Hi booklovers! I am working on a new thing and I’d love your advice ツ

Specifically, I’m working on a new list of upcoming (or available) special editions of books that anyone can buy. For a long time I’ve maintained a compendium of books with sprayed or stencilled edge treatments, but over the past year I found it was getting overrun with book club editions that were only available to people who subscribed to these clubs – making the list more exclusive than I’d ever anticipated.

I also get asked a lot where I find out about my “fancy” books (which helps me take advantage of preorder discounts and avoid paying a premium to flippers). This information comes from a lot of different sources, so I thought compiling it all into a list for you would be the most useful service I could provide here.

The list isn’t finished yet, but I’m at a stage where I’d love some feedback so I thought I’d make it public anyway. Is this list useful to anyone? Should I keep going with it, or is the information easily accessible/collated elsewhere? Does the structure and layout make sense to you?

Thanks so much for any suggestions.

This is awesome so please continue ! I’m from France. I love collector’s editions but I have hard time finding them before their sold out if I’m aware of their existence in the first place lol

    Thanks so much for commenting- you’re exactly the sort of person I’m hoping this list will help 💕 it’s hard keeping up with new editions and so frustrating to find out about them only after they’ve sold out!

      I have honestly no suggestions. I just wanted to leave a comment to let you know that THANK YOU for putting all this together. It is super useful!!
      After going through it I went to waterstones and placed a 9 book order xD
      I can imagine it took a lot of effort but please do not give up!

I love these lists, i original only searched for sprayed edges, but I found great books in your new list, so i will probably keep checking this new list now. Thanks!

Awesome – it’s really helpful to have all this in one place – please do keep it up! ❤️ (I like the fantasy and sci fi titles the best.)
