Edward Van Halen slipcases. Made from aluminium, made by hand. A lengthy, time consuming process. They are now finally ready for screen printing. We are nearly there.

All editions are sold out – but they say they will print a second edition. Hopefully they will be more realistic on shipping dates this time around.

I hope there is a second edition. I missed out on this one.

Thanks Ron.

Looks cool Ron. How’s the binding on it ? It’s a heavy book.

Binding seems fine – it all looks good – looking forward to paging through it. At initial glance, it looks like it’s all photos plus a little intro text for each VH era. I didn’t see any index of the photos or text saying where or when each shot was taken.

Having now spent the time to look through the book page-by-page, I must say that the photos are great! But like I said above, there is no index of shots. No indication anywhere that I saw showing where or when the shots were taken. I think that added info would have helped my enjoyment, and would have brought me back to the book time and time again as a reference.
