of the 500 by the time the Artwork Portfolio was produced. It took nearly a year to sell the other 250 and many of those were in heavily discounted sales.

    (Of course, now look at what a matching Limited Edition and Portfolio will get you!)

    So, when it came time for the Doubleday Years, we switched back to a more traditional paper folder, which we jazzed up by printing full-color artwork on them. (In the past, the folders usually had a sticker with the title of the project and maybe a small piece of artwork.)

    This, along with the smaller prints, let us get the price point down where people wanted it. We could also increase the run, so everyone who wanted matching numbers could get matching numbers.

    But then some collectors were unhappy that they weren't getting an IT style folder for the $50 price... when those folders alone cost more than $50 each to produce...

    This was the ultimate "there's no pleasing everyone" we've ever encountered.

    Photos are on the product page for the portfolio

    Bonus I snapped some shots of the IT portfolio as well. These actually turned out better than the pictures of the SB folio.

    The actors who played Danny, the Grady twins, and the women in room 237 signed my copy of CD's The Shining today. A bit surreal to see them in person.

    That’s pretty fantastic. I had 3/4 of the cenobites and the woman who played Kirsty sign my Earthling edition of Hellbound Heart.
