Disclaimer one: By “limited edition” I mean that my wallet didn’t stretch to getting as many printed as I’d have liked, rather than there having been a deliberate attempt to restrict the number of these in circulation to make them desirable.
Disclaimer two: The pun in the title is not something I am proud of.
Disclaimer three: This is really pushing what can be classified as a news item. So I’ve added a competition element to make the story slightly more worthy of a place on BaseballGB (good job I backtracked on my original idea for a week-long headline post, otherwise Matt might have been changing the locks on the website).
The occasion alluded to in the title is the imminent publication of What about the Villa?, the first book to result from Project Cobb. It should be out next month, and each copy will be accompanied with a special (thereÂ I go again with the marketing talk!) Project Cobb bookmark, but only while stocks last (okay, this is beyond a joke).
The bookmark’s back and front are shown above and to the left, respectively. If you are the first person to leave a comment that correctly names the baseball field featured (clue: it’s somewhere in Britain) and the date (clue: it wasn’t too long ago), the first bookmark to be released into circulation will be one sent to you (three guesses per person max). Obviously, it would help if you like reading and tend to need at least two sittings to get through a book, otherwise there’s not much you can do with a bookmark. Also, I don’t want to see it on ebay in 3 days with a 25p “buy it now” price tag.
