Very Cool Inscribed Copy of IT by Stephen King

A book collector named Chad was the grand prize winner of TheDarkTower.org’s latest fundraiser for The Haven Foundation and his prize was a copy of the Gift Edition of It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stephen King, which King very graciously agreed to inscribe to him. I absolutely love the inscription and Chad was kind enough to permit me to show off a photo of what King wrote to him and his son: Continue reading Very Cool Inscribed Copy of IT by Stephen King

The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2013

I received my contributor’s copy of The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2013 from Book-of-the-Month Club and once again they’ve gone above and beyond to create a great gift for any type of Stephen King fan, from the casual reader to the serious collector. The theme this year was “King Anniversaries” and the calendar includes excerpts from King books that are celebrating anniversaries in 2013 including The Stand, Christine, Pet Sematary, Bag of Bones, Duma Key, and more. As always, editor Jay Franco did an incredible job bringing together a great group of contributors including a lot of old favorites plus some strong … Continue reading The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2013

The Beautiful Stephen King Artwork of Erin S. Wells

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.) Continue reading The Beautiful Stephen King Artwork of Erin S. Wells

Shipping the It: 25th Anniversary Edition Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio

As mentioned in a previous post, Cemetery Dance Publications has produced a Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio featuring all of the artwork from our 25th Anniversary Edition of It by Stephen King. Our customers have really enjoyed the “behind the scenes” photos I’ve posted in the past when we’ve been shipping a cool new project, so I thought I’d post a few shots here on the blog for this one. These photos, as always, were taken with my patented slightly blurry and out of focus camera technique that would make me an excellent Bigfoot photographer.

Behind the Scenes: The 25th Anniversary Edition of IT Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio

When it comes to my day job at Cemetery Dance Publications, I’m often tossing out random ideas for new projects, just to keep things interesting. For example, I once suggested we put together a huge Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio featuring all of the artwork from the The 25th Anniversary Edition of It by Stephen King that we published in December, even though we had never really tried an artwork portfolio on that scale before. Everyone agreed it seemed like a fine idea, so we made special arrangements with Glen Orbik, Alan M. Clark, and Erin Wells to collect all of their artwork from … Continue reading Behind the Scenes: The 25th Anniversary Edition of IT Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio

Preview of It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stephen King

Cemetery Dance Publications will be shipping the Gift Edition and Limited Edition of It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stephen King next week, and I thought you might like a sneak peek at the Gift Edition.  I took these photos very quickly, and please note that we don’t have the slipcases for the Gift Edition yet, so this is just the book itself, but I’ll post new photos of the finished Gift Edition and the signed and traycased Limited Edition later this month. This exclusive Cemetery Dance Publications deluxe Limited Edition features a brand new afterword by Stephen King, full-color wrap-around … Continue reading Preview of It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stephen King
