The Christmas Box Leather 24 kt gold signed edition
After The Christmas Box, first self-published as a small paperback, had become a local success, readers began asking for a hardcover. Richard decided to do something very special. He personally designed a leather version on special paper and a gold ribbon, imprint with 24 kt gold with 12 kt gold corners.
Although 1,000 were ordered, less than half of those survived the production process. By the time the books were delivered, The Christmas Box, had been sold to a major publisher and so the gold edition was not sold to the public, rather used as a special gift to dignitaries, such as: Ron Howard, James Earl Jones, Richard Thomas, Maureen O'Hara, President George H. Bush, President George W. Bush, and President Bill Clinton.
Each book comes with an edition number and certificate of authenticity.
