    Default The Gunslinger Metal cases

    I was given a prototype metal case for The Gunslinger. The case is unique in several ways:
    • It is made out of aluminum and then anodized black. It can be anodized in an assortment of colors.
    • The case feels like gunmetal. It also is "substantial". It weighs 3lbs. 10 ounces!
    • The case has a notched rail inside allowing the case to be slid open to show the book.
    • The artwork is a test, and it could also be "flipped" and put on the other side.
    • The potential is that cases could be ordered with a limitation number or letter that matches a person's S/L The Gunslinger-most anything can be either engraved or anodized onto the metal.
    • The inside is very smooth, not a single exposed surface or edge that a book would catch on.















    Potential art for back side of case:




    Is there interest in this amongst collectors?

    I'd be interested, but wouldn't be surprised if it's out of my league moneywise. it is a beautiful case though.

    You have my interest as well... When do you think you might have an estimate of cost?

    Very nice but ultimately its just a case and not nearly as important as the book it holds

    I am trying to gauge interest. Looks like I can rule out mistercrowley.

    See, I agree not as important as the book it holds, but look at the book it's for. It deserves an exceptional case. Kinda like it doesn't matter if you have cheap kit bookcases or fancy barrister bookcases or some such thing (at least in the short term), but of course most book collectors are going to want the nicest bookcases (and nicest cases in general) that they can afford. It's about the best protection and presentation. I guess it's a matter of aesthetics though. This to me is one of the nicest slipcases that I've seen.

    I'd be interested to know who is producing them, we're always looking for cool case makers for the really high end projects.

    I would not be interested. If and when I get a Gunslinger S/L I would keep it in the original slipcase.

    I would be interested. I think theyare very unique and would love to have one. However the cost will determine if I actually order one. It is just a case and I will only spend so much on a case !

    I would like to get one depending upon the cost.
    I would want to put my second edition of The Gunslinger in it. I don't think I would keep my S/L (if I had one) in it.
    After seeing the other pictures of the slipcase I think it is very beautiful and would very much like to have one.

    I agree that this would be a nice case for either the Grant 1st or 2nd but not the S/L. Interested.

    I'm on the fence, but slowly tipping to the "But" side. The more I think about it.....

    Price is of course a factor. Are we looking at $300 or better? BTW I really like the art especially the potential "back side" image.
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    IMHO I feel the art work looks like a shop sketch & not a finished product.

    Glad you don't want one.
    Perhaps I didn't convey that these are test mules. The beauty of the design is that (If we choose), the art on the front and back will be ala Carte, the buyer chooses from art we have available, OR within the design parameters submits their own art.
    Since there are only 2 cases done, as I mentioned these are tests, and the one member who helped submitted the drawings.
    I am getting pissy now, but I challenge you to provide your own original art that doesn't "look like a shop sketch".

    You should make two versions...one that is big enough to hold a Grant 1st/2nd/3rd printing, and anohter size that holds the S/L and slipcase that came with the book.

    I have to agree. I know one of our members here drew the gun...but it's not perfect. If I was going to pony up the cash for the case, I would want it to be perfect.

    Well, no one asked you to "pony up" at all. If you don't like it, fine!!!! Really, do you people feel a need to crap on anything you don't care for????? Is it that much of an obsession?? If you are not interested, just say so and be done. I'm out obviously my open thoughts are not welcome.

    There are 4 cases left. We will likely do no more, and if we do, they won't be garage "sketch art".
    1 case is green, the other 3 are black. The first 4 people to PM me and pay $269 + Shipping get them. The first "green Case" PM gets the Green case.
    Here is your chance to have a 1/~6 case.
    After these 4 cases are gone, this thread will be archived.

    I like its finish and how it slides out. Funds are low though so no dice. I'm sure whoever gets this will be happy. And Merlin, chill man, people are respectfully giving opinions, no one's talking shit.
