TMNT: The Ultimate Visual History autographed editions

Announcing the signed edition of TMNT: The Ultimate Visual History! I've got a lot of options available here, so bear with me.

First up is the "just me" signed bookplate, yours for $11 in the U.S., $13 outside the U.S.



Next up is the Eastman/Laird/Farago bookplate. This is $60 in the U.S., $65 outside the U.S. As with the one above, there's no adhesive on it, so you'll have to stick it in the book yourself using a gluestick, acid-free double-sided tape, or whatever material you have at hand that isn't going to deteriorate over time (and you can always tuck it into the envelope in the inside back cover if you want to keep it safe in the meantime).



If you want to go all out, I'm selling copies of the book with the bookplate, plus I'll sketch your favorite TMNT character(s) on the title page, and that edition is $125 plus shipping ($15 in the U.S., and please contact me for rates outside of the United States).

I'm happy to personalize anything you purchase, too--otherwise I'll just sign my name, or write "Turtle Power!" or "Cowabunga!" and draw a quick Turtle head for you.

I'm also available for commissioned drawings, and the pricing on those will vary according to paper size, number of characters, and whether or not it's a color illustration.

Thanks! I'm happy to answer any questions here, or you can write to me (and send money via PayPal) at andrewfarago(at)hotmail.com.

This is awesome Andrew! So these are prints right, or actual signed bookplates?

The pictures posted above are just to give you a sense of what the two different bookplates look like. Every one that I send out will have genuine autographs from me (or me, Eastman, and Laird, depending on which one you get).

The Eastman/Laird/me plate is roughly postcard sized, and it's a way for you to get your book autographed without having to track all of us down individually or sending your book cross-country.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

While supplies last, here's what people are getting with the bookplate edition. It's the signed plate, a quick sketch on a separate bookplate, and a photocopy of my original sketch for the book's cover, which I passed on to Ryan Brown and Kevin Eastman when they drew the final version:

Great purchase

I purchased the $125 deal from Andrew which included the book signed bookplate and sketch on title page. It is just awesome on the bookplate eastman and laird both did head sketches and the sketch Andrew did for me is awesome. The book was very well protected during shipping

I highly recommend
Josh

Andrew said that Eastman didn't sign all the bookplates with head sketches ( I don't know how many he did) but mine had one so I would definitely check with him if you order one and obviously the sooner you order the better chance you get one with a sketch

When I contacted him via facebook I bought the book deal which I bought last week when he first announced it. I requested the mikey playing baseball sketch.

When I received it the sketch was perfect and the bookplate was signed with head sketches. When I went to post pics on his fb today so people could see what it looked like I noticed that he wrote on a post eastman only did a limited number of bookplates with sketches and just signed the rest while laird put a head sketch on each one.

I would contact andrew through fb he answers quite quickly here is his fb link

I will say that the sketch and the autos and just everything about the book surpassed all my expectations and I am so happy I splurged on the higher end package

For $125 plus $30 shipping (to Canada, $15 shipping in the U.S.), you'll get the Eastman/Laird/me bookplate (Kevin Eastman quick Turtle head sketch while supplies last, although Peter Laird drew a Turtle on every single bookplate), a mini sketchcard/bookplate, a photocopy of my TMNT: The Ultimate Visual History concept sketch, and I'll draw your favorite Turtle or supporting character in the book. Michelangelo from the '80s cartoon is the most requested character so far, although I just sent out a book with Bebop and Rocksteady, which was a pretty fun challenge.

Feel free to ask more questions here or e-mail me at andrewfarago@hotmail.com.

All caught up again! I just sent a package off to Japan today, and a bookplate is making its way to Australia right now. Turtle Power!

Andrew,

I already have the book and won't be purchasing any of the editions you're offering, but I do want to take a moment and thank you for your work, which represents one of only two credible books (at least that I'm aware of) on the history of the TMNT.

Thanks! Keep in mind that I'll be making convention appearances occasionally, too, so that's another way to get a book with my signature. It's a great book for taking to comic book conventions in general, though, since most major conventions will have at least a few artists who've worked on the TMNT comics, animation, and cartoons over the years.

Andrew, you mentioned commissioned drawings. Do you draw your turtles in any particular style (Mirage, 1987 cartoon, 2k3, Nick) or is that dependent on the request?

Andrew, I'm goin to Dragon Con next week, but I'd really like to get one of your Eastman/Laird/Farago bookplates when I get back. Do you still have many left?
