    There is quite a few differences between the lettered and limited edition of Carmilla. It has a different leather binding, black instead of red (I actually prefer the read a bit), sprayed silver edges, different endpapers, an additional colour art piece and a small Remarque from Alex McVey.





    I actually prefer these to the limited edition, but both are really eye catching.



    Love the V V for this lettered edition.



    The art beside the Remarque is the new piece, possibly the best in the book.

    Your CD Shelf looks a lot like mine. I wanted to get Kin. I think I hesitated and then it was sold out.

    Also, it's interesting how you display your books. I have them slipcase side out. I was wondering about the proper way to display.

    Thanks for the comments Jeff! I don't think there's a specifically proper way to display. I like the way the spines look and it matches my non-slipcased books. Also not every slipcase has a title on it so that's another benefit. That said it's probably better for maintaining the book to have it facing in to prevent light fading or dust accumulation. At the end of the day I think the answer is; To each his own!

    I agree. I've switched back and forth as I'm made new additions. I settled on slipcase out for the exact reason you listed--for the extra protection it affords. And you're right, however they're most appreciated is the best way.

    Newest addition that I finally got around to photographing.











    The boards are bound in good quality grey cloth, like the slipcase. It sports some thick black endpapers, not too fancy, but still nice. This is a truly outstanding edition. I'm not sure I've ever seen such crisp and distinct black & white art, and it suits it so well. #11 is pretty cool too, matches my Lonely Road copy of The Exorcist.

    That's a great edition of Ghost Story. Do you know when it was released?

    Thanks Martin! That about covers it. I didn't realize about the publisher's letter. Mine did not come with it unfortunately. Almost wish I hadn't have known now. Everytime I look at it I'll know it's missing something.

    Agreed. Having that book is really special. I've got an Easton (unsigned) version that I'm happy enough with, but Ghost Story is such a cornerstone of a work it's extra special having a signed limited. Very nice.

    Yeah I'd considered getting the Easton Copy too, but this one just pulled me. Maybe I'll double dip. It was probably the best book I read last year.

    Huh, I didn't know, either...not sure mine has it.

    Hold on, let me pull it from my shelf and see...

    No, mine (#222) doesn't have it, either. Makes me kinda wonder if a publisher's letter (and whatever it contained) was truly distributed with each copy or not.
