It definitely would’ve made the price tag a little easier to swallow. The print run confirmation is the only thing keeping me from feeling totally ripped off 😬
The problem is they know there will always be enough fans who will buy it even if it is overpriced

Looks like mine will be here today by 8! :D I'm very excited about the Slipcase Brian from Lividian is going to make. I think that will set off the book very nicely.

Don't tell the guy on ebay who has it listed as "Sold Out" with a slipcase for $500

It looks fantastic, based on his prototype pictures. I am excited as well. It will make it feel like an actual "limited" edition. But of course now we will be into it for closer to $200 when you include shipping and tax on both the book and the slipcase.

Just received my copy of the book.

In my opinion it's junk. Lightweight and underwhelming. The end-papers are nice.

I don't know why I thought they might do a better job this time around. The LEs need to be left to the small shops.

Well I truly hope others enjoy this production of the book more than me. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade.

Going by the posts on here, the slipcase is better than the book! Thanks Brian.

Agreed. Really enjoy the art inside, and I like the feeling of the cover, but yeah, I'm more excited for the slipcase more than anything. Never really did the SE King stuff (All I've got is vol. one of The Secretary of Dreams #) but my buddy has tons of S/L, super-cool SE from the different publishers, and since I've nearing the end of collecting my 1st states, I decided to take a chance. Should have kept saving up for The Cycle of the Werewolf! ;)
