A Very Special Auction

Upon publication of Alabaster in 2006, Subterranean Press gave me half the copies of the lettered edition of the collection, thirteen copies, A-M. Over the past six years, we've sold only three copies of the lettereds. One was sold with a doll Spooky made (the green-haired boy from "In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers"), one with the Dancy cigar box, and, last year, one with the strange bottle from ""In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers."

Yesterday, Spooky put up put up a fourth copy, Letter H, which comes inside a handmade "book cozy" (like the velvet ones she made for a handful of copies of Frog Toes and Tentacles). We picked out the fabric together, to find something that felt very Dancy. Spooky added an embroidered H to one corner, on a patch of white cotton cloth, which I think suggests a quilt.

The book is signed by me and Ted Naifeh.

So, here it is. Absolutely one of a kind. Not outsourced.
