I have to say, the LEC illustrations never appealed to me. The EP illustration sure do, but at $400... :(
You're close. The first artist-signed DLE that I remember was Hound of the Baskervilles, and it is still for sale at $267. Each succeeding issue in the series has been a little more expensive, and I don't know if any of them have sold out. Hound is 260 pages and Metamorphosis is 160. I would not expect any of them to do well in the secondary market, so it might be worth the wait (but it might be a long one).
Thanks for the history. They are probably all nice productions (assuming you like the illustrations), but the prices are becoming a significant deterrent.
Äänestys: Do you plan, or are you considering purchasing this?
Honestly EP needs to come out with a knockout DLE similar to what Folio had with Mort. Fair pricing with low limitation. These DLE's they're coming out with I don't see selling out in years!
Completely agree - looks gorgeous but the price is too high....
I never realized it had such colorful, awesome illustrations (by modern artist Brian Despain). So, I placed an order.
Today, Dec 17, is the last day of free expedited shipping for Christmas, so that was a nice little shipping bonus.
I know it's really too expensive but I can't help but think a beautifully illustrated DLE like this is going to increase in value over the next few years once it sells out.
(Or that's my DLE addiction trying to justify things to my wallet.)
