FIRESTARTER SIGNED AND REMARQUED

FIRESTARTER SIGNED AND REMARQUED

Michael Whelan illustrated the cover for the limited edition of Firestarter back in 1980 for Phantasia Press. It was his first work with Stephen King and led to his assignment on The Gunslinger a year later.

The book was limited to 725 copies plus 26 lettered editions and remains one of the most sought after editions of King’s work.

This year Phantasia Press planned to release a limited number of vintage Firestarter dustjackets signed by Michael Whelan.

Being a constant reader himself, Michael knew this would be a great opportunity for fans—only Stephen King signed the book at publication—so he has also remarqued these original dustjackets.

We are excited to announce this rare and special offering will be available in our shop on Saturday, March 5, 2022 at noon EST.
