    Well this one gave me a scare. The package arrived covered in black grease, smelling of petroleum and scraped up from being dragged on the ground for a while. Fortunately the the book was packed well enough to still be pristine under the grease paint exterior.

    This book is beautiful and massive! Can't wait for the next Books to Benefit selection.

    Received the lettered edition of Ray Garton's The Loveliest Dead:

    This is a beautiful book. A high quality Leather cover with raised hubs on the spine, stunning marbled endpapers and gold gilding on the edges.

    P1320721.jpgP1320722.jpgP1320723.jpgP1320724.jpgP1320725.jpgP1320726.jpg

    I am still undecided on how I like the changes for the lettered editions. I fully understand the reasons behind the changes and I appreciate the quality elements added to the books. It just bugs e to have a book of this quality without a traycase. With that said I love this book!

    I hear ya Martin, but to me it's a fair trade. I actually think I prefer the look of the new books to the added traycase. It would be cool to have some after market CD slip or traycases made up for these books later perhaps. For example though Easton make top notch books all the time, and very few actually come with a slipcase. I do think it's a better idea as far as making deadlines that's for damn sure!

    I agree it is a fair trade. The book quality is fantastic and relieving the lettered backlog works on so many levels. I think more people are probably please with this then not. I am an extremely patient person so the extended wait on the books has never been a problem, I ordered this one in 2006, but for many customers it was an issue. Ialso am sure it creates both logistical nightmares as well as customer service issues for the good folks at Cemetery Dance. I am not a bigg lettered edition buyer anyways, I have maybe a half dozen in my collection.

    I'm glad you guys like the design. It actually gets even better the new the book was designed, as part way through getting these created we though of some minor things that really spice up the look of these lettered editions. Overall I think the change will work out better for everyone in the end. Personally I'd much rather have this style of lettered edition on my bookshelf than the old style, but then again I've always wanted Easton Press books and have never been able to afford them.

    With the leather spine, and raised hubs, it definitely has a bit of an Easton look. I think even better though, more identity to each book. Different Eastons often have very similar designs.

    I think the ones that really shine in this big batch are Pure and Fangoria. They've fell late enough that they where after we made some minor tweaks to the over all design of these. I think there may have been pictures in the update Brian posted the other week, but I can always take some photos and post them somewhere if you guys haven't seen them. Fangoria has got to be my favorite.

    He posted a picture, but if you want to snap a couple more I'd be glad to check it out! It's a fantastic book all around, picked up the s/l copy, after seeing these new editions I kind of wish I'd splurged on the lettered though (assuming I could afford it at the time, which I probably couldn't lol).

    The only picture I saw only showed the spines, I would love some additional pictures. I am really jonesing to see what the Lettered Century's Best turned out like, hint, hint!

    I can probably grab some pictures of that one as well. Though Centuries Best is the older style with the traycase. I'll see what I can do today.
