    I managed to grab a copy of the The Shining from The Folio Society signed by Stephen King in that weird sale they had a few weeks ago. First signed King.

    Good looking out! I knew you had my back.

    Me too! That’s why I just opted to become a subscriber. It hits the wallet pretty hard, but there’s never a worry of missing out and/or talking myself out of a book.

    I expected a premium price, but this might be too rich for me. (Jerad told me price in an email when I expressed interest in a possible unsigned version.)

    And lastly, a couple of quick pics of the interior illustrations by David Ho, which are beautiful. Overall, it's a gorgeous edition.

    Here's Childhood's End sans dustjacket. I don't know what this is bound in specifically--Centipede's website only states "clothbound"-- but it feels very luxurious.

    Here a few pictures of Childhood's End's slipcase. There is a nice inlay in the slipcase. Unfortunately, mine was scratched upon arrival. I'm debating about contacting Jerad to get a replacement. I try not to be too picky about these things, but the book was $300.

    I received Centipede Press's edition of Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke. While it isn't a surprise given Centipede's reputation for putting out quality books, I was very impressed with the final product.
