Suntup Editions will be offering extremely limit-run editions of Stephen King’s Misery signed by the author himself. The Signed Limited Edition comes in three flavors, here’s a breakdown of the various versions along with prices and descriptions:
The Signed Limited Edition of Misery is published in three states: An Artist Gift edition, a Numbered edition and a Lettered edition. All three oversized editions measure 7.5” x 10.5”, and feature eight new full-color illustrations by Rick Berry, whose critically acclaimed work includes the Donald M. Grant editions of The Talisman and Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub.
Artist Gift Edition ($110)
Signed by Rick Berry, the slipcased Artist Gift edition features a dust jacket with stunning wrap-around artwork by Berry. It is a smyth-sewn binding with full imperial cloth, two-hits stamping on front and spine, and is offset printed on Mohawk Superfine Eggshell paper. The gift edition print run will be determined based on pre-order demand, but is capped and will be very limited for a Stephen King book. Is the only edition of the three with the wrap-around dust jacket art.
Numbered Edition ($525)
The Numbered edition is limited to 200 copies, and is signed by Stephen King and Rick Berry. The first 185 copies are for sale and numbered in black. The remaining 15 copies are numbered in red and reserved for private distribution. It is a full Japanese cloth, smyth-sewn binding featuring a blind stamped front cover, and a leather spine label stamped in gold leaf. The edition is printed letterpress on Cranes Lettra Pearl White cotton paper, and housed in a custom clamshell box.
Lettered Edition ($3,950)
The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies for sale lettered A-Z, and is signed by Stephen King and Rick Berry. It is printed letterpress on moldmade Arches wove paper with a deckled fore edge, and handbound in full crimson goatskin leather. Endpapers are marbled, and made exclusively for this edition. The binding is sewn and rounded with a hollow back designed to prevent sagging fo the page block.
The edition includes an original signed frontispiece print pulled from a wood engraving by renowned illustrator and designer Barry Moser. The print is signed by the artist. The title is made using six original Royal glass typewriter keys which are inset into the cover, and the letter designation is a Royal key inset into the lower back cover.
The book is housed in a custom walnut wood box designed to resemble an original royal Model 10 packing crate, and features a black suede-lined book bed. The box is laser engraved and handcrafted by Dick Olson at his workshop in Farmington, new Mexico.
This beautiful ceramic emperor penguin is included free with all Lettered edition orders, as well as the first 75 orders for either the Artist Gift edition, or the Numbered edition. Made by world-famous Hagen-Renaker, manufacturer of collectible ceramic animal figurines for 70 years, this is the same brand of penguin that appeared in the screen adaptation of Misery.
