Ramsey Campbell is one of the most critically acclaimed horror writers living today. For several decades, he has been publishing masterful short stories, novels, and other works that follow the rich tradition of literary horror. His work is also often cited as a preeminent example of British Weird fiction, a subgenre of the supernatural that conceptualizes fear in unconventional ways. In “The Decorations”, Campbell interweaves horror with Christmas in a short tale of a family whose strange, luminescent decorations become monstrous. It is a rare standalone book-form publication of one of his short stories. Paired with the text are Ladislav Hanka’s eerie, pitch-perfect engravings. This signed limited edition is also noteworthy for its fine craftsmanship and scarcity. Published by the Sutton Hoo Press, an exceptional private press operating in rural Minnesota, this volume represents the necessary skill and artistry of the centuries’ old craft of bookmaking brought into the 21st century.

This signed limited edition is in fine condition. In the original black cloth spine and back board with front board a rich marbled red. Text block fine, printed from handset Joanna types on dampened Johannot, a French mouldmade paper. This is copy #123 of only 250 signed by both the author and the artist.

A fine signed limited edition of Ramsey Campbell’s supernatural Christmas story, exceptionally scarce.
