    I am supremely jealous of all those who own this amazing looking book. Unfortunately just could not afford the $$. I will continue to look and drool.

    I now own the slipcased and traycased versions and they both are bloody brilliant, can't say enough about the quality of them

    WOW. Simply.....WOW. As much as I read(as we all do!) I cant find the proper words to describe this. I've only had the chance to flip through it and am already in complete awe....

    Thom, you're right!
    I'll get to it in a few weeks time, once I've returned from my US trip.

    I will.
    But, I don't really have an eye for this sort of thing.
    I mean, should I use a mat? Or just frame it?
    Suggestions anyone??

    Definately use a mat, imo i think it really lets the piece stand out like my girlfriend did for my Desperation sketch ...


    And if you can go for the more expensive glass that doesn't reflect the light so much, i wish i had doen so for some of the older pieces i have framed because with the 2 that i have used the better glass for it makes such a difference! When i get the internet up and running thurs i will start my own collection thread!

    Looking forward to it.

    Thanks for your suggestions - I will definitely use the more expensive, non-reflective glass.
    Plus a mat.

    Love your Desperation sketch!

    I second all of that! The sketch is great and the extra money for the non-reflective glass is well worth it.

    This is quite neat.
    KNOWING DARKNESS, is a MUST have for all fans of Stephen King. A really massive book though !
