Half a King Limited Edition
Posted on July 4th, 2014 in Uncategorized
Subterranean Press have produced some beautiful editions of my six First Law books already, but they’re cooking up something more than a little bit special for Half a King and its sequels, an oversize 7×10 inch hardcover printed in two colours on 80# Finch (that’s really, really good paper to the layman) and with cover and two full colour internal illustrations by Jon McCoy. Here’s the cover:
Much though I like the graphic covers on the standard UK and US editions, it’s always a thrill to see some quality representative artwork for a book as well. Jon has been a real dream to work with, some fantastic mood, movement and atmosphere in his art and I can tell you the two internal illustrations are just as good.
There are going to be 400 of the numbered hardcover and 52 of a lettered edition leather-bound in a custom tray case, and the plan is to offer a special slipcase for the three books in the trilogy once they’re completed. They’re available for preorder over here, with the typography on the cover just a guide for the time being…
