The Colorado Kid
(179 pages, © July 2007)

Publisher: PS Publishing

Lettered Edition: 100

Limited Edition: 450

Artist Edition: 1,000

Unsigned Edition 10,000

Limited Edition



  • A lettered edition of 99 copies bound in leather and traycased. Signed by SK and all three artists. The original number of copies was 52, but PS publishing recieved permission to produce extra copies. Naturally some collectors were pleased to be able to get an otherwise sold out edition; others were unhappy assuming this would devalue the book on the secondary market. $1,750 - $2,250

  • A limited edition of 450 copies. Numbered, slipcased and signed by SK and the contributing illustrator. $500 - $700

  • An artist edition of 1,000 copies signed and numbered by the contributing illustrator. $225-$300 (est)

  • An unsigned, unnumbered hardback edition of 10,000 copies. While this is technically limited, it's not a 1st edition and the least valuable of the various editions $100 - $150

PS publishing tried something very different with this book. They split up the artwork evenly between 3 illustrators (JK Potter, Edward Miller, and Glen Chadbourne). So each edition has three states. You could buy a limited edition with JK Potter's drawings, and it would look completely different then the limited edition that was illustrated by Edward Miller. To help clarify which edition and state people are talking about PS publishing used the following letter/number system for ordering. To see additional pictures click here

You may see some lettere copies with artist remarques, labled A-Z for sale on ebay or thru secondary sources. These are legitimate remarques in the unsigned edition, done aftermarket. They were then labled A-Z by the original seller. They are not a seperate lettered edition from the publisher.
