Not all collectable books are old and we thought we would have a look at some of the more collectable releases between 2000 and 2010.
Not only will this have people scrambling to their bookshelves but it might also help you to have the foresight to pick up books in the future that might become collectable in the years to follow.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Not only did J.K Rowling achieve worldwide fame with her Harry Potter series, now even the fictional books in those are achieving astonishing success.
The original edition is bound in brown Moroccan leather with silver ornaments and mounted moonstones however there were only 7 of these made and Amazon bought the only available copy for just shy of £2m.
Other early editions are still very valuable including the collector’s edition, of which only 100 were made.
Pretty much any Harry Potter book after 200 that has been signed by J.K Rowling will hold additional value. It goes without saying that the edition and condition will also have a big factor on the value.
Dean Koontz – Odd Series
Odd Thomas was published in 2003 and had another 3 novels added to the ‘Odd’ series. Publishers Charnel House released limited editions of each so these signed and lettered editions are valuable and very sought after.
No Country for Old Men
Cormac McCarthy has had some of his wonderful work turned into excellent, award winning films in recent years bringing him the recognition he deserves.
Signed first editions and numbered deluxe editions still hold quite a bit of value.
It: The 25th Anniversary Special Edition
Often seen as Stephen King’s finest work, IT has also been the subject of a new, blockbuster film with a second instalment due soon.
The books 25th anniversary was celebrated with a special edition which, when signed, could be worth thousands.
His signed work has a host of fans all eager to snap it up so being able to buy them should be taken advantage of.
Limited editions are usually a good bet to hold their value, if the book becomes popular in the following years you might also see that value rise. Having the eye to see which books will do well and picking up the books could be a great investment.
If the book enjoys a successful film release this can also boost the value with a whole new audience that might not have been aware previously.
