LetterPress Publications. December 2019. Stephen King "Revival" The special deluxe slipcased limited edition with limited edition artwork portfolio. Illustrated by François Vaillancourt (16 Full-Color Interiors!) and Vincent Chong (Bonus Materials). 500 pages. This item is currently Out of Print from the publisher and will not be available for purchase again. Very Fine without any flaws in slipcase the same.
From the publisher:
As the debut title from Brian James Freeman's new LetterPress Publications, this volume is going to be a must-have for every Stephen King collection, but to make it a really extraordinary launch for his new press, Brian has decided to offer Revival: The Deluxe Special Edition as a "Preorder Only Limited Edition."
That means you, the collectors, get to set the print run! Reservations will only be accepted from May 15 until May 31 — after that, the print run is set and the book is guaranteed to be OUT OF PRINT pre-publication, so it will never show up heavily discounted or in Grab Bags from the publisher, etc.
No additional copies will be offered for sale and this could easily have the lowest print run of this sort of Stephen King collector's edition in many, many years! Please place your order now to get in on the ground floor of a very special new small press publisher!
About the Novel:
"I can't bear to believe his presence in my life had anything to do with fate. It would mean that all these terrible things—these horrors—were meant to happen. If that is so, then there is no such thing as light, and our belief in it is a foolish illusion. If that is so, we live in darkness like animals in a burrow, or ants deep in their hill. And not alone."
Revival by Stephen King is a dark and electrifying novel about addiction, fanaticism, and what might exist on the other side of life. This rich and disturbing tale spans five decades on its way to the most terrifying conclusion Stephen King has ever written. It's a masterpiece from King, in the great American tradition of Frank Norris, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe.

About the Portfolio:
We arranged with François Vaillancourt to collect all of his artwork from our special edition of Revival by Stephen King into an oversized Deluxe Artwork Portfolio. The artist personally signed each portfolio on a unique signature page designed around a brand-new full-color illustration inspired by the novel.
The Revival Deluxe Artwork Portfolio features twenty pieces of artwork, including the alternative version of the car accident, which only appeared in the Lettered Edition of the book, and the frontispieces for both editions. The art is printed on 11 inch by 14 inch sheets of a fine 100# Linen cover stock, which is archival quality and acid free.
Each set of prints is housed in a deluxe hand-made portfolio that is covered with the same material as the Limited Edition’s slipcase, making this the perfect companion to your book. There are two colors of hot foil color stamping on the cover, and the interior of the portfolio is lined with an elegant material that combines the luxury of suede and the richness of velvet.
Personally signed by the artist and hand-numbered, these portfolios were produced once, after which all applicable production materials were destroyed. There will never be a second run.

About the Artist
Glenn Chadbourne is an American artist. He lives in Newcastle, Maine. He is best known for his work in the horror and fantasy genres, having created covers and illustrated books and magazines for publishers such as Cemetery Dance Publications, Subterranean Press, and Earthling Publications. Mr. Chadbourne is known for his sense of humour and down to earth manner, as well as the stark honesty of his work.
Glenn Chadbourne attended Lincoln Academy before continuing his education at The Portland School of Art. He also attended the University of Maine at Augusta, as well as the University of Southern Maine.
His first published work was in the late 1980s for the Stephen King related newsletter called Castle Rock. He won a contest that called for artists to submit something Stephen King related.
He wrote, illustrated, and self-published a few comics called ChillVille and Farmer Fiend's Horror Harvest in the early 1990s.
