A limited edition hardback copy that is hand numbered and signed by the author, published in September 2017! We won’t be reprinting these books – once they’re gone they are gone. We’ll also send you an exclusive A3 print of the book’s wraparound artwork by illustrator Magdalena Szymaniec. They’ll look nice in a frame, or hidden under your mattress where other jealous readers can’t get at them!
Not only that, but we’ll list your name in the back as a patron of new literature who was a maker, not just a reader.
