    Valid point. Had I been able to get that one at the published price I would probably have it. I hove only seen it in photos and it does not present value to me at the prices I have seen. I also do not see it for sale much so the high aftermarket prices are probably in line.
    It’s one of those ultra-limited 100-copy releases that Centipede does from time to time, so, yeah, aftermarket copies are few and far between. Looking back, at $175, it’s one I should’ve picked up but didn’t, figuring my FL edition was sufficient…ah well.

    Don’t forget that Centipede also did a limited of THE COLLECTOR, though it was of course posthumous, so our Franklin Library edition remains the only signed limited.

    I think the price is reflective if the effort put into the production. It is clear that this is a special book to Paul.

    On his live feed he stated that the moth included in the Silence Limited was a hint for his next offering. He also mentioned that the hint was a bit obscure for the story and that it already has a limited edition. I mentioned that I hoped it would be The Collector on the TDT forum and Paul responded to another persons guess that they were not correct but that the title had been mentioned. I have the Franklin Library edition and it will be the only limited signed by the author. I really hope I am right, I would love a Suntup production of this book!

    I was thinking earlier about the cost of the giveaway being absorbed into the AE price.

    It really makes the Folio Society set seem that much more appealing. Three Dahl books, including Charlie, for less than the cost of an AE. And all three titles have the Blake illustrations.

    This one does include other illustrations and bonus material though... But my wallet hurts.
    I would assume the margin on all editions has been padded for the giveaways. Does not appear to be hurting sales though.

    The AGE has official sold out. Hope everyone who wanted a copy got one!

I can only assume that the licensing fee for Wonka must be much higher or that some of the cost of that golden ticket giveaway are being passed on.

    Glad I could help. It's a fantastic novel, and I'm so glad to see it (potentially) receive the deluxe Suntup treatment that it so richly deserves, and get it out to hundreds of folks who may be new to it...but on a personal level I just don't need / have room for an add'l copy.

    But, again, it's an incredible work. I even have a large canvas print of the 1st ed. dj on the wall in my upstairs loft area:

    I’m skipping CHARLIE for both the price point and, as Ben said, it holds no particular sentimental value for me, other than I’ve always enjoyed the Gene Wilder movie of it. Plus, while I am a general fan of Dahl’s fiction, I’m not a reader or collector of his — or anyone else’s — children’s fiction, that’s just not a genre path I’m interested in going down, however tempting it may be from time to time. One has to draw the redline somewhere.

    I also skipped Lividian’s HEART-SHAPED BOX as I have the S/L of it already. Again: redline. No multiple editions of the same book (save for a very, very select few).

    If an upcoming Suntup announcement is THE COLLECTOR, I have the signed limited of that one as well, so the redline kicks in.

    If it wasn’t clear I just meant the numbered (with the comparison to Blood Meridan) and above was letterpress.

    Charlie has 50 inline color illustrations as opposed to inserts as well as sixty pages of bonus features so those are also possible factors.
    I am assuming that the inline color illustrations require a different paper stock which would impact cost.

    That's good to know. I didn't think the AGE was printed on letterpress as I didn't see mention of that anywhere in the description. I thought only the other states were printed on Letterpress. In the description for the AGE, it mentioned that it is printed offset on archival Cougar Natural. Because of that, I'm very surprised by the price for the AGE.

    ONLY 75 AEs left. If you want one you need to get one now.

    Out of curiosity, Martin, how did you come to (potentially) guess the next Suntup release? I don't recall there being any teaser info provided in yesterday's facebook live or anywhere else that I have seen. I too would love 'The Collector' by John Fowles to be the next announcement. It is an amazing book and I only have a beat-up mass market copy that I would love to upgrade with a Suntup AGE.
    I think the price is reflective if the effort put into the production. It is clear that this is a special book to Paul.
