OK this is just not a book. This is the most awesome, truly collectible Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie book. If you don't know Alan Moore, he is the author of V for Vendetta. I collect his works as they are not only good fiction reads but also has beautiful illustrations. This is not a children's book. This is for adults only and is risque. You can reserve your copy here right now on my blog. It will ship to you when it is released.
I believe I can get a bump up in allocation if I get enough orders. As usual, GoodStorm will not charge your credit card until it ships. We will however get pre-authorization on your card.
Ok, here's a little more background on "Lost Girls". This has been 16 years in development, the complete LOST GIRLS by Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie has finally shipped to the printer, and will be hitting stores in August!
This will be the most expensive book Top Shelf has ever published, with the first printing costing almost $200K. Why so expensive? Because Lost Girls will be published as three, 112-page, super-deluxe, oversized (9" x 12") clothbound hardcover volumes, each wrapped in a beautiful dust jacket, with all three volumes sealed and shrink-wrapped in a gorgeous slipcase. The entire epic published -- all at once -- as an art object for the ages.
And to help raise the money to pay for this print run, we've decided to offer a Signed & Numbered edition, limited to 500 copies, that will be autographed by both Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie. This is a Top Shelf website exclusive, and the money raised through this advance sale will allow Alan Moore to finance the project.
Advance orders of this special edition will ship out as soon as they arrive from the printer. But please note that this special edition will likely sell out before the summer release date, and quite possibly within days of this announcement, so pre-ordering is highly recommended.
To see what the slipcase and volumes will look like, click on either edition below and then click on PREVIEW.
