    I think $250 would be a bit steep, but I would love to know the projected price and print run. I want one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hard to say. I believe Wiz has said that a Whelan remarque of that size would be about $1000 on the open market.

    I don't know if Dameron is as marketable as Whelan, but still.....

    Even when I love remarques, I wouldn't pay 1000 for one book remarqued.

    I wouldn't pay half that price either.

    I'd be very tempted at any price, but anything over $500 is out of my range.

    If I knew I could put together a set of remarqued DT books, I'd be willing to pay $500 each...but as has been discussed, that isn't likely to happen.

    Love the idea of these remarqued DTIIIs, but it'll come down to price for me. Even at the $250 I suggested (which I just pulled out of my ass btw ) I wouldn't be able to afford it at the moment.

    Despite the Whelan remarques, the ones we usually see at ebay.com never are sold beyond 200 dls. Rick Berry, Les Edwards...none reached that sum if I'm not wrong.

    In my opinion, Whelan and Dameron are the best "illustrators" of the 7 books. Michael's still in a bit of a different league.

    I know the remarque's are large, but they'll always be in the book--unlike an original print that could be displayed on a wall.

    Whatever the price, I will have to consider. And yes--money is tight!

    I'm going take a guess and say that each book will be around $100, as members of TDT.com would most likely be 90% of those purchasing. Combined with the country's economic conditions now, and a couple other variables, I see that price as being about right.

    Maybe just wishful thinking though.

    See I don't see them being that cheap. You gotta figure even with a great deal, the 1st edition books probably cost $40 a pop. As nice a guy as Ned seems to be, I can't imagine any artist putting that much work into a project for $60/book.

    I think the $250 price point is where we'll see this.

    For original art in a 1st ed. DT book, thats not exceptionally steep.

    And its enough $$ in Mr. Dameron's pocket to make it worth his while.

    I guess we shall see!

    I think Dameron is an excellent artist, I enjoyed his work in The Waste Lands immensely.

    However, given the current economic environment, and given that this artist does not have the same reputation and stature as Michael Whelan (to the best of my knowledge), and assuming that these are monochromatic drawings (vs. multi-color, or vs. paintings), I think about $100 for the drawing plus the cost of the book and small overhead would be reasonable. Therefore I'd say approx. $150 plus S&H would be about right. Add a pop for general collectors' addiction (depending on quantity, i.e. scarcity) and $200 wouldn't surprise me.

    $150 to $200 sounds about right to me, too...though I'm not an art collector. But, they are first edition copies, and those are worth something right there.

    I think the question is limitation...if there are 20-40 of them, then $250+ might work...anymore than, say 75, and it's going to saturate what I think is a niche market.

    I think it's a great item, and a good thing for an artist to get involved in...it's not my thing, personally, but it's always fun for their to be an opportunity for a new kind of s/l edition.

    I can tell you that it will be less than 40.

    Most likely less than 30.

    I thing think we are all building the hype for this. tippy4 announced it, perhaps we should wait for him to price the books.
    I have some strong feelings about this, but will refrain at this time from voicing them.

    Ah, I didn't include the price of the 1st edition book. With that included, I'd say you have a nice estimate.

    Now that is wishful thinking.

    I got mine for $55 still in the shrinkwrap, but I got lucky there. I've seen fine shrinkwrap copies like mine all the way up in the hundred dollar range.

    Since you guys asked......

    I spoke to Ned on Monday.

    He had just dropped some preliminary sketches in the mail for me to look at. I am hoping that they arrive either today or tomorrow.

    Regarding the limitation....while this is not 100% set in stone, I have suggested that the number of remarques be limited to 21, and Ned seems to be agreeable with that number.

    As mentioned previously, each remarque will be hand-numbered by Ned. I am thinking in the style of 1/21, 2/21, 3/21..........21/21. Ned suggested Roman Numerals, so that would look like I/XXI, II/XXI, III/XXI..........XXI/XXI.

    Any reason for 21 being the number? If you're going that low, why not 19??

    To be honest, 21 has no significance.

    It was just a random low number that I picked.

    I did not go with 19 because it has no significance to The Waste Lands.
