Would you make a Carrie and night shift slip case?

I've been wanting to do more Doubleday cases for a while now. It's just a matter of time both on my end and with the bindery. As you can see from the LATER cases, the turnaround time from start to finish on a single case is around 9 months +

Speaking of. I'm hopeful I'll be able to make a formal pre-order announcement for LATER tomorrow. Just waiting on a couple last bits of info.

Both are amazing, love the red. It really pops out, i ordered the blue one (it looks so cool) because i only own the hardcover but i absolutely love how you incorporated something from both dustjackets in there.

I love the old Roanoke style, this will linger in my head for quite some time. 😉

I mentioned this in the newsletter today, but wanted to put it here as well and expand a little bit.

As expected, interest in the paperback slipcase are less than the hardback slipcase. This makes sense if you think about what editions people are collecting and the price of the case vs value of the book. But it's clear the paperback won't have the sustained interest to keep being made in perpetuity so it's going to be a one time run. I'll have a handful of extras made above the final pre-order count but once they sell out they'll be out of stock permanently.
