The Book Update (Starring Doc Newsom) - Video!

Posted by Greg Rucka (Creator)

"Doc" Newsom received the test copies of the trade yesterday, and recorded this little video to show all of you how they came out. All three versions of the trade are presented here (The Book in Cloth Covers, The Style to Which She is Accustomed, and The Rare & Royal), and I've got to say... they look very, very pretty.

These are the books you guys helped us make.

These are the books as we'd imagined them at the start.

They're now real, and by the end of March, we should have them in hand to be able to start sending out to all (well, most, I mean some of you went digital only *ahem*) of you.

Check it out!

And there was much rejoicing!

Hold fast!

      Beautiful! Will there be copies to buy? I never thought about wanting to get copies as gifts for others until right now.

      Dang, now I'm even more sorry I wasn't here soon enough to grab myself a 'Rare & Royal', since that looks gorgeous.

      @ Brad - can you suggest any Steampunk shows you think would be best to attend? It's something we've been discussing, but there are a LOT of them, and we're really not sure where to go!

      These are gorgeous. It's going to get its own special place in my collection; I only have one other signed item, so this will always be extra special to me.

      Having poured your Kickstarter bounty into these beautiful editions, please, please, please make whatever spare copies; sure to become instant collectors items; available to those outside of your Kickstarter circle of supporters: FINANCIAL SOLVENCY IS NOT CRAVEN PIRACY! And try to make at least ONE appearance at a Steampunk Convention, gang: their tent must be big enough to include Lady Sabre! Hold fast!

      These look absolutely gorgeous, gents. I opted for the Rare and Royal edition, and getting a look at it for the first time, I couldn't be happier.

      Really excited for the book. Looks AMAZING.
