Dragon Rebound Editions announces the fifth book, Cujo in their series of custom bound novels by Stephen King. For those unfamiliar with these books, Dragon Rebound acquires 1st edition copies, and then work with bookbinders and other artisans to rebind the original book block. By incorporating elements of the story into the design of the binding they hope to create a unique experience. It’s their way of honoring the work of Stephen King, and crafting a cover design that collectors and fans can cherish.
Quarter Leather Binding
The Cujo rebound is a quarter leather binding with printed paper boards which have a soft velour-type feel. A custom handmade dog collar is riveted to the cover, and it includes a dog tag with the title and author name engraved on the surface. Endsheets are handmade paste papers, and the book is housed in a clamshell box featuring a rubber “doggie door” on the front, revealing the book below when lifted.
Doggie Door Clamshell Box
So what’s the best way to house a custom bound edition of Cujo? Well, in a clamshell box that features a rubber doggie door of course! Lifting the flap will reveal the book below, which is removed by opening the box just like any other clamshell enclosure.
Artist Steven Stroud is no stranger to these editions. He illustrated the dust jackets for both Firestarter and Cujo. We consider this rebound edition to be a companion piece to Firestarter. Steven has created an original drawing of Cujo as a cute puppy, which will be bound into each copy, and he has also signed a 6″ x 9″ print of the Cujo cover.
Doggie Bone Stress Ball
All orders will ship with this limited edition promotional item, a custom-printed doggie bone stress ball!
