    You know I actually knew the boards and cloth was called that, it just didn't click in my head. Probably just wishful thinking on my part. I still think the should have done more to differentiate the limited from the gift, even if it was just a different color cloth and a printed limitation page.

    Regarding UTD, I have the UK limited edition, and love it. Even though I don't have the US version, I'd vote for that just because they didn't bother with the signature page and slipcase that everyone was expecting...

    It was typically used around the turn of the last century - a case-bound book would be basically boards as opposed to wraps, which were for the paupers.

    I agree with you webstar. The book is the polar opposite of "worst" or gaudy.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the bullets imbedded in the cover. I really like the use of the checks for the signatures and limitations, but those bullets just seem silly to me.

    I've never seen a copy in person though, so maybe it's just the pictures doing it justice.

    The same goes for any edition where the publisher attaches an object to the cover, in my opinion. Charnel House tacked a leveler to the cover of one of their publications and it just looks horrible.

    That's about as scandalous as I'll get here, haha...

    That's my gripe with it as well. I love the use of the checks too. The reason I'd be more than happy with a S/L.

    I think Charnel House did a great job with Last Call, which featured a tarot card to designate the letter, and gambling chips.

    I would agree with Jerome.
    Last Call by Charnel House is a beautiful piece of art and bindery, so much so that they refused to tray case it so it was never hidden from view. That is what I heard and right or wrong I rather like the idea. I believe it was the recipient of awards for the design.
    The only design I do not like is one that renders the book incapable of being placed Ďflushí in a line of books. Or is so ridiculously large it requires a special height shelf space to accommodate it.
    As regards the lettered Regulators it seems there are decidedly Ďlike or dislikeí, very clear defining views. However if I chose dislike in line with someone else, that would make both of us wrong!!
