>What I would love to happen, is for all the avid collectors to get their copies, and then HC announce that they decided to cut production to 250, instead of 500 copies.

The idea of printing 500 copies still seems a bit bizarre for this title. I would have thought 150 would have been plenty given the economic climate and the non-ME nature of the material. I guess they must be able to make a good enough margin selling a proportion of them , even if they have to sell the remainder in bulk a few years down the line. I'd love to know the real cost of production; The page block obviously costs next to nothing, but I haven't a clue about the rest of the cost. The quality is higher (and no there is the traycase to consider), but the Easton Press seem to be able to mass produce quite reasonable leather bindings at a remarkably low retail price, so I suspect the cost is lower than one might suspect.
