Illustrated eric?

Postby KPDGaskell » Tue Aug 24, 2010 9:25 am

Does anybody know where I can get a paperback copy of the illustrated eric? The only place I can find it looks like a re-release hardback on Amazon in November (or November 2011 for the paperback).

It would be really great if I could find a version that isn't too big or I’ll have to re-arrange my bookshelf a bit :)

I got my illustrated paperback from Abe Books. They have them there for as little as £2.90 with £2.45 shipping to the UK.

It's larger than normal DW paperbacks though at 19.5 x 28cm. And you won't be able to get a new copy as this is now unavailable. :)

I wasn't expecting new but that looks great, I checked on ebay and some copies go as high as £400. 19.5 X 25cm doesn't sound too big so it should be fine, thanks :)

It took me years to get a hardback copy of Eric. Like rocking horse crap.
Joy of joys, got it signed and personalised by the man himself. Good luck finding your copy in paperback,hope you are successful.

I don't think it's everyone's favourite to be honest. :?

Got mine a few days ago in the post, I actually enjoyed it a lot, especially with the illustrations, Eric reminds me of Twoflower a bit.

Also welcome to the site Mazza

Hellooo and welcome from me Mazza! I rather enjoyed Eric myself, especially the descriptions of Hell. :D

And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors
