Replay by Ken Grimwood - Numbered Edition
When 43-year-old radio journalist Jeff Winston dies and wakes up in his 18-year-old body in 1963, he is given a great gift: The ability to relive his life with all his memories of the previous 25 years intact. Now, he can make different decisions. But when Jeff reaches the end of his life, the replay happens again. And again. Jeff’s knowledge soon becomes as much of a curse as it is a blessing. As he plays out his life differently each cycle, he comes to discover that time is, in fact, shorter than he thinks—and that he is not alone.
One of the most elegant and gripping time travel stories ever written, Replay holds a mirror up to its reader, asking them to examine and re-examine their own existence. With each incarnation that Jeff lives through, we come to understand how short life truly is, and that to live each day to the fullest we cannot look backward, but must move forward.
First published in 1986, seven years before the release of the film Groundhog Day, Ken Grimwood’s novel was a precursor to countless “time loop” stories that would follow.
In 1988, Replay won The World Fantasy Award for Best Novel.

I absolutely love the design of this book, the chemise is perfect for protecting the illustrated boards from slipcase wear, it looks great, leather spine, which isn't always the case with a chemise, but I'm really pleased about this, both for it's practicality and it's aesthetic qualities.
Extraordinary, a chemise worth taking care of.
Then the cover boards themselves are gorgeous, subtly coloured (printed?) illustrations but incredibly detailed in form.
The illustrations as a rule are pretty amazing.
Love the bind, and the paper, though not my favourite, is lovely to the touch, as is the text print, and love the originality of the book as a whole, it stands out among the rest, it may not be the best, but it's up there given Suntup haven't really ventured here before designwise (that I recall), another reason to love it.
Like a broken record, I will voice always that I appreciate the variety, the designs, the aesthetics and the attention to detail, the nuances that litter each edition, the level of insight and it's execution is perpetually impressive.
Beautiful, beautiful book, well done. :)
Very nice edition
Love everything about this book! Thank you Suntup!
Let me repeat, Awesome!

We have seen these designs before, so in a sense it is a re-play. Haha. However these are executed to perfection. The endpapers design is simple (perhaps repeated marbled end papers) The slipcase was a bit simple. The chemise is a superb touch and the feel and look of the illustrated board makes this book a prime edition!
