Did I really just realize that my local library might have some JDM editions that I don’t have covers for? Yep. And what a gold mine! They have a sackfull of those elusive large print editions. Like this one.

US large print editions are a nightmare. First of all, they are hard to find. Secondly, GK Hall and Thorndyke Press have both printed large print hardcover JDMs. Thirdly, some titles have been published by both companies. Fourthly, my correspondence with Thorndyke (hi, Ms Jamie!) revealed that GK Hall was once an imprint of Thorndyke, but no longer, so some editions are both GK Hall and Thorndyke. My solution is to not post any of them until I see them myself, and then I’ll use whatever publisher appears on the title page.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a US hardcover large print edition of The Dreadful Lemon Sky, printed in 1975 by GK Hall (ISBN-10 0816163081, ISBN-13 9780816163083).

    I actually may have that one. I went through a spate of collecting large print JDMs, basically … I dunno why. I’ll check when I’m back from holiday next week!
