Graveyard Book

Graveyard Book

Illustration By Dave McKean

Illustrated by Dave McKean.

"The boundaries are always there—between the graveyard and the world beyond, between life and death, and the crossing of them."
-- Neil Gaiman

Please note: These last two copies of The Graveyard Book do not have slipcases.

Hear this tragic tale: a sleeping family, a talented murderer, and an adventurous toddler -- orphaned, but not assassinated. Small and alone, by accident and luck he escapes the scene of the crime and climbs a grassy hill to safety. At the top of the hill the boy finds a fence, and on the other side, a dark, quiet place.

And what is to become of him?

Subterranean Press is proud to present the Limited Edition of Neil Gaiman's new novel, a masterwork that will appeal to both children and adults. We're still working with artist Dave McKean on the specifics, but we can tell you our edition will be larger than the trade hardcover, printed on Mohawk Superfine, bound with an Iris cloth spine and marbled papers over the boards, with premium endsheets.

We've just heard from Dave McKean, who is at work designing our editon, which will include the following exclusive features:

– New and very different design from the Harpers and Bloomsbury editions;
– New illustrations (probably 4 or 5);
– New photographic sections adding atmosphere under the title pages at the beginning, and under the Interlude chapter;
– Use of two colour and duotone throughout;
– Full colour section at the end, with alternate covers, roughs and sketches.

Limited: 500 numbered copies, bound in cloth and marbled paper, slipcased, signed by author and artist.

Lettered: 26 copies, signed by author and artist, hand bound in the finest materials, with an original remarque by Dave McKean in each copy, housed in a custom traycase.

Please note: As an added assurance to Neil and Dave's many fans, we will be holding all monies collected for preorders of The Graveyard Book in an escrow account. Please note that this title is not eligible for any specials, coupons, savings certificates, or special offers.
