Need help with OCD and my collection...

Postby king100 » Wed Aug 20, 2014 8:37 pm

Evening People

Trying to organise my collection and have the same formats of books in my collection. Which gets annoying at times.

Does anyone have good suggestions on where the best place to buy TP DW books.

All of them are either Gollancz or Doubleday. Is there a copy of Light Fantastic or Colour of Magic in this style as can only find a copy that has both and not as singles.

These are the style I am looking for

There was a dealer at DWCon this year, Steven Dean. Was wondering if anyone knows of his website please?

I do trawl ebay as my main reference but cannot seem to find any on google or any decent books sites.

Not sure king, but they call the types you are after "letterbox" format. I have a similar dilemma, - want a hardback copy of the amazing Maurice and his educated rodents, but want the cover by paul kidby which has the piper, Maurice and some of the rats walking towards you. I think that particular cover is only in paperback at the mo tho :(

Well, I’ve bought some Pratchett books HERE and there are many different editorial. Anyway, it’s a very interesting web. I recommend to you to have a look. ;)

Only just seen this post. Just to help the OCD....

Some of the letterbox editions come in 2 slightly different covers.... So I am always looking for both versions of the dust jacket :)

King100, Search for Ebay user name "ffordianfan", that is Steve Dean... Send him a message through there. He has an ebay store called OfficialDiscworldpropstore, as he is the official place to buy the props from the Sky tv productions :D
