The $1500 Book of the New Sun

Centipede Press is printing an amazing leather bound copy of The Book of the New Sun for $1500. Here is a snippet of the description of the book straight off their site;
Leather - Printed on mouldmade Saunders Waterford. Bound in full goatskin leather with the color illustrations and a map enclosed in a cloth traycase with an extra set of unbound prints. Limited to 14 copies for sale.
The full omnibus includes: The Shadow of the Torturer, The Claw of the Conciliator, The Sword of the Lictor, The Citadel of the Autarch, The Urth of the New Sun and The Castle of the Otter. The illustations were created by German artist Alexander Preuss and judging by the few samples I've seen they look remarkable.Only 13 copies of the leather $1500 bound version are being made, but there is a $225 cloth version that, although doesn't include as much, is being printed up 300 times. Be sure to check out their site for a more complete description. Makes me wish I had $1500 sitting around.
