The Deluxe Lettered Edition of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King is limited to 52 signed and lettered copies and should be finished at our box maker in April. We received the approval case today and thought our collectors might like a sneak peek. I’ve included the Limited Edition (white traycase) and the Gift Edition (red slipcase) in a few of the shots for reference.
The hand-bound, custom-made book features:
* Three-piece hand-binding featuring Cromwell red leather on spine and Asahi Japanese Blue Mohair Bookcloth for front and back boards
* French Marbled endsheets
* pages edged with hand-dipped silver gilding
* hot-stamped with Light Blue Metallic and Silver Bright foils
* Smyth sewn with cotton thread
* cotton hinge cloth, sewn headbands, and red silk ribbon page marker
* dust jacket with a different design than the other editions
The massive hand-made, custom box features:
* Blue Galuchat covering material
* White Ester Foam With Red Satin Covering
* Two color hot foil stamping
* Heavy-duty premium recycled chipboard
As you might know, the Special Edition of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King from Cemetery Dance Publications was delayed a bit due to an issue with the two full-color artwork foldouts that were to be tipped into the book, but everything was fixed and the books turned out great, as you can see here and here. (Orders are still shipping at the moment, but our warehouse is making a herculean effort to get them all done.)
Our printer shipped us some of the artwork that was printed at the wrong size because we couldn’t stand the thought of them being dumped in the recycle bin, and we were surprised to discover that these are entirely uncut sheets of art. That’s not something people outside the production process normally get to see, so I’ve posted a photo with a copy of the trade hardcover of Doctor Sleep to give you an idea of the size.

The office is insanely busy this week, but here’s a sneak peek at the Slipcased Gift Edition of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King, which will be shipping from the Cemetery Dance Publications warehouse right before Halloween. Sorry for the glare, we took these real quick in the front office!
The Internet is down at the office, but Dan managed to send me a photo of the TRAYCASE for the Cemetery Dance Publications Limited Edition of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. You can click on this image for a larger version if you’d like to see the texture on the covering material:
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:
As many of you know, this fall Cemetery Dance Publications will be publishing a special edition of Stephen King’s new novel, Doctor Sleep, which is a follow-up to The Shining. Here is a preview of the color artwork Vincent Chong has created for the Cemetery Dance edition of this very special book:
