Thank you for registering your interest in the Celestial edition of the Illustrated Good Omens, published by Dunmanifestin
This rare presentation copy is a serious investment for the book and art collector. The craftmanship in this edition elevates every tome to a printed masterpiece. Each copy is individually printed and hand bound by artisans in the UK. The leather-cased hardback features bespoke metal corner pieces, hand-marbled endpapers and gold foiled page edges. Dedicated signature pages, signed by Terry Pratchett’s co-author Neil Gaiman and artist Paul Kidby, correspond to the twenty-four letters of the Greek alphabet. The book contains 20 colour illustrations, and further pencil art and graphics, printed using state of the art printing and foiling techniques. The volume is presented in a tailor-made burr oak box, with winged hourglass metal inlays, and an inset brass disc inscribed with the Greek character unique to each copy. Inside, a secret compartment reveals further Good Omens bounty: an envelope of fourteen items of ephemera including maps, prophecy cards and unique art prints. Also contained within the box is a hardbound copy of never-before-published William the Antichrist, the very first inception of the Good Omens story written by Neil Gaiman over thirty years ago.

Overall we believe we have created a truly Celestial edition.

Price including UK delivery by specialist art couriers is £6,666 per copy.

I was hoping the price would be closer to £666. Too hot for me.

Good Omens

Wrapped it up last night and quite enjoyed it. Itd been since publication that Id read the book so the denoument was fresh for me, although I obviously knew the good guys would win in the end. I dont need a Good Omens II but I would very much like to see Sheen & Tennant work together again. McKean and Richardson were a treat together, too.
