    TJCams - please post, love looking at others collections. Taking the photo's is the hardest part, posting them is a breeze.

    Thanks to everyone for their interest, and for the welcome.

    I have a few more overall pic's, then I'll get into some individual books.

    Lincoln.

    Pete, most of my dustjackets are in 'Brodart' dj protectors, the pre-cut ones, 10" high. I also tried a different brand that comes as a roll and you cut to length. These ones look fine, but the clear film is a lot thicker than the Brodart. It's amazing how much the thicker film bulks up the book.

    How long did it take to gather up this collection, and have you read most/all of them?

    TJ, I've been collecting for about 18 years - but have been very stop/start. Lots of things have come up that have put a hold on my collecting - moving interstate, getting married, buying/renovating a house, having a child, etc, etc. I always return to it though. I started off with wanting nice editions of my favourite books - King, Barker, Campbell - then I read 'The Stephen King Companion'. It had a heap of info about signed/ltd and 1st editions, and who published and sold them. I was hooked. But, living in Australia meant writing letters to booksellers, then waiting to hear back from them. Buying books I had to get an international money order, post it, then wait for the parcel to arrive. Much easier these days, but damn I miss the 'good old days'!
    And no, I'm nowhere near reading them all.
    Lincoln.

    Love all the Herberts, especially that edition of The Fog!

    I've been meaning to start getting all of mine covered for a while now. Guess i should look into picking up some Broadart covers...

    It's not such a bad job, Pete. Surprising how many you can get done in an hour or so. I'm sure I've seen a jig somewhere that holds the d/jacket and helps to fold and align it with the cover. Might have been a 'Gaylord' product.

    I use Broadart, primarily because they are easy to get since Powell's carry's them. I would probably go with Gaylord if they were readily available.

    Love what you are showing as well!
