i'm sure bill and some other collectors can fill you in on that guy. several years ago he bought up every high end buk item on ebay, paying top dollar while doing so....
i was taken out more than a few times by him.
I visited Abandoned Planet right before I came out to Portland and didn't see any Buk stuff. Though I suppose I wasn't really searching for it then... That place seems to have a damn good collection, based on how much of the rare stuff on Ebay comes from there...

D&I is the same as Red and This.
Only 50 made and seldom on the market - although This seems to be the more readily available of the 3.
They are a poem in a book - 1 poem!
And you can expect to pay around 1300USD for one.
Thanks. It turned out well. I'm spending a nice Sunday night trying to get these ready. This is the second hardback from BoSP. These sell out well in advance of the release date. Anyone intereested in the next few releases should e-mail me to be put on the list. Father Luke's book sold out in hours (10 copies) and this book by Hosho took about a day to sell out.
