    Today, Hodder and Stoughton posted pics of the proof copy they're releasing and it's a LOVELY hardcover limited to 200 copies. I'm hoping I receive one soon

    I love some of the UK Proofs, and that is a very nice one indeed. (I don't collect them, but admire them from afar.)

    I also hope people here can get this one.

    Is that the first time that a proof for a mass market edition has been a hardcover?
    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    I like those hardcovers; I just hope they are going to update the dust jacket illustration (do we know if that is final?).
    Riddles were all he could think of. Asking them, and sometimes guessing them, had been the only game he had ever played with other funny creatures sitting in their holes in the long, long ago, before he lost all his friends and was driven away...

    Do any of these places ship to the US? (Perhaps this misses the point of an indie edition).

    Forbidden Planet ships to the US, but doesn't charge/calculate shipping until ... it ships I guess?

    When I ordered Later a few months ago from FP, they sent me a separate e-mail informing me of the postage cost (50 pounds I think) and asked for approval before they would ship.

    Ouch. That's a bit steep. I hope that wasn't for just one book!
