    I wonder as well. I challenge all the "Experts" of King signatures to assess this signature...

    That is a "perfect" King cramped signature, however it's either a facsimile (lots of dots as though from a lousy printer, or a great tracer), or a terrible "chop" copy.
    Certainly no expert here, but my guess is fake. Size of signature too small (perhaps on the UK 11/22/63?). Either that or a facsimile and it has been reduced to size from printing based on the granular looking ink Jerome pointed out.

    I can't tell for certain. My first thought was that it was signed using a real fountain pen with real ink. It has that scratchy looking quality that the metal tip on the pen used to impart to the writing. I suspect it is real but I would like to see it in person. I wouldn't buy it without an ironclad return policy in case I didn't like it after seeing it in person.

    Is this one of the 200 UK copies? I agree with Bob. Seeing it in person would help, or better yet, seeing another one posted for a side by side view would help as well

    So is this confirmed that there will be 200 signed UK copies?

    If yes, is it 200 signed and 500 unsigned?

    Yes Ralph it is the UK facsimile signature. I think Bob was spot on when he says it was done with a fountain pen and real ink. That would account for the scratchy look. I actually like this signature. I looks much better on the actual book, rather than the picture.

    Just mail it back to me, media mail and I will send you out another one once I get that one back.

    PLEASE put it to MY attention Karen French, or the boss will open it and you will NEVER see the replacement! LOL

    Here we go, i have a publication date for the french version : 13th of june!

    And it's literal translation would be "the key of the wind" (la clé des vents). I sort of prefer it, more poetic.

    It appears that PS has only taken 120 pre-orders for the slipcased TWTTK. It's going to be some time before they get to give away their ten copies of "One for the Road".

    On an unrelated note, I was caressing my copy of LSOE last night, and I can't wait to get my hands on TWTTK.

    I thought the slipcase was black, but it looks green in these pictures.

    I thought the Artist Edition of TWTTK was supposed to be numbered. Is it not?

    Also, hi. New guy here. Just got a new job and I'll be rewarding myself with a copy of the AEs of both TWTTK and LSOE.

    Thanks for the kind notes, folks. Oh, and is there any hope that maybe Jae Lee hid a few remarques in the Artist Editions?
