Limited edition of 1Q84 on sale for $12,405

There is a limited edition copy, with a perspex case, of 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami on sale on AbeBooks for $12,405. I’ll let the bookseller, over in the UK, do the talking.

This edition is quite possibly the most sought-after edition of a Murakami work in the world right now – extremely rare (limited to 111 copies worldwide). The front and back covers are printed on Somerset, a 100 percent cotton archival paper, using a Swiss-made 1963 Gietz Art Platen hand-fed letterpress. This limited edition is a collaboration between Simon Rhodes, Kristen Harrison at The Curved House and designer Stefanie Posavec. Text design by Jim Smith. Covers printed by Justin Knopp at Typoretum. Text pages printed and bound by Graphicom, Verona. Contains all 3 books in this trilogy.

If your credit card won’t stretch to $12,405, you can find cheap and cheerful copies of this book here.
