After a few years on searching, and of course saving for these beauties don’t come cheap, I finally tracked down the two remaining volumes of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, in its Absolute Edition, a leather bound book inside a slipcase with this legendary reprinted and enhanced.
The first four volumes and The Absolute Death have been on my book shelves for quite a while, I bought them between 2006 and 2009 when they were originally published.
For the last 8 months, I have been searching for volume 5, originally published on November 2011, and the last volume, Sandman: Overture, originally published on July 2018, and finally hit the jackpot with Volume 5, and a couple of months later with Overture.
Here are some pictures to exemplify why I love this edition so much.
Volume 5 contains the story Dream Hunters, illustrated by the legendary Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano, and the art for Overture is by one of my favourite illustrators, J.H. Williams III.
I am more than happy to have this beauties on my shelf, this means some reading sessions with a good glass of wine, and the Dream Lord guiding my footsteps
Off to read.
