Listen… there is a reason, but holy crap. Chances are the Lynyrd Skynyrd coffee table book cost more than your coffee table.

The $700 book is “The Leather and Metal Edition.” It’s a supersized edition (375mm square) bound in recycled leather and presented in a metal slipcase.” (bravewords.com) 50 numbered copies are all that will be made and each has been signed by Gary Rossington shortly before his passing. Those books have already sold out.

Good News! There are still some copies available of the $385 Lynyrd Skynyrd book. Bravewords.com describes The Deluxe Collectors Edition: “features a recycled leather spine and comes in a special, printed slipcase together with a poster, and collectible giclee print.” Only 450 copies of this book will be available. Moreover, the books are also numbered and signed by Gary Rossington. If you’d like to pick up a copy before they’re gone, rufuspublications.com is where you can enter your preorder.
Can I Get The Lynyrd Skynyrd Coffee Table Book For Less Than That?
Yes. Pronounced, The Standard Edition “measuring 30cm square and running to more than 340 pages, will be a hardback book with a matt laminated, foiled, and embossed cover.” The Standard Edition runs about $115. All editions are scheduled to ship in late Fall.
If I’m being honest, I can’t blame them for selling the book for $700. There are 50 numbered copies that are signed by Gary Rossington. Furthermore, I find it surprising that the $385 version still has any of the 450 copies left. I may have to ask if they have a layaway program. From coffee table books, let us segue way into coffee…
