Managed to snag a King signed 1/26 copy:

Woohoo!

I believe you will find that you have 1/52 not 1/26.

True. But my letter is "E". I only buy single lettered editions for my collection.

EXCITING ADDITION TO THE LETTERED EDITION OF FRANK DARABONT'S HOPE AND MIRACLES

In a recent newsletter we gave you a look at the lettered edition traycase for HOPE AND MIRACLES. A customer suggested that we add a hammer to the top of the traycase, similar to the one used by Tim Robbins' character "Andy Dufresne" in The Shawshank Redemption. We lucked out and were able to get wood from the tree that was in the film!

The tree fell down several years ago (see photos below) and items were made and sold from the wood of the tree. There is enough wood left for the hammers we wanted (see photo to the left). They will be inserted into the spine of the traycase so no one can accidentally knock it off.

We’ll be adding a carved in letter to each (A-Z, AA-ZZ) so each will be unique. The letters are fire etched into the wood.

This, plus the remarques by Francois Villancourt makes the Platinum edition of the book a one-of-a-kind collectible (signed by among others, Stephen King and Tom Hanks).

That is an interesting tie-in item. Thank you for sharing a photo.

What do you think of the book itself?

Not had any time to look at the book yet. I believe there are lots of extras from Frank Darabont.
