    My copy of Julia arrived yesterday. I wish there was a way to convey the quality of the paper used in this one. It’s outstanding.

    It is! I tried to take pictures of it, but my photography skills are seriously lacking.

    Thanks for the insight. Iím torn on picking up the MotWT volume. If they didnít have two more volumes following so quickly behind...

Centipede did an amazing job with this edition: from the cover art and binding, even the paper used on this thing is impressive. I've always had a sweet spot for this understated gem of a book in my heart, but now I'm happy to have this edition in my collection.

    On Wednesday, I received Dead on Arrival-10 Great Fact Detective Cases from the Editors of Hillman Publications. This is a vintage paperback and each segment is a real-life true crime tale. The 10 Great Fact Detective Cases on the cover caught my eye when I first saw this book. I had no idea it was true crime, I thought it was a fiction collection. ~Cap

    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.

    I'm really looking forward to Centipede's edition of Arthur Machen's work.

    Speaking of vintage paperbacks, I picked these items up from ebay. Very cool and super reasonable.
