Pics of digital print!
I can't get enough of seeing the physical book. I know you have the digital download, but it's different when it's real. This is just a proofing copy, it is not bound, nor does it have the proper cover, but the pages themselves are accurate colors, order, finish, etc.
Vellum for Signing
The below page is ONLY in the collectors edition, it is a vellum, translucent material, and is the page where Sandy will sign the books! Yes, he's REALLY signing them as promised - no "stamps" - with a sharpie, no less.
We did actually discover that my name is misspelled on the vellum sheet AFTER he'd signed about 200 copies. What made this more frustrating is that back in November we'd caught this typo and had sent a corrected file (and the printer acknowledged receipt of the revised file). But, then, when we received the pages for signing, saw they had used the older version! Stuff like this happens all the time in the game development and printing/manufacturing process - a combination of human error and bad luck. I don't believe this will greatly impact our timeline, but I'm not certain yet. If it does, I'll update you.
This is what the next page looks like (vellum page for signing is on the left). The idea is that since you don't have the cover of the book with this Cthulhu (since it's leather), then you still have this image of Cthulhu inside to look at:
