Here are some photos of the Deluxe Limited Edition and the Deluxe Lettered Edition of The Dark Man by Stephen King, published by Cemetery Dance Publications. Each copy of the Lettered Edition includes a hand-drawn Dark Man illustration by Glenn Chadbourne that was tipped into the front of the book. You can see some samples in this post. In addition, you can watch a very short video demonstrating how the Lettered Edition box opens in this post.
This is Glenn Chadbourne’s painting of “Night Surf” by Stephen King from a promotion Cemetery Dance Publications offered a few years ago:
The Cemetery Dance Publications special editions of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King sold out in record time, but there was an unannounced special feature for the Gift Edition we were saving as a surprise. Word got around about it, though, so I’m pleased to show a sneak preview of Glenn Chadbourne’s paintings for the endpapers of the Gift Edition. There are no spoilers in these images, but there are some very neat elements from the story that you’ll recognize as you read it:
We decided to try something a little different for the Deluxe Lettered Edition of The Dark Man by Stephen King. Each copy of the Lettered Edition from Cemetery Dance Publications includes a hand-drawn Dark Man illustration by Glenn Chadbourne that will be tipped into the front of the book.
To make this possible, we printed up special art sheets, sent them to Glenn in Maine, who spent about two weeks illustrating them, and then he sent them back. Now they’re with the printer, who will be carefully placing one in each copy of the Lettered Edition to make that copy unique.
I thought some of our collectors might like to see a few of the drawings so I scanned a couple of pages before they left the office.
As many of you know, this fall Cemetery Dance Publications will be publishing a special edition of Stephen King’s new novel, Doctor Sleep, which is a follow-up to The Shining. Here is a preview of the color artwork Vincent Chong has created for the Cemetery Dance edition of this very special book:
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Erin S. Wells on several projects now, including It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition by Stephen King and my Dueling Minds anthology among others. Several collectors hired her to remarque their copies of It and she was kind enough to let me share a few samples here on the blog. (A remarque is an original drawing created by an artist directly in the book.)
IDW Publishing’s signed Limited Edition of Zombies vs. Robots: This Means War! is getting very close to completion. This special edition is signed by Jesse Bullington, Nancy A. Collins, Lincoln Crisler, Brea Grant, Nicholas Kaufmann, Joe McKinney, James A. Moore, Yvonne Navarro, Norman Prentiss, Rachel Swirsky, Sean Taylor, Steve Rasnic Tem, with ZvR co-creator Chris Ryall and editor Jeff Conner. You can place your order on the Cemetery Dance website.
Here are some quick photos of the first copy of the Limited Edition that IDW sent our way:
