    Time for an update on a few new receipts.
    Found myself near the Beaverton Powell's and need some Brodart so I stopped in. They were only allowing a few in at a time which resulted in a wait to get in but shopping the store was very comfortable. Encountered some books that had been defaced by a local author so I took one off their hands.

    This was an unexpected gift from a member here. I am very intrigued by this and look forward to checking it out soon:

    This one probably has the wrong title. It should be Trump: In His Own Words as probably 2/3 of the book are directly quoting interviews with Trump:

    An informative work from Woodward but he does state his personal feelings in the afterword, which he probably should not have done.

    The more I look at it, the more I like it. Will probably keep it in the frame but am not sure about placement in the house though.

    I had actually heard good things about the Barnes and Noble editions and it was only $25.00. I think I understand now why the store copies are always shrink wrapped.

    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...
