First Editions: Dracula is a project coming soon from the creators of Unearthed - The Bram Stoker Rare Papers. Dacre Stoker and Vic Nadata have teamed up again with something that is sure to excite every bibliophile out there.
For the first time, Dacre Stoker, great grand nephew of Bram Stoker has agreed to allow a hand aged reproduction of his personal family edition of Dracula. This edition from 1897 has been in the family for generations and one of the first copies ever created hinted by its missing advertising pages.
Each book goes through a multi-step antiquing process that gives the amazing look of age, but without the warped pages some unrefined methods may produce. Finishing touches include a touch of scent as well as simulated dust that produces a puff when the book is closed. No detail has been overlooked.

Those that sign up have a chance to pickup one of the early bird editions at a discounted rate!
Our goal is to give readers and collectors the ultimate experience. Imagine sitting back on a crisp fall day and opening a first edition classic for an afternoon of reading. This dream can now become reality with First Editions by Gemini Artifacts. In October 2020, Gemini Artifacts and Dacre Stoker, great grandnephew of Dracula fame Bram Stoker, successfully kickstarted UNEARTHED - The Bram Stoker Rare Papers with incredible results. Funded in 24 hours and earning a Project We Love Badge, Unearthed went on to become 455% funded and products delivered ahead of schedule. Gemini Artifacts is back to reinvent gothic horror literature. We are bringing the museum to you.
The two books available are the 1897 First Edition from the UK and the 1899 First Edition from the USA. Each offering has been meticulously recreated using the finest techniques and materials. Both are available in a non-aged Virgin variant.
