Under the Dome Slipcase Info

Hi Folks, I'm thrilled to announce pre-ordering for the new Under the Dome Slipcase. The case is made from a rich reddish/brown leather - (yes actual leather not synthetic). It features a graphic of the title on the front and spine of the case and author on the side and will cost $29.95 -This case will fit all US editions of Under the Dome: You can place your order on the Buy Slipcases page.

  • Signed Limited edition
  • Gift Edition
  • 1st trade edition

One of the major issues with this case was how to deal with the pack of cards included in the gift/limited edition while also figuring out how to get the trade edition (that didn't come with any cards) to also fit without making two separate cases. Here's how the design works:

 

For Gift/Limited Edition - The case will feature a removable "shelf" (Pictured below) with a ribbon, you pull on the ribbon and the cards and shelf will slide out as one, you can then remove the book....Because the shelf is removable you can keep the book in the shrinkwrap if you want and just not use the shelf.

For 1st Trade edition - As you know the 1st edition is a little thinner then the Limited/Gift edition. The case will feature a "spacer" (not shown) wrapped in the same leather material as the rest of the case, This is a board that will slide into the side of the case to help ensure a more snug fit in the case. There will be a little extra room at the top of the case because there are no cards to hold, but side spacer will keep the book snug enough that it doesn't flop around in the case.

!! PLEASE NOTE, FOR THIS FINAL BATCH OF SLIPCASES THE REMOVABLE SHELF HAS BEEN CHANGED TO A BLACK COLOR DUE TO THE LEATHER MATERIAL NO LONGER BEING AVAILABLE. ONCE THIS FINAL SET HAS BEEN SOLD NO MORE UNDER THE DOME CASES WILL BE PRODUCED.
