Very nice! Did you find one locally, or online? I stopped at a used bookstore earlier today, but no luck.

I found it on Abe's right after the film came out.

Thanks for the scans! Could you kindly confirm the measurements of the book? I've stitched all of the sections together but I wanted to be sure of what size to print it. Cheers!

Beat me to it! Thanks, Joberg! Exactly the same as my measurements.

I should note that the book always seems to photograph (and scan) more red than it looks in person, in almost every photo that I have seen of it. Not sure why that is, but in person it looks more like orange. I tried to fix that in these scans a bit.

Michael, thank you for doing this... I'm going to find a print shop who can do a nice glossy print on cardboard to fit on a dummy book Very Happy This will be the ultimate placeholder till I find the real deal

Thanks for the measurements, Joberg!

Thanks for the scans and info 7 and Joberg!

Beat me to it as well. I found it on Amazon (scans of the cover and a few inside pages). Obviously not as good as those here, but was enough to start a trace/rebuild.

Moot effort now . . . - R13

Thank you for these great scans!

Think I received the last abebooks copy, though it was ex-library and the post gouged a small hole in the front cover.

Stitched together a dust jacket based on the scans:

Am I totally missing something or is the back cover not attached to the spine in the picture?? I see a white line...

I've had a go at fixing this - straightened the writing and stitched better.

Perfect! Thanks

Any change you would know how to scale the image to fit the proportions of a book that's 302x221 mm?

EDIT: Think I fixed that!
