- Pre-Orders have been brisk for ToA. If you ordered A Princess of Mars - The Manuscript Edition we'll continue to hold your corresponding number for Tarzan of the Apes until the end of the month. But if you've not pre-ordered by then or contacted us, we'll release those numbers to new customers.
- New Ship Date - Late March/Mid April. We are experiencing several delays as we prepare to take the book to production. Each book & box requires almost one square yard (9 sf) of leather for production. We've been informed that our order of 700 yards of Eurobond Marsala Flanders leather coming from the tannery in Spain will be delayed by at least two weeks.
- Two Dust Jackets: One dust jacket will be a based on the classic Tarzan of the Apes 1st edition dust jacket illustration and design by Fred Arting. In addition we've commissioned two double panel wide paintings for this edition. Daren Bader's painting is featured on the landing page of the erbbooks.com website. And Sanjulian has created a beautiful painting (see close-up above) that masterfully captures Tarzan's epic battle scene with Kerchak in grand fashion. One painting will be used for the second dust jacket and the other one will be used for full color endpapers.

Just sent out an update email to our mailing list. You can view it here.
It's amazing to see this edition come together. In the past few month we've added Neal Adams art to the edition and he'll be signing all the editions. In addition, the Sanjulian dust jacket painting in amazing! It's worth getting the edition just for the 22 Zdenek Burian illustrations for Tarzan of the Apes. Tom Yeates will be writing the artist's preface and signing the book. He also heavily contributed illustrations for the book. There will be an 8-page fold-out of four of the best Tarzan artists with Tarzan illustrations side by side: Foster, Hogarth, Kubert and Adams. Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize winning author has written the foreword and will be signing the book. The list goes on and on.
