    Patrick's Collection

    Hi there,

    I'm Patrick and I'm an addict.

    I try to keep my addiction under control, and sometimes I do well. For a while. Then I let my guard down and the next thing I realize, I've slipped back into it. It's like there's a powerful hook pulling me back.

    My friends are a bunch of enablers and that makes it harder to exercise my willpower. But really, I've got no one to blame but myself. I'm a collector.

    I think I'll start with my Easton Press editions of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.'s books.

    Kurt Vonnegut signed limited edition from Easton Press, GOD BLESS YOU, MR. ROSEWATER.







    Un-numbered. I have no idea how many there are.



    Vonnegut is one of my favorite authors, this is my very first signed book of his.

    LOOK AT THE BIRDIE, by Kurt Vonnegut; Easton Press signed limited First Edition:

    I like the fact that Easton Press has finally started numbering these S/L's. This is #785 of 1000:

    I would show more examples of the interior artwork by the author, but the posting rules only allow four photos.

    Just realized someone posted in here already. Forgot the Australians would be up. Thanks for stopping by already, Grant.

    I figure I'll start out with some standard of organization. Then eventually I'll descend into haphazard, chaotic posting. That'll come later though; for now, here's to high hopes!

    Us night owls are up too, as Mr. Woot can attest. Looks great, Patrick. A fellow Easton Presser! I wish I'd had the mmeans to get the Vonnegut novels, but prioriites ahve to be made. Do you have the slipcased Slaughterhouse Five? Maybe that's a later post. I love EP books, so keep 'em comin'!
