First! IF YOU HAVE MOVED OR WILL BE MOVING: no worries! We haven't sent out the backer survey yet. We'll be doing that when we're closer to shipping, so we'll have everyone's most up-to-date addresses. Move as much as you want up until that point!
So. YOU GUYS.
This evening, in a printing press in Indiana, the book-binding process will begin. This continues over the weekend (there's a lot of books!) and then they get shipped to the distributor in Texas on Monday. Giving a generous two weeks for the shipping (large loads travel slow) that puts us at June 26th when the books arrive at the warehouse. Shortly after that I'll be flying down to sign them thousands and thousands of times, and shortly after that, we'll start shipping out everyone's packages. This puts us in the beginning of July, but MAN it looks like these will be out the door soon. These books will live in your house soon. You guys. It's going to be so great.
You know what else will be arriving at the same time?
YORICK SKULLS. Those will be arriving at another warehouse around the first week of July too. Are they the cutest? They are. They are the softest and the cutest. They are the best way to contemplate your mortality ever. Here is me and Yorick, both smiling a toothy grin. The Yorick skulls are big so they'll be shipping separately, direct from Squishable in NYC! So if you're getting a Yorick skull, good news: you get to open two packages in the mail! One will have a plush human skull inside it!
Also! Here's a reminder that if you missed the Kickstarter, you can still preorder the book here! You get 728 pages of PURE FREEBASED FUN for only $28.95! We had originally thought we'd be able to sell these books at the $20 price point, but that was when we thought the book would be 300 pages shorter and not printed in full colour. The extra $8.95 is still totally worth it, I PROMISE. It's the prettiest book. THE PRETTIEST.
If you missed the poster, that's available for preorder too, and we'll see about getting the Yorick skulls available soon!
tl;dr: books are being bound, skulls are being shipped, ahhhhhh
