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.
