If you've enjoyed seeing the ridiculous level of care and research that went into our resurrection of Marcus Clarke's stories in Rumours of My Death and your first thought was to wonder if you could get yourself a piece of that action, then you're in luck.
Only a small number of the highly bespoke, letterpress-insert-filled, first editions of Hunted Down were created and circulated through Australian and international books and design communities.
But, in Clarke's own words, this little book is dedicated to you, dear reader and it would be remiss of us not to make it more widely available. Alas, we can't afford to create circus posters, beer coasters, and newspaper clippings for everyone, but the text and the in-page design is all here and at a reasonable price for such a slender volume.
On that note, it took some time to settle on the correct price for such a thing, especially when the cover already proclaims its value at 'ONE SHILLING'. So I looked up the 2016 value of one shilling from 1873. The latest data is from 2012 and, depending on how you calculate, can be translated to between $6.12 (as a commodity) and $544 (as a percentage of GDP, a story in itself).
Kind of makes $7.95 seem about right to me.
