About this title


Hill House has published the essential collector's edition of Neil Gaiman's wonderful novel. It features over 12,000 words, roughly 40 pages, of new material that did not appear in the trade edition of the book. It have heard that this material did appear in a very limited edition printing which Harper Collins did, but nowhere else! Did this additional material add to my enjoyment of the story Gaiman is telling. Oh, yes. It's a story with enough difference from the previous version to make sure that you too will pay close attention to the story once again. It is bound and slip cased in a beautiful Japanese silk cloth. It is much larger larger than the trade edition which is to say that it feels quite solid in my hands. American Gods in this edition is a mere five hundred or so pages, so the only conclusion I can draw is that both the paper and the boards are made of much sturdier stock. Much sturdier stock. The text, completely reset for this edition, is printed a two-color process (dark purple and black), it is highly readable with a crisp font that stands out nicely. it reminds me of the Victorian hot type set books I've got in my personal Library where the metal makes an impression on the paper. It's that good! It comes in a very handsome slipcase with a die-cut on the front panel, and a ribbon-pull which allows easy removal of the book. I really can't recall a more impressive printing job that featured a truly well-designed slipcase as well. As craft, it's perfect, and a wonderful presentation of a superb modern classic. Comes with a limited paperback "The Reader's Copy" intended to be read instead of putting wear-and-tear on your hardcover edition.
