I want a signed copy. Maybe on the last Train to Bronxville?

Makes me wish someone had saved that thread with the photoshopped Macchiavelli portraits - we could have that made in to a special edition booklet signed by Manton Actually, I remember him mentioning that the publisher would not budge on including diagrams. What if there were a companion website to the book with those? I don't know if they would balk at that but it could be a way around it...

LOL!

Maybe it is my monitor settings, is the suit on the left charcoal or black?


I am really looking forward to this. I keep getting apologetic notifications from amazon.com that my preorder is still alive...

It's actually charcoal pinstripe. I edited the post so you get a larger version when you click on the image.

What they did with 'Freakonomics' is that due to the demand for signed copies (I don't think those on the fora have such an impact) they came up with something else:
stickers, maybe 10x10 cm with a nice logo of the book and the signature of the authors. Plus, they ate the postage and even sent one for me to Germany (I don't see sending the book to the US and back for that only if I can have it without postage in Germany). I would sincerley hope that to be an option.
Signed bookplates are fairly common for first editions and such. It might be a good solution in this case. Of course, as a book collector, it loses some appeal in that the author did not actually sign the book itself.

Publishers will also do first edition clubs with bookstores. The bookstore agrees to buy x number of first editions, signed by the author, and does not have the opportunity to return unsold copies, something that is usually standard. Some bookstores do this as a subscription series. I really like that.

Someone here could arrange this, if the author were interested. In fact, the author could probably do it himself, and pocket the difference between wholesale and retail, but that could be a lot of work.

Has he announced where he is doing his book signing in NYC?

I think an event like this warrants a celebration!

I should add ive pre-ordered several copies.

Manton -

What name would you be using to sign the book anyway?

Can we assume that your pseudonym is designed as a tribute to Niccolo Machiavelli?

The cover is rather Evelyn Waugh.

Agreed. It's quite possible they used the same illustrator as the recent paperback editions. Looks a little like Penguin's Wodehouse as well.
