Looks interesting

Interesting that they haven't posted any of the illustrations yet. I know they probably will, but as one of the main selling points for this book, you would think that would be a priority for them.

>3 hamletscamaro: Here in mid January, STILL no images of the illustrations. VERY strange--Are they hiding something?

>5 Frank_Zwolinski:

Probably not. It’s most likely a result of having a disjoint supply chain. Whomever they’ve hired to actually make the books promised or is under contract to deliver the first batch of books by a certain date, so EP props up a skeleton webpage for the item to collect presale orders. The disjointedness, I suspect, is due to the lack of finished products to send to a photography company to create the webpage photos and mail flyers. They won’t have that stuff until at least the first final prototype is made, and at most by the time the first batch is delivered.

We’ve seen EP try to use product sketches or halfway photos before, when waiting for the binder to ship out a first batch. And along with those preview photos, we’ve seen complaints here about how the photos don’t look right or that they show a slipcase when there ultimately isn’t one (or vice versa). Incorrect preview photos probably represent design change occurrences or best guesses of what the final product will include (e.g., slipcases are cheap and the binder may even have matching spares laying around).

Illustrations look good, I just quickly went through my book and there are around 18+ illustrations, black and white, whole page illustrations.....and yes, it does have a slipcase ;)

Hi everyone,

I've wanted this book for a while but didn't have the fund when the book was released. However, I found the book for sale at a discounted price on a site called Etsy. The book goes for almost 400 on Ebay and this seller has it for half price at 200 something. Does anyone here have experience using this site? I hoped to consult with other collectors about whether they've used Etsy before I purchase this, and I haven't found any other website except for this site LibraryThing. Any advice would be much appreciated! Here's the website, in case you need a reference:

>8 Megan_Ph: I have used Etsy to purchase a couple of Easton Press volumes I was having trouble finding. And I did purchase one on Etsy that was surprisingly cheaper than what was available on eBay. So deals on EP volumes can be found on Etsy but it seems to be very random. I find that usually Etsy advertises their EP books for more. So it just depends. I can say that my purchasing experience on Etsy has been good. The vendors I dealt with were very responsive to my questions.
