    Then an autographed copy (no tip-in sheets)

    I honestly don't know which Bush signed this. Their sigs look a lot alike. I'm still trying to find out.

    They have (very slightly) different dust jackets; I'm not sure if the interior text has a similar difference.

    The eighth line of white text; one DJ says "Barnes & Noble" while the other says "bookstore."

    These books are being sold on various sights as "signed by President George W. Bush." So, I guess it's signed by the author AND artist!

    Another Easton Press book I've added to my collection: The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

    TNOTR1.jpgTNOTR2.jpg

    #5 on my favorite books list.

    TNOTR3.jpg

    Frontispiece. No artist atribution in the book, but I contacted EP and they sad it was Larry Schwinger. His work was on the cover of the original US paperback of The Belgariad series by David Eddings and the US HC of Belgareth the Sorcerer. He is also a children's book illustator.

    That's a nice looking copy of The Name of the Rose. Tried reading that before . Couldn't get into it. One of those I need to try to read again.

    In his Postscript, Eco says the first 100 pages are purposefully difficult to get through. Kind of like taking on the monastic lifestyle. It's tough at first, not many people make through, but utlimately rewarding. Which made him tremendously satisfied when his book became an international bestseller.

    Fantastic looking Easton book!!!!! I too have thought about trying to track down a copy of that title one day.

    The 2 CD books are nice looking too. I had Language of Fear on order, but cancelled it for another title, after hearing many mixed reviews.
