THE EYES OF THE DRAGON
This custom rebound edition of The Eyes of the Dragon uses the page block from an original Viking Trade First Edition Hardback.
Two binding styles were made and all are signed on the title page by artist David Palladini.
This book is a full leather binding. The leather is a cowhide that is dyed and engraved with a reptilian pattern.
This book is a full leather binding. The leather on the spine is red goatskin, and the leather on the boards is genuine caiman skin.
The page edges have been cleaned and the book boards are sanded at the edges to create an elegant bevel. The endsheets are hand marbled by the bookbinder into a flame pattern. The spine is rounded and with the addition of a hollow back and shoulders fitting behind the book boards, shelf wear and the sagging of the text block over time will be prevented. The spine is tooled in gold with raised bands and a sculpted headcap that crowns the woven silk headbands. The book is housed in a custom linen cloth slipcase.
From the publisher
In addition to these original drawings, the book includes a signed limited edition museum grade giclée print of the original cover art, printed on fine art textured paper. This print was created exclusively for this edition.
Quarter Bound in Leather - The spine of the book is bound in leather using a Nigerian goatskin. The spine has raised bands and gold tooling as well as woven silk headbands.
Italian Hand Marbled Endpapers.
Made by Hand -
"Part of the motivation behind these projects is that I have an opportunity to spotlight various artisans who have dedicated their lives to refining and perfecting their craft.
In a world dominated by millions of manufactured objects, it is very fulfilling to surround yourself with people who make beautiful things by hand. In working on these projects, I have been inspired by the artists, bookbinders and in this case, a master woodworker. I love the authenticity of this process, and how these boards began as wood logs and went through numerous stages including sawing, splitting, hand planing and shaping to create the beautiful wood boards that will grace this custom bound edition."

Signed Lettered Edition "P"
Personally signed by Bob Giusti directly onto the colophon page
This custom-bound edition of IT by Stephen King uses the page block from an original Viking Trade First Edition Hardback.
The book is bound by Erin Fletcher at her studio in Boston, Massachusetts, as a semi-split board sewn over frayable tapes to prevent sagging of the heavy page block. The boards are covered in black buffalo skin with goatskin onlays in red, white and yellow for the balloons on the cover, and the title on the spine. The balloon strings are hand-embroidered in cotton floss. The author name is blind-stamped on the spine. Endbands are leather wrapped in red goatskin. The marbled endpapers are a custom design and handmade by Sevim Surucu at her studio in Chicago, Illinois.
The book is signed on the colophon page by Bob Giusti, and includes a giclée print of the original cover art, also signed by Bob Giusti, as well as a reproduction of Bob’s original sketch concept. The book is housed in a custom Cold Rolled Steel case, which is handcrafted by Alisa Toninato at her studio in Madison, Wisconsin. The box cover is a scaled down sewer grate, made from cast iron, poured into a custom sand mold, which rests on fabric panels inside the box, revealing the leather book below. The book is seated in a red suede-lined book bed. A clear sheet of acid free transparent film is placed on top of the book, to protect the leather.

THE DARK HALF
This custom-bound edition of The Dark Half by Stephen King uses the page block from an original Viking trade first edition hardback.
The book is hand-sewn and bound in quarter leather with a white and black foil stamped cover and spine. The front and back boards are covered in black and white European cloth. Half of the books are bound in black leather and half in white leather. Endpapers are silkscreened in India on a navy cotton base paper. The book is housed in a custom handmade cigar-style box covered in black Quartzite slate from Italy, and lined with black velvet.
Quarter Leather Binding- The book is presented in two binding states. Both are quarter bound in leather, with one version bound in black leather, and another in white. Half of the run is white, and half black. When ordering, you can select your preferred color (while supplies last.) The front panels and spine are foil stamped.
Slate Covered Box- We have sourced this incredible Quartzite slate material from Italy, and it will be used to cover the custom box which will house this beautifully bound book. Made to look like George Stark’s gravestone, it is the perfect covering material for this edition. It ain’t cheap, but hey, we want the best for our rebound books!
Limited Edition Letterpress Print Bonus- Included with ALL orders is this special limited edition print of the bird engravings by Lars Hokanson. This is letterpress printed on a beautiful 300 gsm Somerset Velvet cotton paper, with a deckled lower edge. Each print is numbered by hand.
