Shadowhunters, check your inboxes because Cassandra Clare sent another newsletter to her subscribers! While some stuff like a new The Red Scrolls of Magic snippet as well as some The Dark Artifices art is exclusive and thus will be shared here in a couple of days, Cassie also has some exciting Queen of Air and Darkness news for her readers!
I want to take a moment to talk to you about the first edition of Queen of Air and Darkness. For this book we’re going to do some pretty special stuff. The whole first printing will be an exclusive first edition. Once that first printing runs out, there won’t be any more exclusive editions printed.
The exclusive first edition will contain ten black and white illustrations by Alice Duke, who has done a couple of awesome illustrations for us before, and a full color poster printed on the back of the book jacket, also by Alice. In addition to this exclusive art, the first printing will include a short story that functions as a sequel to A Long Conversation.
As with Clockwork Princess, there will NOT be different editions with varying special content available at different bookstores. Instead there will be a limited number of first editions available to anyone who preorders or buys the book as soon as it comes out. Once they run out, they’re gone.
I love Alice’s work, and I’m really looking forward to seeing her illustrations bring Queen of Air and Darkness to life visually!
I cannot wait to for all these extras! They sound amazing ♥
As soon as I know if the Simon & Schuster UK edition (paperback) is going to have the same extras, I’ll let you know by updating this article.
