This is the second hardcover volume. Book designed by Chris Ware.
Here's the description:
This limited-edition hardcover (1000 copies, never to be reprinted) collects the second batch of Krazy & Ignatz softcover books we have published, comprehensively collecting the years 1935 through 1944, under hard covers. It's not a slipcase, it's a single hardcover book. The covers to the original five softcover books are NOT included, but literally everything else is. And yes, we are similarly collecting the years 1916-1924, as those softcover volumes are completed. Because of the limited nature of this item, we are not distributing this through traditional bookstores or Diamond distribution. A beautiful, must-have brick of a book for the Ignatz in you (though lobbing it at any unrequited love interests WILL cause serious physical harm -- be warned).
