Here's the packaging! It's just like the normal stuff you get except it's all silver and shiny, like a spaceship (hm, I'm sensing a theme here). I don't know if you can read the sticker but it says "THE JOURNEY BEGINS" and then 1.11.11 is the date the book is released. I love that someone when out of their way to get cool packaging and stickers just for these books. :)
Here's the actual book. The cover is gorgeous. This is a paperback but on the back it shows you what the hardcover will look like. It will have a reversible book jacket (which is the coolest thing ever): one side is the normal cover, and the other is a blueprint of the ship.
This is the inside cover of Across the Universe and is the blueprint of the ship. I'm sure this will come in handy while reading the book.
As you can tell, I am so excited to read this book! But what makes it even better are the fun stuff that comes along with it: the packaging, the illustrations, etc. I feel like such a nerd being excited over this but I don't care :)
