Spectral Collected Chapbooks I – VIII: Special Edition

Spectral slipcases

We decided in our infinite wisdom to put this very special edition on pre-order this afternoon, so those who are interested can secure their copies of this EXTREMELY LIMITED set as soon as possible. There are ONLY TEN of these available. So, here’s what you get:

All EIGHT chapbooks presented in their original formats from the first two years, signed by their respective authors, protected in a custom-made slipcase covered in red Wibalin cloth and gold-foil stamped on the spine with the Spectral logo (see above). Additionally, all sets will have matching numbered books and a little insert to which set you have. Topping it all off the whole set will have a removeable paper obi-strip to help keep the chapbooks from falling out, each one with the individual number of the set on it. It will be published in September 2013. Remember, there are ONLY TEN sets available – so secure your set NOW!

SOLD OUT! NO SETS LEFT!

Chapbook slipcases: an update

Spectral slipcases

Monday morning and the beginning of a new month (and almost a new season, too!), and what better way of celebrating it than showing you some photos of the Spectral chapbook slipcases. These sturdy protective boxes will do a fine job of keeping those slim volumes in pristine condition over the years. They are covered in black Wibalin buckram and have the logo and name silver-foil-stamped on the spine. Each slipcase holds EIGHT issues very snugly, and will look absolutely wonderful on your bookshelf.

PLEASE NOTE: the red slipcases with gold foil blocking on the spine are NOT available just yet – they will form the VERY limited edition of TEN boxsets of the first eight chapbooks to be released later this year in celebration of the publication of the first volume of the Collected Spectral Chapbooks, provisionally slated for September. ONLY the BLACK variety are available at present.
