Faithful by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King: Special Editions To Benefit Good Causes

This has been such a wild week that I never had a chance to post this on Monday as planned! I’m pleased to announce the first book from Books to Benefit, my little side project, has been announced.

The book is Faithful: The 10th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stewart O’Nan and Stephen King, and it will be raising funds for The Haven Foundation and for organizations that promote cancer care and research. The Haven Foundation gives financial assistance to provide temporary support needed to safeguard and sustain the careers of established freelance artists. The authors also support cancer care and research organizations such as The Jimmy Fund. (You can learn how to donate to The Haven Foundation on their website and you can donate directly to The Jimmy Fund via their website.)

This project has been a lot of fun to work on, and I’m particularly happy with how the cover artwork turned out:

The Special Editions of The Dark Man by Stephen King (Photos)

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 Dark Man by Stephen King Lettered Edition (First Video)

We’ve received the approval copy of the box for the Deluxe Lettered Edition of The Dark Man by Stephen King and we love how it turned out. I thought our collectors might like a sneak peek at a unique feature we worked into this edition that we had never tried before, so you can watch this short little video if you’re interested:

Lettered Edition Art Pages For The Dark Man by Stephen King

We decided to try something a little different for the Deluxe Lettered Edition of The Dark Man by Stephen King. Each copy of the Lettered Edition from Cemetery Dance Publications includes a hand-drawn Dark Man illustration by Glenn Chadbourne that will be tipped into the front of the book.

To make this possible, we printed up special art sheets, sent them to Glenn in Maine, who spent about two weeks illustrating them, and then he sent them back. Now they’re with the printer, who will be carefully placing one in each copy of the Lettered Edition to make that copy unique.

I thought some of our collectors might like to see a few of the drawings so I scanned a couple of pages before they left the office.
