For those unfamiliar with Dragon Rebound Editions, they work with hand bookbinders and other artisans to rebind an original first edition Stephen King book block, and then incorporate elements of the story into the design of the binding. It’s their way of paying tribute to the work of Stephen King.
Today, Dragon Rebound Editions announced Stephen King’s The Stand Rebound!
This custom-bound edition of The Stand by Stephen King is hand crafted using the book block from a Doubleday 1st edition originally published in 1978 and is limited to ONLY ten copies, two of which are kept in-house.
Bound in restoration calf and black goatskin by Shepherds Bookbinders in London, this edition features designer endpapers which are hand-painted with spirit dye and acrylics. Headbands are handsewn using silk threads, and the edges are hand painted with acrylics. The cover is hand tooled and finished in white gold leaf. The clamshell enclosure with a rounded spine is covered in black goatskin and lined with suede.
The books will be sold by lottery. To enter the lottery for a chance to purchase a copy of this edition, please submit the form HERE. Only one copy per household. Please only submit the form if you are able and willing to purchase a copy for the issue price of $5,500. Entries are open until 12pm PT on Friday, May 14th, 2021.
