Hello Everyone,

While I have been following 'The Collector' for a few years, this is my first post.

In 30 years of reading SK I never ran into one like this. Yesterday I spent 15 minutes trying to find Scribner's email address....but that must be top secret.

Have you seen a copy like this or any ideas?

Thanks from a new member,
Foster

I would say it's an ARC. Are you interested in selling it?

Hi John,

I have a couple of ARCs and they state clearly: Advance Readers Copy....Not For Sale. This doesn't.

I couldn't guess what would be a fair price, so I am going to hang on to it.

Thanks,
Foster

That looks exactly like the ones I printed out and sold years ago.

You may have printed and sold these, wow. Why...because the larger font makes it easier to read? Do you recall how many you put together?

I have a background in the printing industry and know what would have been involved. Unless it was a proof or ARC it just seems like an odd thing to print. But if you sold out, there was a demand.

I printed them out on the office colour laser printer and then ring bound them. I cost me nothing except my time. They are A4 size because I'm in the UK.

In case you were wondering I bought it in New York City.

Ok,
I am very curious to know how long ago you made these, how many and how much you we're selling them at the time? How much would it be worth today?

Rabbit- Did you really print these up? Because, at first, I thought you were ribbing the poster.

Yes, I printed 10 I think. The date would be around 2005. I cannot remember what I sold them for, but it would be less than £10.
