There are various advantages to modern academic life, but getting your name on beautiful books isn't usually one of them. I've published a lot of scholarly works over the course of my career, from journal articles to book-length monographs, and I've become resigned to the low, low standards of academic publishing: a meaningless geometric cover design that maybe consists of a purple triangle on a white background or something, followed by pages of eye-destroying print. So it was with some pleasure that I received my print copy of the adventure that I rather randomly ended up writing for D&D5, The Chapel on the Cliffs.
It is a very pretty book.
It contains many pictures of skeletons.
It has interior illustrations.
It has a proper page layout, with sections and bullet points, and also a friendly zombie.
It has statistics which I do not understand, because I don't actually play D&D5 and just wrote it in B/X and entrusted the system conversion to the editor, but they all look very statistical.
And the special edition version even includes an artist's sketchbook!
