D-Day

Sorry for the mega post but this is the last chance I'll get till after Con.
So I will be selling my new book "Belle Du Jour" at booth 4800 at the San Diego Comicon from July 25th (preview night) to July 29th. I'll be sharing the booth with my good friends Scott Morse and Jeff Pidgeon.


The book itself measures 8 1/2" x 7" and is 96 pages, full color throughout. Hardcover. It will sell for $25.


I'm also offering a special limited edition that will contain an original piece of artwork attached to the inside front cover as a bookplate (The artwork can be removed without damaging the book or the art with a small amount of effort).
The attached bookplate will look something like this (only signed and numbered)

The special limited edition will sell for $60. The original art book plates will be numbered to 100 (of which I will have 70 with me) Here's the full selection of what will be available.

I'll have a catalog at the table showing all of the available bookplates to choose from. So that you can pick whichever one you like (on a first come first served basis that is).
And lastly, I'll also have the Rex Steele book ($10) and short film dvd ($15) available. Supplies are dwindling however.

Hope to see you in San Diego.

I'm stuck in Brooklyn and can't be at the con. I'm sure everyone else is asking but can I mail order a copy of your book or somesuch? The bookplates are gorgeous of course. You the man!

Great job, I like your book plates, I love them all!
Since I'm living in Spain it will be hard to get one of your special numbers with an original artwork
:-(
but anyway I will try to get one of the normal books.
Congrats for your amazing work and good luck in the comic con.

Hi again!

thanks for you kind explanation in the previous post, Bill.

I, just like santy gutiérrez- live in Spain, so it will be impossible to get one of those fantastic pieces of art. Anyway, I'll try to get one of the books, too, and of course I'll continue to visit your blog to see your lovely work.

Best regards and best of lucks at the con!

Wow, It really looks great! Good luck at the Con!

I have two friends that want the limited edition books with the art plates, but cannot be in attendance so they've asked me to purchase them on their behalf. Will I be able to purchase them both or are you limiting them to one person at a time?

JonC said...

Bill, this is gorgeous! I really, really would love to get a sketchbook with a bookplate. Can you please email me and let me know if I can order by mail?

Thanks!

fiawol said...

Hi Mike! Bill was sold out of the sketch edition the first few hours into the first official day of the con! I think at least half sold the 3 hours of Preview Night on Wednesday. I got one, thanks Bill!

boob said...

It was great to see you again this year. Fantastic stuff as always! I missed out on the limited edition (Lambey wanted one too...) even though it was only Thursday :) The plates look terrific if not exhausting! Amazing! Until next year - take care!
