A very odd
limited edition from Charnel House.
Odd Thomas has
a gift. He can see the dead.
Together they just might be able to prevent hell on earth.
at Charnel House we take great pride (and artistic license) incorporating
key elements of each story into our award winning book designs. Without
spoiling this incredible story, two locations of interest where odd
events happen (or not) are a diner, and a bowling alley.
The book is
an odd 12 inches high by 6 inches wide. The narrow text block is designed
to resemble a bowling alley with page numbers on bowling pins at the
top and lane markers at the bottom of the page. Each chapter opening
initial capital letter is on a rolling bowling ball and the endleaves
are score sheets. Seven custom type fonts and five spot hand drawings
printed on luxurious 80lb. archival paper are used in the production
of this book.
is available in two editions:
(only 500 created)
(only 26 created)
been working with the different options that are available in
manufacturing the stainless steel for the lettered edition of
ODD THOMAS and the book is now in production. After a prototype
was constructed we decided against the fingerprint resistant coating.
It was a great idea but it takes the mirror quality away from
the steel. Cleaning directions will now be enclosed and we will
even include a pair of white gloves for handling.
We respectfully advise
ordering this title in advance to avoid disappointment as these
editions tend to go out of print quickly. The 26 copy Lettered
Edition has been known to sell out in it's first week of announcement.
