Per PS Publishing: The deluxe edition has a couple more component parts.

Artist Glenn Chadbourne is hard at it working his way through 26 one-off super-limited pieces of artwork (‘super limited’ as in “one of one”, sports fans!) that will be included in the traycase as a separate item. But in addition to this, there will be a separate 300 gsm artstock catalogue featuring prints of all 26 pieces. The gallery will be limp sewn bound and will be placed into the tray case with the other items.

The actual book will measure 254 x 175*mm / 10" x 7" (trimmed page size) with color leaves printed on 130gsm gloss/silk (tbc). Where plates fall, blank pages will be left for color leaves to be tipped onto them. These color leaves will be trimmed to fit within the page (e.g. 224 x 145*mm) leaving a white border all round. The book will be section sewn and printed in 4 colour throughout. Nicky is ironing out final choices for head- and tail-bands, ribbon markers, and material options for boards and traycase. The 26 deluxe edition copies are going to be hand prepared by Blissets ( in tandem with TJ, our regular printers (and while we’re mentioning them, hearty congratulations to Neil on the birth of Athena just a few days ago. We’re expecting her to take her position on the production line like the rest of us!)

Of course, the signing sheet of each copy of the deluxe edition will be lettered (as in A—Z, kids!) and that letter will be carried forward onto the gallery catalog, the special original artwork envelope, the book exterior and the actual traycase.

So far, so good.

So, when will it be ready? I reckon it should be June—Nicky and I are keen to have the book as a birthday present to the both of us (Nicky is 3 July, and I’m 4th) but we’ll have to see. Oh, there’s one more thing: Stephen has agreed to sign the sheets for the lettered edition but those sheets are going to be included in the actual book design. So instead of receiving 26 single pages, Stephen, Glenn, James and Kim will receive the eight-page sections, giving us the benefit of not having to tip in the sheets later.
