    I personally really don't understand the appeal of a $150 JAWS paperweight (what do paperweights have to do with Fine Press books?), but- that's what makes collecting interesting. And, while I am also one of those who've actually read the book and found it a bit bizarre and, ultimately disappointing- I would absolutely buy a numbered edition because that book looks great. All of the editions are wonderfully designed, but that numbered particularly. Wonder how many will be left? Any guesses?

JAWS is especially painful, since I don't own a dozen other small-press versions of it, like I do with THE EXORCIST.
    Outside of another King or Hill book, I think if I'm able to complete a Jaws set I'll be done with Suntup for the foreseeable future. I can't really think of anymore books that I'd have to have at that level. That being said, I could see myself collecting the paperweights. Those are very nicely done.

    Scored an AE and paperweight, hoping to score a limited tomorrow if any are available. Completely scrolled by the print the first time and missed out. Otherwise, I would have scored that as well. I do have a line (see what I did there) on one aftermarket for at or near cost if I need to go that route.

    I've never read the book but seeing the movie as a kid made me fall in love with sharks. I read everything I could get my hands on about them in my early years. I've been waiting for this Suntup treatment since the beginning.

    Missed out on EVERYTHING because I was presenting a meeting yesterday at work.
    • Every edition looks fantastic. I really don't know which one I like the best, though right now I'm leaning towards the lettered as my favorite. I reserve the right to change my mind multiple times whenever the feeling hits, though.
    • Prices are still WAY out of my price range. Even the AE is pretty stinking expensive.
    • The new cover art for the AE is fantastic and I'm SUPER bummed that I missed on the print and the paperweight. Both are great, if pricey, and, frankly, I was more excited about those than the actual book, which is a first.
    • I'm tempted to enter the lottery for limited or lettered edition if any are available, though I doubt there will be. I'm sure I'll beg off once any are offered, because the prices are rather daunting and DUNE is still on the horizon. My internal battle wages on, though.
    • I can't remember if I've actually read the book before. I feel like I have and I have very clear memories of reading at least the first chapter in the library when I was like 11 or 12. I do remember reading Benchley's BEAST when it came out and remember finding it rather boring.
    Has the next book been confirmed as BLACKWATER by McDowell? If it is, I'm surprised we're getting another limited edition of it so soon as Centipede's edition was just published seven years ago. This would tempt me as I missed out on Centipede's edition, but, like THE AUCTIONEER, I'll probably lean towards just tracking down a copy of the Centipede edition to kill two birds with one stone, getting the title and filling a hole in the Centipede collection.

    I ordered the AE, then saw the print (already sold out) and the paperweight. I debated it for a few minutes, but really, it would just gather dust on a shelf, cool though it is. Next time I looked they were sold out, solving that dilemma.

    There is one movie which actually puts me to sleep and that is Avatar. Feel asleep three times, on three separate occasions, trying to watch that one. I never sleep during movies but that one is like a tranquilizer to me.


    Ok. Fair enough. Incidentally, that one great scene you mentioned was written by John Milius (of Red Dawn, and many others). While I can't understand anyone not absolutely loving every frame of JAWS- I will agree with you on AVATAR- never got through it and I've no real desire to try.

    Suntup is really trying hard to bankrupt me!

    I bought it all... Numbered, AE, print, and paperweight. And the worst part is that I don't even like the novel that much. But I love the film, so the print is more in line with that. And I wanted to have the matching paperweight as a possibility, regardless of whether I keep or sell the numbered.

    That numbered edition is absolutely beautiful! One of the best designs yet for the press, which makes it that much harder for me to sell the title.

    Picked-up an AGE copy. Would have loved to have gotten the paperweight as well, but, since it was pretty much the same price as the AGE itself, I couldn't justify both and ended up passing on it.
