This new "deluxe" hardcover edition of The Princess Bride just came out a couple months ago. I have it, and it's pretty awesome: The book is bound in faux-leather with gold embossing, and the pages are very weight paper, with ornate details and illustrations. It won't fool anyone about actually being old, but it looks the part - just like the book being read in the movie.

It retails for $35, and just dropped to below $20 for the first time. Right now it's $17, shipped on Amazon. Perfect pricing for a gift.

Is this a kissing book?

Ha, indeed it isn't!

For those who didn't get the joke, The Princess Bride book is framed as an "abridged" version of a (fictional) longer book, and the commentary of the abridgment is part of the book, just as the grandfather reading the book is part of the film.

Thus, it's kind of meta, but rest assured that this is THE book, in its entirety.

(The idea that it's abridged is simply part of the plot. Just like the into to the movie Fargo says it's "based on a real story" -- it' wasn't based on anything real, the Coen brothers just put that there because they could - it's part of the film and thus makes it more compelling. Ditto with The Princess Bride pretending to be an abridged version with "only the good bits.")

Absolutely. Though I'd bet that a good number of SDers have used the Amazon book coupon already... I certainly had!

That seems a good price, but I've been spoiled lately by all the book deals, so now this price looks meh.
Does look beautiful, though. But after $6 for hardcover Harry Potter book, $15 paperback HP series, etc. Tough world we live in.
