Just a reminder that anyone who wants to qualify for the next exclusive signed Limited Edition chapbook I’m publishing for my Patreon supporters just needs to sign-up for Level 2 or above by the end of the month!
This chapbook is going to be a bit of a surprise and different from the previous ones, and I don’t want to ruin the fun by saying too much, but I just have to show off the cover artwork because I love it so much:
Our slipcase and box maker toiled over several different prototypes for The Dark Man Artwork Portfolio before coming up with a design that would protect the artwork for years to come. The stack of artwork is nearly 1.5 inches THICK, so housing the artwork in a way that didn’t bend or stress each print was our highest priority, which is why it took three tries to get the case just right. We ended up designing a special two piece slipcase system that we’ve never used before and we’re thrilled with how it turned out. This will begin shipping next month, but you can see a few of the first photos below:
This color painting by Glenn Chadbourne is inspired by “The General” by Stephen King and is featured in the Lettered Edition of Screamplays, which Cemetery Dance Publications is sending to the printer next month:
Here are some photos of the Deluxe Limited Edition and the Deluxe Lettered Edition of The Dark Man by Stephen King, published by Cemetery Dance Publications. Each copy of the Lettered Edition includes a hand-drawn Dark Man illustration by Glenn Chadbourne that was tipped into the front of the book. You can see some samples in this post. In addition, you can watch a very short video demonstrating how the Lettered Edition box opens in this post.
The Cemetery Dance Publications special editions of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King sold out in record time, but there was an unannounced special feature for the Gift Edition we were saving as a surprise. Word got around about it, though, so I’m pleased to show a sneak preview of Glenn Chadbourne’s paintings for the endpapers of the Gift Edition. There are no spoilers in these images, but there are some very neat elements from the story that you’ll recognize as you read it:
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Erin S. Wells on several projects now, including It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stephen King and my Dueling Minds anthology among others. Several collectors hired her to remarque their copies of It and she was kind enough to let me share a few samples here on the blog. (A remarque is an original drawing created by an artist directly in the book.)
