Still available.

These two bookplates are still up for grabs.

Friday, May 16, 2008


That's the signal.

Anyone who would like to order a special edition of Belle du Jour with a tipped-in original art bookplate may do so now by e-mailing me a request to bill@billpresing.com

Please title this e-mail "bookplate request" so that I may distinguish it from other e-mails to better identify the 25 proud new bookplate owners. It may also be helpful to list your first five choices (in order of preference) from the list in the previous post. If your first 5 choices are not available I'll let you know what is still available on a person to person basis.

Again the special edition book with original art bookplate will cost $150 US plus shipping and handling (shipping cost will vary based on your location and preference). Each bookplate will be signed and numbered. See previous post for any additional information.

In other news, I will be attending Super-con this weekend. So if you are purchasing a special edition and are also attending Super-con we may be able to arrange the exchange there and avoid shipping costs.
Also for the first time since Calgary I'll be offering art prints in addition to my usual wares at Super-con. Le Frou Frou, Charra, Saraswati and Ergonomic Delight will each be available.

See you there!

Bookplates are here!!

Thats right, the final 30 bookplates are finished!

For anyone who might be new to my blog; I've created 100 special editions of my book Belle du Jour that include tipped-in original art bookplates. I sold the original 70 at last years San Diego comicon. I will be selling 25 of the remaining 30 here on my blog. 4 will be sold in an exhibition at Gallery Arludik in Paris in June, and the final 1 I'm keeping as a memento of this endeavor :)

Here's the plan.

If you would like to purchase one, they will be made available as of Friday May 16th at approximately 1pm Pacific time (thats 4pm Eastern time, 10pm Europe/Paris time, 6am May 17th Brisbane/Australia time, to name a few). At that time I will make a post to my blog giving the go signal. Once I've given the signal you may e-mail me at bill@billpresing.com. The first 25 people to e-mail me will be given the option to purchase one (one per customer please). I'm not going to accept orders before the go signal is given (sorry). The first person to e-mail will get first pick of the 25 available bookplates, the last person gets whatever is left.

They will sell for $150 each (plus shipping and handling), which includes the signed original art as well as the book. Payment options will be discussed with each of the 25 e-mailers individually (paypal is preferred though).

I hope that makes sense. You can e-mail me or leave comments if you have any questions.

Here's what they look like.
