The Book of Giants arrived!

Hallelujah!! I finally got my complimentary copies of The Book of Giants! The books have made a long journey over the seven seas, all the way from Hong Kong to the Netherlands. Nobody knows exactly why it took it so long to reach the final destination… I guess the treacherousness of the seven seas might be the reason…and perhaps the carelessness of a few individuals in charge. However, my wife and I went yesterday to Breda to always pleasant and cozy comic book store, De Stripspecialist,  where an official opening of the first box took place.

I hope you will forgive me this lack of modesty, but I must say I was very, very pleased with the  exceptionally high quality of printing and binding, the trademarks of the publisher, Flesk Publications. Because I already saw an advance copy of the Trade Edition, I was particularly impressed by a very delicate and superbly executed binding of the Deluxe Edition. If you are a fan of beautifully produced limited edition books, this is your chance to obtain one.  This signed Deluxe Edition of The book of Giants is limited to only 500 copies, it  goes with a slipcase and contains an additional 16 pages The Book of Giants Sketchbook section.  This edition can be purchased only through the publisher.
