    I decided to see what the Revival prints look like framed so I swapped out A Pennywise print I had framed for this one. I included the guitar pick. If I decide to keep this one framed I will center it better.

    It is October so apparently it is the month to get orange books.

    Added A Little Orange Book of Obsessions by Blake Crouch to my tissue copy of The Stand:DSC_0380.JPGDSC_0381.JPGDSC_0382.JPG

    Noticed an interesting difference today in the two Revival art portfolios I received.

    The first one I received has a nice little remarque with the artist signature. Thought it was cool but assumed he did it on all the portfolios.

    I realized the second portfolio I received did not contain the remarque. Now I am left to wonder how many have this and are there other drawings.

I do think the endpaper design is cool. Thanks for taking the bullet for us on this purchase. I was tempted to buy it myself. Now I won't.

    Also, I kept picturing Brian James Freeman handing you your CDCC Card and telling you "You are number Two."
    And you replying,"I am not a number! I am a FREE MAN!"
    And then BJF saying, "No, dude, I am Freeman . . ."

    I purchased a copy from B&N as well and agree the binding wouldn't "stand" up for long. Just a display piece for me so no worries there.

    I’ve been wondering about this edition...nice to see some shots of it. Not sure I need to add this to the collection, especially given your comments on it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not curiously tempted...

    And yes, the paper is thin enough you can easily read the text on the other side in any white space, including the art.

    So I am perusing eBay for no good reason and I notice someone selling a new version of The Stand with the Wrightson illustrations. It looks a lot like the leather-ish volumes from Barnes and Noble and sure enough it is from them. These are books I do not generally pay much attention to but I decide to go for this one, I actually need a reading copy. The cover and endpapers are cool. The book was shrink wrapped and has a very strong chemical smell. I will leave it out a few days before it goes into a closed bookcase. The paper is about a half a step above tissue and I actually question if the binding would survive a full read. Part of me thinks this is a cool book to own and part of me thinks I will not buy another Barnes and Noble Leather-ish book again.

    I believe I only have the lettered one so far. My numbered copy will be a PC I assume as part of my Patreon level.
