Dragon Rebound Editions Announces The Stephen King Cujo Rebound Edition

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.

Steven Stroud

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!

Signed Copies

You may send a signed copy of Cujo to be rebound if you would like. We are not responsible for loss or damage of this book during shipment or at any stage of production. We must receive your signed copy no later than May 10th, 2019.

Bangor Public Library Donation

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this rebound edition will be donated to The Bangor Public Library. The vision of the Library is to contribute to the prosperity and growth of the city of Bangor by fostering the spirit of exploration, the joy of reading, the pursuit of knowledge, and the preservation of its community’s history.

Please note: These editions are first offered to owners of the previous custom bound book, who have right of first refusal on new titles. If a previous owner declines to purchase the new book, or one should become available for some reason, then Dragon Rebound will contact people on the wait list . They are currently not taking any new wait list submissions.

Suntup Editions Announces New Covers Collection Print, Cujo By Steven Stroud

In November 2017, Suntup Editions released the cover art print for Firestarter. Now they are pleased to release another glorious piece of art from Steven Stroud: Cujo, cover art from the 1981 first edition novel by Stephen King.

King once described Cujo as being “like a brick heaved through a window,” and one could easily say the same of Stroud’s snarling depiction here of the titular character. Collectors of Stephen King books will tell you that the mark of a well-preserved first edition of Cujo is how clearly you can see old Cuje as he emerges from the fog. Now, you can see the art as it was originally created, presented here for the first time without text, as a fine art giclée print.

These prints are hand-signed by Steven Stroud, and the first 20 include an original Remarque, two of which are available for purchase at the time of release, so act fast on those.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 signed copies per size, worldwide. For details and order info, click HERE.

Remake of Stephen King’s Cujo Coming To Theaters In 2013

156334_331132650335502_2079422800_n

I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. Hollywood is on a roll with Stephen King’s remakes, first Carrie, a prequel to the Shining, a possible Pet Sematary redo and now Cujo…

Lang Elliott, President & CEO of Sunn Classic Pictures, Inc., announced that Sunn plans to produce the remake of “Cujo” this year representing the 30th Anniversary since Sunn produced and distributed the original “Cujo” motion picture in l983, based upon Stephen King’s novel. The l983 version was highly successful at the worldwide box-office and, compared with today’s inflation and higher ticket prices, the box-office would be well over $225 million even without ancillary sales (i.e., DVD, cable, free television, pay-per-view, etc.).

Cujobook

Cujo is the story of a large, playful St. Bernard dog that is transformed into a hideous killing machine after being infected by rabies. Donna Trenton’s car is on the fritz, and she and her son take her ailing automobile to their mechanic. Upon their arrival, the car stalls and refuses to restart. The mechanic fails to appear so Donna searches for him. The transformed, maniacal “Cujo” reveals himself; he is highly agitated and very aggressive. Donna hardly recognizes this filthy, monstrous creature foaming at the mouth. Suddenly “Cujo” charges Donna, who barely makes it back into the car for protection. Trapped with her son and the windows rolled up, the sweltering heat begins to take its toll. “Cujo’s” powerful state of insanity and violence await.
