    A thread that asks for people's opinions to gauge interest in a slipcase, and then throws abuse at people who comment they don't like the art. Interesting.

    I think the case is awesome, especially how it slides open. I'd be interested but expect the price to be outside what I'd be prepared to pay for a case though.

    **edit** I missed the post with the price. I think that is quite reasonable actually. Still outside my budget, but probably a good deal for the lucky purchasers.

    I like the cases a lot, especially for the $269 price tag. I didn't really consider putting a Gunslinger first edition in it until it was brought up. That's not a bad idea. My worry at that point would be that it stands out (and I guess that's kinda the point, lol) from the rest of my first editions. Just like the Dolso cases, they stand out and you can display them, but, if you're like me who only wants to have ONE representation of a particular first edition, it leaves a hole in your first edition section.

    Oh, and Bill ... octopus!

    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.
    Time to switch to decaf.

    Last I checked this was a discussion thread...so that's what I was doing...discussing.

    And you are correct..no one asked me to pony up the money.....which is why is said "if".

    For the record....the drawing is significantly better than what I could produce.

    Jesus. Why are you offended by someone else's opinion?


    Personally I love the case itself. I do think the gun art/sketch could use a little work. The case is so smooth and finished; the font used is also streamlined; so the gun itself seems a little off and out of place.

    I think they're beautiful and especially fitting for a book, to me, as important as any "bible".

    But at the risk of being abused.....am I the only one who sees a penis in that last picture?

    I really like the slipcase a lot, but it's out of my price range for a case right now.

    Here is your chance to have a 1/~6 case.
    After these 4 cases are gone, this thread will be archived.
    EDIT: There are 2 black cases left. The price is $249 +$20 shipping. I quoted the wrong price earlier, my mistake.

    I decided to have Cook do a case for me that is "reversed". The flipped one is on the right. Check it out:

    Bump.
    There is a small possibility to make a few cases. They would be with new art, and therefore a new and distinct case.
    Go back and read the thread. The possibilities for art, case cover, opening direction, etc. exist....

    A well renowned artist (slow down Bob, it's not Glenn Chadbourne), has created a piece and authorized its use on a case.

    You should be.
    If it all works out as it should, there will be a case auctioned off benefiting the Fundraiser. The previous few older/original art cases are still out there (in fact I own one). Not everyone loved the art, but the cases themselves were/are a marvel.
