If you still haven’t picked up your copy of Elizabeth Gilbert’s No. 1 New York Times best-seller Big Magic (or if your copy has gotten so dog-eared and loved that you need another), you’re in luck: Riverhead, Gilbert’s publisher, is teaming up with New York artist Lourdes Sanchez to create 250 one-of-a-kind, limited edition copies, EW can announce exclusively.

According to Riverhead, “Just 250 copies have been created, each of them signed, numbered, and bound in a unique piece of art created by Sanchez, printed on satin, stamped with gold foil, and housed in a pristine white presentation case. Sanchez´s geometric works reference ancient tribal cultures, cellular biology, urban detritus, the natural world, and the quest for union with a spiritual force.” It’s a fitting collaboration, since Big Magic is all about creativity.

This idea comes from the mind of Riverhead’s art director Helen Yentus, who also dreamed up the illustrated version of Junot Diaz’s This is How You Lose Her (illustrated by comic artist Jaime Hernandez), and the 3-D printed edition of Chang-rae Lee’s On Such A Full Sea.
