I've always been curious exactly what was added, but never had the time to sit down and put each book side by side to document the changes. I don't know any edition that has tried.
I've always thought that would be a neat idea, too.

Of course, you are in the unique position to bring that idea to fruition ;)

This is an out of the park idea.....I see why you get the big bucks!

If not red perhaps use a bold or italic font? It would keep costs down and may flow better. Maybe red for the lettered edition and bold for the gift and numbered?

I love it!

Great idea. I believe I have a copy of The Neverending Story, which is printed in two colors. One color is the story of the main character, and when he reads the large book in the story, the actual story itself is printed in another color. Pretty cool read with this printing. It would be great to see this again. Maybe Brian at CD can use his powers to make this happen!!!

Small production update/plan change for Carrie I wanted to note. At today's production meeting, we decided to go with full color illustrated endpapers for the Numbered Artist Edition. They'll look really sharp with the cover artwork for the AE, which we've now seen a preliminary version of and think our collectors will really like. We'll post the AE cover artwork once we have the final version all designed, so probably in two or three weeks.

It should be pointed out that even though the advertisement says, "originally published by Doubleday back in the 1970s and early 1980s", The Stand will be the "Complete and Ucut" version from 1990.

So its not the original Stand.

Awesome.

And I hear you are going with a "no text" approach for the front cover?
