This Week’s Question
Is there a hard-to-find first-edition that you would love to own? If so, why? (Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
My literal answer to this answer is “No.” However, expanding the scope a bit, I would love to have first editions of the A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES original hardbacks. However, I found the original hardback covers on eBay over time for prices I was willing to pay. They’re not first editions, but I’m ok with that. Now, what I’d really love is the dust jackets designed by Elithien Art for the series. I believe Illumicrate subscribers were the lucky ones to get their hands on these some time ago. They are absolutely stunning but incredibly expensive to purchase secondhand. I often see them listed for $700+ on resale sites. I don’t really yearn for a lot of special edition books or bookish items, but these dust jackets are some of the few items I’d really love to have.
