Anyone going to break the bank and buy the very limited "Art Of Rush European Version?"  350 made.  Signed by Hugh Syme and the boys.  I wonder who they got Neil to sign 350 of these books!

It's a beautiful book.  Housed inside a wooden box.

Nice idea, but outrageously priced, IMO.  I already have a lot of Hugh Syme's art on the CD covers and liners.  I have to agree that the set looks beautiful, however.  I guess autographs are worth something as well.  I have Alex's autograph on one of his limited edition prints and it looks very nice on my wall.  I guess I'm satisfied with that.

"This release has been titled “European” due to feedback from fans in Europe, who were faced with the hurdle of high shipping charges on the original Art Of Rush Limited Edition releases. To accommodate these fans Rush Backstage is offering local shipping rates for all customers ordering from the UK and Europe.
350 units will be available for $995 USD."

Man oh man, you really have to like owning stuff to get a copy of a book that costs 10 times what the basic edition is just because it comes in a fancy box and has a few scribbles on it.

However, I have the "basic edition" and I have to say it's pretty cool.  You get the artwork the way it should be seen, before the printers screwed up all the colours.  There are some cool extras, too.

I plan to get the regular edition but haven't gotten around to that yet.

Ultimately, I'd have liked to get just the book signed by all four but I've already gotten all four in various configurations but not on the same piece and this would be something I wouldn't mind being signed by all four so maybe someday.

Kind of feel bad for those people who bought the Caress of Steel litho thinking that was going to be it though.
