    More awesome books. I dig the burnt look of the traycase for Firestarter.

    There is actually quite a story behind that case. It's a one of a kind and the entire story is well documented in my thread over at TDT.Org if you're curious. I'm very good friends with the case maker, Dick Olson

    A little something different....


















    Custom wooden case, the imperfections in the wood were intentional to "distress" the case a bit and make it look older. If I recall (I'd have to check my notes, but its old and in wonderful condition) 15th UK edition of The Hobbit. I have LOTR as well, but timeline wise I bought the collectible editions before having the custom cases built so I have to search a bit to round all the pics up for one post.

    Ah, after al little looking I found some "after" pics once it was all assembled together.









    LOTR, US 16th printing. Also in excellent shape. Damn, it seems as if "Imageschack" has lost some of my older pics!!! What a PITA!!!

    There is a little more continuity in "My Collection" thread at TDT.Org as a lot of my books were "upgraded" with art later. If you are interested the link is listed in my signature. I'll do my best to consolidate them for here though. Let me know if I should keep going, or if its "enough" already. LOL I am still a newb when it comes to the protocols on these boards and don't want to seem like an ass.

    Great stuff. I really love the LOTR stuff. I wish I had the money to get some good collectible versions of those. Or even the Easton Press collection.
