    I'm getting mine tomorrow!! I'd be happy to post pics of my Chadbourne remarque, but I don't know how to post pics to this forum that aren't attached to a URL.

    I'm also going to find out which number I'll have for the rest of the series (and Sleeping Beauties).

    You should be able to upload them. Click the picture link, click the tab that says "from computer", click "choose file", find your file, then click the little text that says "upload files". It should add the picture as an attachment on the post.

    I posted an unboxing video. You can see my remarque at 6:12 if you don't want to hear my blather.

    I cringe at the way I hold the book, though . . .

    I have been buying small press limited editions for 19 years and I still get excited when unboxing each one.

    Thank you. Yeah I was torn on getting either the Maitz or Chadborne remarque and I'm very happy with my choice. Though there is a really nice AE of The Shining with a Maitz remarque for sale on eBay right now for $600.

    I think I'll pop a verse when I eventually get the AE of The Stand. Even though it might be 5 years from now.

    Hahahaha, yeah this was a big deal for me. It's the first time I've ventured outside gift editions. And then I splurged on the remarque. It was limited edition overdose. Also, after waiting over TWO YEARS, there was a bit of pent up anticipation to vent.

    I've been buying for close to 30 years...maybe that's my problem. ;-)

    The Remarque is fantastic! Thanks for sharing! Now I'm even more excited to get mine!

    I saw this as well. It's a pretty nice Remarque, but I actually like yours better.

    There are quite a few of AEs of The Shining on Ebay right now.

    There tend to be. We have a fair number of people who buy these things just to flip them. We also have some retailers who list their unsold copies on eBay as well. All that said, I would suggest to anyone who's looking for a gift edition to not spend more than the retail price on the gift just yet. We have a bunch of copies that where short slipcases, that we will be offering up for sale here in the near future once the case maker gets the extra cases done. Also on a different note, if anyone hasn't purchased a Carrie gift edition yet and was waiting for some reason, I wouldn't wait too much longer I expect they'll be gone by the end of the year (probably sooner).

    Thanks! I do too.

    And I'm not surprised to see AEs on eBay, but I was surprised to see the Maitz remarque. At one of 50, it's a pretty rare edition. Something like that, I'd expect a collector to hold onto. Though I think it was a book dealer selling it.

    You never know, sometimes people's fortunes can change in the drop at the drop of a hat. Had the disposable income to spend at the time, now needs to fix up their busted car or liver. The starting bid and Buy Now price really isn't too much of a mark up to be honest. I like the remarque, but having seen all of the ones he did I can say I did like some others more. There's one particular one I really hope to get. Though mine is coming in a GE.

    I wish I could have gone with a Maitz remarque. My original plan was to get remarques from the various artists if they were offered, but I just couldn't justify the amount of money for the Maitz so I went with the Chadbourne, whose art I do like quite a bit. All the Maitz remarques look really good and I hope you get the one your after.

    My AE is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. The countdown continues...

    Yeah, I thought the price was more than fair.

    Where did you see all the remarques?
