Our First Book: Revival by Stephen King!

I’m very pleased to announce the first official book from LetterPress Publications will be Revival: The Deluxe Special Edition by Stephen King, but I’m offering this title for sale a little differently than you might normally expect from a new publisher.

As my way of saying THANK YOU to all the indie retailers and publishers who have done so much for me over the years, I won’t be taking orders for Revival directly on the LetterPress Publications website, but instead I’m asking collectors and readers to visit the websites of the retailers who are selling this title and place your order with them.

The genre does best when all of our stores and publishers are healthy and thriving, so please consider ordering your copy through one of these links:

Bad Moon Books • Betts Bookstore • Camelot Books • Cemetery Dance Publications • Dark Regions • Gerald Winters and Son • The Overlook Connection Bookstore • PS Publishing (UK & Europe) • Stephen King Catalog • Subterranean Press

I’ll have a lot more information about the book to share, including production updates and some inside looks at the special features, in the weeks and month to come, but in the meantime, here are some of the most important specs for Revival: The Deluxe Special Edition by Stephen King:

The Special Bonus materials will include:
• Sixteen full-color illustrations by François Vaillancourt, including three fold-out illustrations measuring 14 inches by 10 inches
• An introduction by Josh Boone, writer and director of the forthcoming feature film adaptation
• Exclusive artwork created by Vincent Chong for the film development process
• “A Nasty, Dark Piece of Work” by Bev Vincent: an overview of Stephen King’s writing of the novel
• “Stephen King: The Rolling Stone Interview” — an epic twenty page interview with Stephen King originally published on Halloween 2014 by Rolling Stone magazine in celebration of the novel’s publication

The Special Production features will include:
• Deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing
• Printed on a heavy interior specialty acid-free paper stock that is much thicker than the paper in a normal trade edition
• Featuring two colors of hot foil stamping on the front boards and spine
• Smyth sewn to create a more durable binding
• Includes genuine crafted spine hubs in the spine
• Deluxe binding with colored head and tail bands
• High-quality endpapers
• Full-color signature sheets
• Custom-made slipcase wrapped with a woven cloth and stamped with hot foil on the spine
• Extremely collectible print run that will be a tiny fraction of the print run of the original trade hardcover edition from Scribner

François Vaillancourt, Josh Boone, Vincent Chong, and Bev Vincent are currently scheduled to sign the incredibly beautiful signature sheets, which will be printed on June 1st, the day after the print run is set in stone. (More on that in a future update!)

Here is just one sample of François Vaillancourt’s incredible exclusive artwork for the book:
