Lividian Publications is pleased to present the signed and slipcased hardcover Limited Edition of Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill, which has been designed as a companion volume to the special edition of 20th Century Ghosts.
This deluxe edition includes a brand-new foreword by Josh Malerman, an introduction by Joe Hill that has only previously appeared in the UK, bonus features such as “Jude Confronts Global Warming” and the “lost” first chapter of the novel, along with “Traveling the Night Road with Joe Hill: On Heart-Shaped Box” by Mathias Clasen, the acclaimed Danish scholar of horror fiction and an associate professor in literature and media at Aarhus University.
In addition, this gorgeous volume will feature an incredible nineteen full-color illustrations by François Vaillancourt, printed on an acid-free glossy stock to retain the richness of the artwork and tipped into the book.
To ensure this special edition lasts for generations of readers, the slipcase will be produced using the new, heavier boards introduced to the Lividian line-up with The Night Country.
The Lividian Publications special edition of Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill is already rolling at the printer and will be published in the first quarter of 2022.
