This will be the last update you receive from me via Kickstarter. Again, thank you all for your help in bringing my "Autumn" book to life. As of today, all books have been shipped out!! US buyers can expect to receive your books within a week. International shipments should arrive in 1-2 weeks.
I appreciate your help in sharing the word about my self-published effort! Further orders can be placed here:
I am forever grateful!
P.S. - Stay tuned ... I hope to produce a book of b/w photography someday soon.
Fantastic news! The edition of 500 and the hand-made version of 10 are finished, and have finally shipped from the printer. Here's what the printer told me: the books left Iceland yesterday. They will make their way via boat to Boston ... which takes about two weeks. Then, it's another week across land to me in Montana. After hearing about the boat ride, the land trip may involve the Pony Express! I suppose this is appropriate for a book in today's digitized world.
Anyway, I appreciate your patience as we've been at the mercy of the printer's schedule. By the end of May, I will be shipping books out to all of YOU. I will be contacting each of you shortly to request an address for shipping.
"Autumn" is almost here. I have a few advance copies in my hands, and they turned out exactly as I had envisioned ... thanks to everyone involved.
Have a great weekend !
It's been a little while since my last update. I've been working hard behind the scenes. Here's the latest news ...
1) I sent the finished book design to my printer in Iceland today! I have no idea how long the production process is going to take, but the hard part is DONE. There will be a couple rounds of color proofing and tweaks, followed by printing and assembly.
2) The book is now going to be a printed hardcover. This significant upgrade is made possible by YOUR backing. Thank you. This book deserved a hardcover presentation.
3) I am now in the process of making 75 limited edition prints for my backers. I'll be contacting you when the book has been delivered - to ask for your shipping addresses. Prints and books will be delivered together.
That's all for now. You'll hear from me again when it's time to ship your rewards.
