Harper Collins bet really big this year on Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. The book became an instant bestseller with over 1 million copies sold in the first week and bookstores all over the world racked in a ton of cash. In order to generate even more revenue, Harper Collins has partnered with US bookseller Books-a-million, for a special edition of Go Set a Watchman and it costs $1,500.
The special edition “Go Set a Watchman” package includes a hardcover bound in leather with debossed gold foil stamping on the front, spine and back cover; gold gilded edges; and printed endpapers. The book is enclosed in an elegant, two-color cloth box lined in velvet with a magnet closure, silk ribbon pull, and inscriptions on the interior of the box.
There are only 500 copies of this book that went into production and each one is also autographed by Harper Lee. If you just won the lottery, sold your company or are looking to go into debut you can order the Special Edition right now online.
