The Noise of Time | Jacket Printing Error (Jonathan Cape, 2016)


Notes on this edition: A small number of copies of the first U.K. edition of Julian Barnes’s The Noise of Time were distributed with a printing error on the dust jacket. The red lettering is missing for the author’s name on the front and spine and the blurbs to the back of the jacket. The letters impressed upon the jacket, which created an embossed effect (as shown in the photos), but the ink failed to apply.

In addition to the copy featured here, the author was made aware of two additional copies with this error. The exact number of copies with this printing error is unknown.

The Noise of Time (Jonathan Cape, 2016)

Keeping an Eye Open (Random House Canada, 2015)


Notes on this edition: Keeping an Eye Open: Essays on Art. Toronto: Random House Canada, 2015. Pp. 278. ISBN: 9780345815170

The first Canadian edition of Julian Barnes’s Keeping an Eye Open appears nearly identical to the first American edition, except changes to the publisher information on the title page, copyright page, and jacket that identify this edition as a Random House Canada publication.

Pages are cream, not white, as evidenced by the contrast between page color and the publisher’s device on the title page.
