Banned Books Week - Collector's Treasure of the Day

Slaughterhouse-Five Deluxe Limited Edition Book Autographed by Kurt Vonnegut
Banned Books Week is the national book community's annual celebration of the freedom to read. Hundreds of libraries and bookstores around the country draw attention to the problem of censorship by mounting displays of challenged books and hosting a variety of events. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is a signed deluxe limited edition of one of our favorite banned books: Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - 2007). The literary classic has been banned by the courts in the USA on the grounds that it is “depraved, immoral, psychotic, vulgar, and anti-Christian.” Labeled by some as "obscene", it has also been banned from many literature classes and libraries. This extraordinary leather-bound volume was produced in a limited edition of just 850 copies, is personally signed by the late author, and features special 3-color stamping, a fabric-covered slipcase, full-color illustrations, and a hand-numbered publisher's certificate of authenticity. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
