    DR's raw materials, rather than ordinary pieces of canvas or paper, are pre-existing works whose physical form differentiates them from other instances of the same intellectual content before DR ever gets involved - first editions are considered the cream of the crop among otherwise ordinary trade publications (I don't collect first editions - perhaps you also do not - but I understand their significance and value to collectors).

    While DR is free to use non-first editions - and it is true that you can rebind anything - when producing a small, one-time batch of rebound books to the highest level possible, in what is in part a labor of love toward the novels themselves, doesn't it make sense to begin the process by reaching for the very top shelf? To do otherwise would seem to undercut Paul's mission (I can't see the person who wrote the content at http://dragonrebound.com/about/ settling for second best on any part of this).
    Maybe...maybe not.

    Interesting...everything would be exactly the same except for the designated edition. Since the rebinding has altered the original product can it still be considered a true first edition? If not, then what difference does it make which edition is utilized as long as it has received the DR treatment?

    I respect your position but to me it's just quibbling over the medium (oil, acrylic, watercolor etc) and surface used (canvas, masonite, paper) in a beautiful painting. The art is in Paul's design and materials, not which block was used.
    But then again? I prefer oil painting. To me a 1st is part of the package and older frists

    Ben, are you the one (as I think I recall) with a single copy of Second Coming with the black and white photos? (That's the book I fantasize about having in a mind-blowing custom binding).
    Maybe...maybe not.

    That is correct. It's a prototype with basic black leather casing, foil stamped title and plain cloth slip case. The original plan was a bit more elaborate as I toyed with the idea of embossing the Sarlinov (vampire's original name) coat of arms (rampant wolf) on a coffin shaped traycase made of banded oak and foil stamping it on the cover of the book as well. In the end I decided an understated and spare look flowed better with the images used. That, and the fact that I'm not all that creative!
    Hard to believe it's been 15 years...

    FYI for those entered the Stand lottery the website was updated with this:

For now, there is no need to check email/spam because we have not notified anyone yet. It may be up to a week before we notify the winners because we have a very busy week. We will get to this ASAP. Thank you for your patience.

    Are there materials used in The Stand rebound that are incredibly expensive? Of course the expertise needed to hand craft something like this is out of this world, is that where the majority of this cost is justified?

    Other DRs stand out to me for their super creative designs. This one, not as much, but man I'd really love to see one in person. I really like the elegant clamshell case

    I'm more curious about the time and expense of sourcing the blocks; that can't have been easy or cheap.
    Maybe...maybe not.

    This binding design is more elegant and refined than the other rebinds in my opinion, which is the style of the binder who created it. The materials make up part of the cost of course, but the labor hours play a big part. It takes a tremendous amount of time to craft each book. The skills of the binder also come into play. When you have spent a good part of your life refining and perfecting a certain skill, there is a value attached to the application of that skill. I think you must have developed an appreciation for this style of binding and what is involved in creating it, in order to see the beauty in it. But of course, as with any artistic output, it is all very subjective.
