Traycase Idea

Post by e_taylor » Wed Mar 25, 2009 7:20 am

From an email I sent Tomas, in regards to tray cases for the Bachman paperbacks:
In my mind I'm picturing individual tray cases for each book (I've seen generic ones to hold all four, but that doesn't accommodate people who wish to shelve their books in order of release, or by title). Also, these tray cases could be the size of a hardback book so as to allow uniformity of all King titles on a shelf. When opened the cases would have a spot cut out to place the book in. Using elements from the Stand traycase, it could close with magnets, and have an opening to view the full cover artwork (it would need some type of plastic insert to keep the book inside the case). Then add some foil stamping on the side to give the title and Bachman's name (it wouldn't seem right to put King's name on the case for a book that had no mention of him), and you've got a very nice way of protecting, displaying, and "spicing up" some important but relatively unimpressive (looks wise) early King work.

What are everybody's thoughts on such tray cases?

Sounds like a good idea, although the only Bachman paperback I have is The Running Man.

For selfish reasons, I'd love to see a traycase for the 1st Edition of Salem's Lot, the same design as the one for The Stand.
