“Jules Verne's immortal adventure, illustrated and personally signed by S.w. Rand.
The visionary underwater adventure - featuring the brilliant and obsessed Captain Nemo - in a specular illustrated edition, brought to life with eight full-color images by artist S.w. Rand. Each book has been personally signed by S.w. Rand.
Limited to just 1,200 hand-numbered copies.”
I like the art! I will totally be up for this one, assuming they didn't use some crap translation (which is still entirely possible). I'll wait for more info on that before ordering.
Okay, so who's going to call Easton to find out who the translator is and report back? :D
It also doesn't come up in site searches, but I'm getting Facebook ads for the book that click right through to the product page.
Unless there's some purpose to limiting the exposure of the book at this time, it's seemingly just more of EP's crappy web work which is really embarrassing at times.
1. Did you asked why the book is still not showing in the website?
2. As F. P. Walter's translation is a more recent one, never before used by EP, is this DLE a fancy scanned reprint of another publisher's text with a set of new illustrations and artist's signature thrown in?
I think I’m correct in saying that all other books in this series have been reset in order to fit their standard 9x11 format, but there might have been some exceptions.
I asked customer service why their Search button doesn’t find the book and received this reply:
“The book may be already sold out because its not coming up on our website any longer, and there is nothing available at this time.”
Perhaps a different rep might give a different response.
My technical knowledge is somewhere between zero and nil, but I suspect you are right about the glitch. Or perhaps it has been delayed for some reason.
is this a worthwhile purchase? thoughts from experienced EP collectors?
