I have some exciting news for you: after months of waiting, our special leatherbound edition of The Well of Ascension has finally shipped from the printer. Huzzah!
Like our edition of Elantris, and Mistborn: The Final Empire the Dragonsteel edition of The Well of Ascension is bound in premium bonded leather, and the pages are smyth-sewn, not glued like most regular books. Mistborn is printed in black and red inks on quality, acid-free paper, includes a bound-in satin-ribbon bookmark, full-color endpapers by Howard Lyon, gilded pages, and two-color foiling on the cover. A 24-page art gallery starts off the edition and features never-before-seen artwork, a feruchemical chart, and three maps of the Final Empire. The Dragonsteel Leather edition of Mistborn: The Well of Ascension is 797 pages.
A few things you should know: These are going to be put on my store today at 12:00 (MST). If you’re wanting signed, numbered, and personalized copies we probably won’t be able to get them out in time for Christmas, but I’ll do my best. If you just want the book itself, we should be able to get that to you in time for Christmas with priority shipping.
Along with being able to order it from my store, we’re also sending it to several independent bookstores around the country where you may be able to acquire one.
For those of you who have been waiting to get your hands on the first leatherbound volume, Mistborn: The Final Empire, we also just received the second printing of these and will add them to our website at the same time we add The Well of Ascension.
