    Excellent job, Dave. This is all perfect. I think I've found the bookcase that I want to use for the image now, so I can begin designing the page soon. There will be static images of other King titles in the bookcase with the bookspine buttons. As we amass more books, we can replace them with new buttons until we fill the case. Then we can do another, and so on until we have every edition in known existence. The theme for the area as a whole will be a bookstore, with different bookshelves for different types of editions.

    Aaron, you would best be advised to "build" more bookcases.
    I/we plan on posting 5+ books per week!
    Get ready.

    Oh, absolutely. I am going to use my new bookcase as the template for all of the cases. It is just a simple three-tiered case and it frames my books very nicely. Based on the size of the shelf and the amount of books it can house, it should work. I want to have a case for trade editions, one for numbered editions, one for lettered editions, and probably another for the rarer editions of his short works.

    The image of the book spine, as I've said, will act as the button, but all buttons will link through to a page that encompasses all editions of one particular book. So the link for, say, The Stand trade edition will link through to a page that has images and profiles for all editions of The Stand for easy reference, and the buttons for the limited editions of The Stand would also link to this page.

    Doing it like this, I would only really need to do one bookcase, but it will just be cool to have the graphics separated for effect, and it will also help those who are familiar with the image of one edition of a book and not another. Also, I'd like to do a text-based quick reference page with all of the links listed, in a card catalog format.

    Really, all of this is just the beginning of my ultimate goal of making The Manhattan Restaurant of the Mind a graphical entity on the site, rather than just an area of the forums. I feel that it is better to have the information be the basis of the area, with the forum supplementary to that, rather than the other way around, as it is now.

    Thanks so much for all of your help with this. We couldn't do it without you.

    Here is the limitation page on the Lettered State...in this case there actually was no Letter assigned, they were numbered specially from 1-70.

    Wiz, I couldn't read the text for R.J. "Knapowicz?".
    Correct spelling?

    Title: The Eyes of the Dragon
    Author: Stephen King
    Artist: Kenneth Ray Linkhaüser. Designed and cared for by Michael Alpert
    Publisher: Philtrum Press
    Publication Year: 1984
    State: Numbered 1/1,000 Issue Price $120
    Comments: 26 red lettered, 26 black lettered, less than 10 Artist's copies, 250 red-numbered and 1,000 black-numbered copies produced.
    Like Cycle of the Werewolf, and The Plant, The Eyes of the Dragon (original title:The Napkins) was published without a trade edition in the works at the time. The trade edition of Eyes of the Dragon has important textual differences. Sold by lottery only (at least 3 were conducted), in three ads that ran in F/SF magazines, 1,000 black numbered-editions were sold in order that 250 red-numbered copies could be given as gifts to people on King's Christmas greeting list.
    A visual and tactile sensation, the book stands over 13" (33 CM) tall. The paper was intended to feel like fine linen (The Napkins).

    It should be noted above that the gray edition of The Talisman is actually the gift edition, which was unsigned. 1200 of these were also distributed. The white edition is the s/l.
