Dallas, TX: Aredian Press, 2016. 30 pp. Approximately 2 1/4 x 3". LIMITED EDITION of 5 copies, this being #5. Red goatskin over boards with wrap-around EKG line, digitally printed in 7 pt Centaur on Neenah Southworth, signed on the colophon by the publisher; housed in a fox with a red goatskin cover and wrapped around by 3 sides by printed paper made to resemble blood or cells, 4 metal feet, beautiful paper on inside of box lid, ledge with pull-tab for book, nestled underneath is a small model heart that beats when squeezed, all in fine condition. (Bradbury, Amistad Press 19)

What a wonderfully innovative design! The book with the hidden compartment underneath for the heart and that actually beats for several seconds when squeezed provides the perfect housing for Poe's classic story of The Tell-Tale Heart. First published in 1843, this short story is told in the first-person narrative where the narrator describes the murder he committed while trying to convince the reader that he is not insane.
