M.D. Elster Sadly, there are no plans at present for a hardcover. This decision was mostly based on the fact that the interior images and number of pages made the book costly to print, so the retail price wasn't something Exquisite Skeleton Books was comfortable expecting customers to realistically pay (as a reader, I like cheap books, too!). But if the book catches on, the subject will be revisited. In the meantime, I can tell you the paperback came out really lovely -- a pretty, dark, glossy cover and inside the photographs printed really nicely. Either way, thank you so much for your interest!
