Following the successful Kickstarter project, I am now offering the general public the opportunity to reserve a copy of the very limited edition print run of St. Cybi's Well.  Each and every one of these books will be bound by hand by me.  (I have been a professional bookbinder and book & document conservator for more than 20 years.)  They will be on a better quality paper stock than the trade paperback books, with actual folded & gathered signatures rather than the so-called 'perfect' bindings of single sheets in the paperback edition.  All of the hand-bound books will be individually numbered, signed, and inscribed.  The edition will be limited to just 101 numbered copies, plus two Author's/Artist's Proof copies.

To reserve your limited edition copy of the book, a $100 minimum payment is required, with the balance due before publication.  You may then reserve one of the available numbers in the edition, or have the next available number assigned (email me for details).  Your $100 payment will cover the cost of a hand-bound, full cloth hardcover copy of the book.  Or you may apply it as a downpayment towards one of the more expensive packages outlined below.

If you would like to order a "matched set" of paired edition numbers with the Communion of Dreams limited edition book, please just make a note of this when placing your order.
