Hi All. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on a new book coming out titled The World Of It that's an official behind-the-scenes look at It Part 1 & 2. It's available for pre-order on Amazon:
Amazon, they're only charging a buck fifty less for the digital copy even though its just 0's and 1's and can't be re-sold.

Powell's wants 40 dollars for it though so I'm not sure who I'll buy it from, yet.

Got it pre-ordered! :)
Physical is the way to go because chances are, it will go up in value in a year or two since they probably won't flood the market with the book since there aren't as many book sellers anymore. One may say, "well I have no intention of ever re-selling it" but you just never know, you can find yourself out of work or with a bill that is too high for your budget and then you can fall back on your "collectors items" and Ebay. ;) I made over 300 dollars on a old GNR shirt one which saved my butt.

I would imagine that this type of book will not have a high print run. I'd say maybe 5, 000-10,000 copies will be printed. It may not sell many copies, like the beautiful 'Nightmares In The Sky' coffee table book by photogragher f-stop Fitzgerald with an introduction (a rather long one) by Stephen King. Alot of those ended up on the bargain shelf at the chain bookstores.

...my pre-order is complete....money??....what’s that????....
Its that stuff that grows on trees.

In the 90's they'd probably print about 100k copies but it wouldn't be a hardcover book if it was made in the 90's, it would be a magazine. Goonies, Jurassic Park, Terminator, E.T., Star Wars, Gremlins, they'd hire a writer and do all the same things this book has to offer but they'd put it out in magazine format for around 5-10 dollars. I imagine one of the horror magazine companies will also put out a special issue dedicated to IT but it won't be as in depth and it'll have advertisements. Fangoria probably will do it or maybe Rue Morgue, if they're still around.
