Ghost are known for special, limited edition items that have been tied to its various album releases – an 8-track edition of Ceremony & Devotion, and for Prequelle, a 7-inch die-cut-as-rats vinyl disc of the album’s first single “Rats,” offering the album on a variety of different coloured cassette tapes, and the lenticular cover for Prequelle’s special vinyl edition as well as five alternate covers for the retail edition. On September 27, Ghost will release a plethora of limited, exclusive items tied to the Prequelle album and world tour: the Deluxe Collector’s Edition, Prequelle Exalted, with only 5000 sets produced.

Included in the Prequelle Exalted Deluxe Collector’s Limited Edition will be:
* Prequelle Limited Edition Transparent Orange with Black Smoke Coloured Vinyl
* 60-page arena tour photo book, hardbound and wrapped in black gator skin
* Exclusive die-cut Prequelle artwork with a 12-page booklet featuring brand-new, mind-blowing illustrations
* Four 12″ X 12″ live photo prints
* Bonus 7″ with two Ghost rarities

For the arena tour hardbound photo book and the exquisite, suitable-for-framing 12″ X 12″ prints, Ryan Chang photographed Ghost on tour over the course of a year, documenting the band’s live performances throughout Europe, the UK, Canada, and the United States, including the Special Guest spots on Metallica European “WorldWired” Stadium tour this summer. The 12-page booklet of new prints was created by Ghost’s longtime visual collaborator Zbigniew M. Bielak, offering 10 stunning illustrations, each one a visual representation of the 10 songs on Prequelle.
