Another variation on the 3-in-1 hardcover limited signed edition:

An unknown number of copies marked "AP" on the limitation card, for "author's proof" or "artist's proof". These were presumably review copies, and/or copies that the author/artists could present to friends.

I just picked up one such copy, still in the original shrink wrap from the bindery. It was marked AP on the bindery label, and someone else had written on the label that it was signed by the artist -- but this was incorrect as it was only signed by Anne (yep, I broke the shrink wrap to check).

Now I need to decide whether I'm keeping this copy or should resell it.
