AUCTION LINK (http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/201925055561?)

Up for auction are custom bound books from Stephen King's "Bill Hodges Trilogy". These books was created using US trade 1st edition, 1st printing hardbacks of "Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch".
End of Watch is signed by Stephen King!
Renowned artist Alex Mc Vey created 6 original art pieces. 2 pieces are bound in each book!
The books are bound in Nubuck (I like to think of it as Moleskin), and also feature custom "moire" endpapers.
The page blocks feature sewn bindings, not the regular glued pages. The book blocks should last a lifetime.

The books still fit in the Trilogy slipcase with or without the special publisher dustjackets.

Please note: There is the smallest of imperfection/bump to the top right corner of the "End of Watch" If I didn't mention it, you likely wouldn't even notice.

McVey's stuff is so awesome. Very loose but descriptive. This is another badass project. Great job!

I thought for sure there would be a mad dash on the final couple minutes of this one.
