Numbered Edition Pre-Order Details

Due to the popularity of our previous title, there is a ‘one copy per household’ rule in place for the first 24 hours of public pre-order. You will be able to add only one item to your basket. If any further orders are placed within the first 24 hours, those orders will be refunded. If there are copies remaining after the first 24 hours (at the time of 6pm GMT on Sunday the 30th January), all limits will be removed and you can order as many as you like. This is to ensure everyone has a fair and even chance at purchasing a copy when the pre-order opens.

Limited to 250 copies. The first 100 copies of this edition were offered to current rights holders at the beginning of January through a private pre-order. The remaining copies of this edition will become available for general sale on Saturday the 29th of January 2022 at 6pm GMT.

Copies 1-150 will carry rights to the next Lyra’s Classics title. Any available rights copies will be randomly allocated among the pool of pre-orders made within the first 24 hours. New rights holders will be notified by email within 48 hours of purchase. Copies 151-250 will not carry rights to future titles. Read more about how rights work.
