    I'm just toying with that idea for moment - can't go rushing into these things.

    While completing the recent "what books would you like Suntup to publish?" survey that was sent out, one of my selections sent me down the GOTTA HAVE IT road - and that book would be Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves.

    This is a book I remember starting many years ago but never finishing it because it got a place where it was difficult to read. The various typeset and font and formats made it a challenge, but one that I think would be a beautiful edition from Suntup.

    Even though it's been years since I first attempted to read this, there are still parts that I read that haunt me to this day. Just something about it.

    I only owned a paperback copy, so I started off down that road of tracking down a first hardcover copy. I had to really research this book because it's confusing - the first editions are marked Second Edition, so it was difficult to know what you were looking at on-line.

    But I did manage to track down a really nice 1st Hardcover that's signed.

    So I present my latest purchase - House of Leaves.

    Here's the confusing part - the Title Page says Second Edition, but the copyright information page shows First:

    I also found the companion piece - The Whalestoe Letters:

    I really should make it a priority to read this since I spent all this time (and money) on tracking these editions down.

    Odd that the P.O. would consider it unless than $25 when they retail at $30. I don't believe I've ever had to email BL about an issue so I can't speak to their turnaround times. Hopefully they get it fixed for you sooner vs. later.

    Yea, it's nuts. I had a two-day priority package stuck in L.A. from July 20th until it finally arrived to me on August 12. Surprisingly with everything going on, I haven't had too many issues with delays.

    The Red Dragon Numbered slipcase is just insanely nice. I keep looking at it from different angles just to see the color and texture change.
    Congrats! It's a super production for sure!

    Interesting observation - aka oblivious as HELL! - I didn't realize the cover art was of a train car until I got the slipcase. Yeah, I'm super observant.

    Book fit perfectly in the slipcase, even with the Brodart cover, so great job CD!

    I’m never in the market for these slipcases—clearly In the minority because CD sells a TON—but I’m always impressed with the pictures I see of them. Congrats on the addition.
