(NOTE: These copies incurred some minor cover damage during shipping from the publisher and are accordingly being sold at a discount. The photos here are representative examples of the type of damage, but your individual copy may vary. We also have undamaged copies available.)
The richly illustrated hardback book covers the history of secret opening boxes, including their fascinating history:
There are also sections on puzzle box secrets, puzzle locks, and the current ‘puzzle scene’.
Three important notes:
1. Books are shipped in separate packages from any puzzles in the same order, to prevent damage to more fragile items during transit. You will receive tracking information for each package.
2. The book is also available from Pelikan. Buyers from the US will save on postage by buying the book here, those from the rest of the world will save on postage by buying from the Pelikan site.
3. An edition locked with a trick lock by Shane Hales will be available from the Pelikan site only, probably in September. The estimated cost is $136 (€114) plus postage. This note is issued so that collectors wanting the locked version do not unnecessarily buy the standard copy.
Altogether, 700 standard copies and 300 locked copies were printed. If the current edition sells out, a second updated edition will be issued.
