A few fomas and some granfaloons

During my adolescence, I was strongly influenced by reading Kurt Vonnegut’s brilliant novels. His thoroughly original mash-up of science fiction, satire, dark humor, and political commentary resonated with my angsty teen self. Over the years, I’ve collected and sold a number of Vonnegut first editions, but I haven’t seen many interesting limited edition versions of his fiction until I recently ran across this set from the Easton Press.

The impressive clothbound collection includes Slaughterhouse-Five, The Sirens of Titan, Cat’s Cradle, Breakfast of Champions, and Mother Night. A goldfoil stamped rendering of Vonnegut’s famous self-portrait adorns the spines of the dust jackets and each volume has original artwork by the painter Richard Sparks. The limited edition set is pricey, but Vonnegut fans and collectors may want to check it out here.
