New York: A Plume Book/New American Library, 1985. 1st Edition. Square folio, publisher's stapled illustrated stiff paper wraps, 12x12 inches.
King of horror Stephen King's 1986 wall calendar with monthly artwork taken from his books and magazine stories, names and birthdays of his favorite authors and important dates from his stories (fun fact: Carrie and Stephen King share the same birthday, September 21). Out of superstition, February notably remains empty of any King's fictional events as the author holds a deep belief that it is the only really bad-luck month and that he will eventually die in February. Features artwork from Pet Sematary, Children of the Corn, Creepshow, Carrie and Cujo among other classics. Cover illustrated with a portrait of King in front of his Bangor, Maine residence. Very light foxing on a few spreads, slight rust around staples and light toning to edges. Very good. Scarce. Item #2576
