Signed First Printing / First Edition with Smiley Face "2006" Character.
Illustrator Ralph Steadman signed for us on November 10th, 2006. On November 9th, 2006, Steadman brought quills and several pots of ink and - with a couple of visits to the irish pub across the street for some whiskey - he spent the day signing thousands of books for us. Of those thousand signatures, 20 copies were exceptional.
Of those 20 exceptional copies, booksellers bought half of them (hey, we need some perks!).
We wrapped and stored the 10 exceptional copies which remained and put them in storage. What makes these signatures exceptional? It wasn't the doodle (he did fifty or so caricatures of Kurt Vonnegut) or the date (he dated more than half of them). It could be the larger size or additional detail he gave to a particular image which made it stand out. It could also be that while signing 3,500 books from 7 different publishers, he only created these images once.
Such is the case with this one, which features his signature and date, as well as a character created from the date. IE, 2006 is written twice; once across the end of his signature, then again to create a face. Not only that, the face is smiling. His creatures tended to gawp, growl, and frown. The smiles were few and far between.
