Dear Fellow EP Aficionados,

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! I am happy to share with you some images from a book which I think is very fitting for this time of year, it is none other than A Chrismas Carol! Sure, this tale has had numerous illustrations over the years. So how does the latest EP DLE stand? Well, I think it's superb! The illustrations by Caniglia are truly inspired. I am a fan of his surreal/macabre work, which I feel is perfect for this timeless tale. The book itself is also luxurious, and top-quality. That said, I hope you find a wonderful title or two added to your collection, and again, season's greetings!

Thanks, these are wonderful pictures, would you be able to show more of the slipcase and the outer of the book, gilding?

2: Glad you like the pics. I may be able to take more later, but not at this moment. I will say that the slipcase is very high quality. Velvet inside, and it's very sturdy. The gilding looks fine. I have not seen any blemishes, but to be honest I don't go over it with a magnifying glass. Let me know if there's anything in particular you want to know. Also, it is signed by the artist, just like LEC books.

I think some of you have been waiting for a reasonably priced “Christmas Carol” DLE signed by illustrator Caniglia. They seldom appear on the market and have been priced at around $600 on eBay. But here is a link to a like new copy that was just listed on abe.com for $392. https://www.abebooks.com/Christmas-Carol-Signed-Limited-Edition-Bound/3020532489...
