Hi guys and gals. I have the paperback edition, and standard hardcover edition, and even the beautiful Cemetery Dance illustrated edition. But as I was browsing through the internet looking for a specific edition of Lord of the Rings I came across The Folio Society. I ordered their box set of LotR and then decided to have a proper browse.

To my joy I came across a special illustrated edition of The Exorcist (ordered straight away), special illustrated editions of Terry Pratchett's Small Gods and Mort (both ordered straight away), and to top it all off, Stephen King's The Shining.

They all arrived this morning so I thought I'd share some pics of The Shining. Enjoy.

Thank you for sharing. I saw these images online but didn't know to which edition they belonged. Out of all the artwork for The Shining I've seen, these are the best and most accurate. I like the wasps nest, especially. I'm glad they chose a wasp for the cover, too. This plot point doesn't get mentioned much but it's incredibly important because it's one of the first manifestations that lets Jack and Wendy know something is amiss (Danny already knows, obviously). There's also
The Wasp Woman who Danny sees
and the wasps are a metaphor for the hive of the hotel overrun with ghosts and the swarming thoughts in Jack's mind...like the Macbeth quote, "full of scorpions is my mind".
