This book is the limited signed hardcover edition of 1000 published in December 1999 by Graphitti Designs (mine is #936/1000). It begins with an exclusive illustration signed by both the artist. Note that all the pages (circa 575) are individually numbered by the hand of Eddie Campbell (but reproduced as such of course). All the introduction pages from the original comics are reprinted here.
Notice that a Painfully limited edition of this book was produced by Eddie Campbell in 2002. From ChrisMcLaren' blog: "only 19 copies of this edition exist, each one created personally by Campbell. The book comes in a clothbound clamshell case with a black kangaroo leather cover and an original color painting by Campbell inside the front cover".
Here is the exact content of my "regular" limited edition of the book:
- the prologue,
- the fourteenth chapters,
- the epilogue,
- maps of London,
- the Appendix,
- "Dance of the gull catchers" as Appendix II.
