“It was something… the way a person’s life picked up speed, the way a life was like a bullet aimed at one final target, impossible to slow or turn aside, and like the bullet, you were ignorant of what you were going to hit, would never know anything except the rush and the impact.” — Joe Hill, Horns

Personally signed by Joe Hill and Magdalena Kaczan, Limited to Only 1,000


Suntup Press 2019. "Horns" Joe Hill. Artist Gift Edition. Signed by Joe Hill and artist Magdalena Kaczan, the Artist Gift edition is limited to 1000 copies and features a dust jacket with stunning wrap-around artwork by Kaczan. It is a full cloth smyth-sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping, and is the only edition of the three with the wrap-around dust jacket art. The book is printed offset, and is housed in a custom printed slipcase. As New, sealed in the shrink-wrap.

A dark fantasy novel originally published in 2010, Horns is the book with which TIME Magazine proclaimed, “Joe Hill has emerged as one of America’s finest horror writers.” Horns follows the story of Ig Parish. After the brutal murder of his girlfriend Merrin Williams, a grief-stricken Ig awakens one morning to find horns growing out of his head. Ig soon discovers the horns hold a mysterious power that forces people to reveal their deepest and darkest secrets to him as he defends his innocence and fights to avenge the death of his one true love.

Horns was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award and hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “a richly nuanced story. Fire and brimstone have rarely looked this good.” In 2013, the novel was adapted into a film starring Daniel Radcliffe, which made its debut at The Toronto International Film Festival before receiving a theatrical release on October 31, 2014.

This is the first North American signed limited edition of Horns, and features twelve full-color illustrations by Magdalena Kaczan. This edition also includes a new introduction by Joe Hill.

Signed by artist Magdalena Kaczan, the Artist Gift edition features a dust jacket with stunning wrap-around artwork by Kaczan. It is a full cloth smyth-sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping, and is the only edition of the three with the wrap-around dust jacket art. The book is printed offset, and is housed in a custom printed slipcase.

“Artist Magdalena Kaczan’s artwork just about glows on the page. There’s something about her style — dreamy, vulnerable, rippling with texture…” — Joe Hill

About the Publisher

There is a clear distinction between a book that is mass produced, and one that is a finely crafted book. Our Limited and Lettered editions are hand-bound, one at time, and we go to great expense to utilize only the finest materials available. Most of our editions are printed letterpress, which is the printing method perfected by Gutenberg, who used it to produce the first book printed from moveable type in the West, the now-famous Gutenberg Bible.

The mission of our press is to publish finely crafted limited editions, by collaborating with some of today’s leading writers, artists, designers, printers and bookmakers to create an edition that is itself, an art object. By incorporating elements of the story into the design and production of the books, and enclosures, our editions offer a unique reading experience.








ABOUT THE EDITION

This is the first North American signed limited edition of Horns, and it is presented in three states: An Artist Gift edition, a Numbered edition and a Lettered edition. All three measure 6” x 9” and feature twelve full-color illustrations by Magdalena Kaczan. The editions are signed by Joe Hill and Magdalena Kaczan, and all editions include a new introduction by Joe Hill.


“I am so pleased to be doing an edition of Horns by Suntup Editions. Their books are remarkable.” — Joe Hill
