Now available for pre-order, the special exhibition editions of Trevor Brown's "Pandora" and Etsuko Miura's "Reincarnation". Each will come with a mini version and probably have silver foil accents on the covers. I don't have actual images yet. :) Etsuko Miura is also making a special leather bound edition limited to only 50 pieces! Prototype is pictured.
