That is why I asked you because you have great visual eye !

@nefilim is going to HATE me!!!!!! "Evil grin" The film aside, the book released featuring the art is a beautiful work in it's own right, featuring a huge amount of illustrations and art from many different artists, it truly is a beautiful book and if you were lucky enough to get one in the original white slip, worth an absolute fortune!

Also in my collection is The Art Of Derek Riggs, for anyone interested in Iron Maiden this is a MUST have and feature art never shown before. I LOVE the original work he did for Maiden and Killers is still my all-time favourite album cover.

I do buy a lot of books, mainly hardcover first editions as I read a couple a week, but art books I don't really have many, I have Various Art of Star Wars books and the above but thats about it. I do however own a book I consider beautiful which is not an art book and has been passed down through 3 generations to me on my father side and its in mint condition, unfortunately its not kept in the house so I can't take a quick pic of it, its securely housed elsewhere for safety. I own a first edition of Stokers Dracula, signed by Stoker. It's my most prized possession for obvious reasons, and to see it in the flesh is gorgeous. The binding of books back then was far superior to the books today.

I will endeavour to take a pic when I can as I know @nefilim will be curious to see what it looks like

....and Lord Byrons unreleased poems are included.

I have most of Clive Barkers in first editions, but the ones I kick myself over are the Potter books. I could have bought them at the time and didn't and due to the small print runs the first editions now go for well over £2000 each with the first book going for over £10,000 recently at Sotherbys

The only books I tend to buy these days are usually to do with my second obsession after collecting Steelbook editions of great movies , and that subject is Joy Division , New Order and Factory records , over the years I have amassed quite a large collection of First Edition Hardback issues .The first book I purchased was a signed Ltd ed from early 80's An Ideal For Living numbered and signed by the author

My most prized editions are of From Heaven toHeaven : New Order Live The Early Years by Dec Hickey I have #21 / 100 of the original private publishing and also #21 / 750 of the original slightly smaller second edition

I yeah I know about the protitues. Haven't read the book either. It's not translated.

Do you remember where you ordered it from ? Have you had it long - I mean is it quality stuff ? I love it how it looks. Would fit our bedroom perfectly. And if missus don't like she can sleep elsewhere. LOL.
