Re: Tales from the Perilous Realm Deluxe

There will be no real difference between the signed and the normal deluxe edition. This is just the first 500 copies printed. It would be terribly expensive to change a lot. I believe it was a fine ID to give it a different ISBN, however who will remember in a few years from now.

I can easily buy a batch of normal deluxe editions have them signed and then sell them as 'one of the 500'; i would not of course, but it is possible.

So we should indeed mention the different ISBN "everywhere" and make it a trade mark, in such that people know they have to ask about the ISBN. But then again, people will want to buy signed copies, even if they have a different ISBN.

My biggest problem is being that Alan Lee does a lot of 'bulk' signings, for book stores like 'books of wonder', 'adc books',... and then also a lot of general signing events all across the globe. In the end his signature will be so 'easily' obtained that there is no particular value in it anymore.
