A very limited number of signed copies will be released and can be pre-ordered from selected bookshops and record shops, from 9am on Friday 20th January (UK only).
NME state Waterstones and Rough Trade will be two of the bookshops.
I reckon Coles aswell as when you click on the book it states in bold writing PLEASE NOTE - This is an unsigned paperback copy - so does that mean they will be getting signed copies??
Spoke to them yesterday. They said currently not due to receive any. Would suggest they probably won't now.
I spoke with Nigel this morning. He seemed confident that they would be receiving signed copies, but said they wouldn’t be listed on the website. Coles already has a list of people who have expressed an interest that is likely longer than the number of copies the store will receive.
That doesn't seem fair either not listing them on the website if they do receive copies - Like others on here I've been a Coles Customer for 10+ years and buy off them all the time! Had my last delivery from them yesterday!
Yet somebody that has maybe never bought off them before gets first dibs?
Life isn’t fair, is it? Collecting rare stuff isn’t an exercise in pure communism. If it were, there would be no such thing as a collectors’ market to begin with.
Coles are under no obligation to list everything on their website. I’m on their mailing list, and sometimes things are listed there that never make the public site. Personally, I’d rather know that I have an order confirmation from somewhere else than be on a wait list that may or may not come through for me.
Oh, and I only just received an order myself from Coles two days ago. That was the Rick Rubin book, which I don’t recall seeing listed on the website either.
I asked Waterstones how many copies they will receive and they wouldn't divulge it - so i replied back the list above and said 50 each - pretty daft really ! !
Thank you - I just ordered a spare as I think my Waterstones order may go belly up! Think i nabbed the last one !
Bleep were charging $25 to ship a paperback non tracked slow mail to the States. Remind me never to order anything from them.
its really amazing how people help here each others:)
i didnt get cigned copy,..im always too late ...
maybe i will have lucky soon :)
Did anyone get it from Hatchards? I finally found the listing for signed edition (below) but shows not available…the description for regular edition was updated a little while ago to reflect a chance to win signed copy in prize draw but no details.
I looked on Hatchards several times today and yesterday it was showing the non signed version when i last checked
Yeah, same…I’ve been checking throughout the morning (and night here), just noticed this a little while ago. Was trying to figure out if we missed it or what.
