Haruki Murakami
SIGNED x2--Wind-Up Bird Chronicle--Haruki Murakami--REVIEW COPY + PROOF + EXCERPTS
Knopf, 1997. This listing is for a lot of three editions of Haruki Murakami's "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle", published by Knopf in 1997--one signed by both the author, as well as the book designer; another by just the designer. You will receive all three books; those pictured here. Included are: 1) Hardcover first printing of the first edition; a review copy that includes, laid-in, a glossy author photo. This copy is signed by Haruki Murakami (old / original signature style) via a publisher-supplied bookplate affixed to a tipped-in page at the front of the book. This copy has been further signed by book designer Chip Kidd at his credit on the lower back flap of the dust jacket. A very nice copy, very hard to find with all these attributes. 2) The uncorrected proof copy of the first edition, in light green card wraps. A little bit worn, and some sticker residue to cover, but quite nice shape overall. 3) Advance excerpts from the first edition. A slim volume containing a handful of chapters as a preview. There is a fold-out green tab page in the middle that is a bit creased and worn, as usually found to be the case. Designer Chip Kidd has signed this volume as well, at the back, where his design credit is. Also included (but not shown) is an event program from 2013 / 2014 when I had Mr. Kidd sign the books. Condition is very good or better on all items. Please review all images. Shipped with tracking via USPS Media Mail. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
