      I can't get to all of your recent comment, but it ends with "beta users in..." I would so love to be a beta user - how can this dream come true?

      Hi all. Sorry for the ongoing delays, but I just posted a video update of the tool in action. We're making good, if not also quick, progress. Hopefully we're not more than a couple weeks away from getting our beta users in...

      Hi, how is the project going? Can we still count on the original plan? "With funding concluding March 1, we're aiming for a public launch in late spring or early summer."

      With Adobe's new move to a subscription based model, you may be a alternative to Indesign. Hmm, is desktop publishing a possible feature?

      How are things going? Totally stoked up! Thanks for your project. Also did everything get mailed our? Of so Mine my be lost in the mail, but the perks are not why I backed this great project. Thank you.

      The webinar unfortunately had no sound, except for a repeated "The webinar will begin shortly, please remain on the line." I believe I got the gist of it through the video alone though.

      For what it's worth, I did connect ten minutes late, which may have had a bearing on the problem.

      Thanks spudart! Sorry it wasn't clear on the survey form (I was trying to keep it short and sweet), but yes EVERY BACKER will receive the e-book commissioned from David Horvitz. We have everyone's email and can update them here as well, but will be sending out a download link to you all when it's ready. That said, it is a newly commissioned e-book from an in-demand artist, and so it may be some time before it's ready. We'll keep you posted!

      I am very excited to see this project taking off! I just got my "response needed" email, so I clicked through to fill out my information. I'm a bit concerned that A) The form never asked for my email address for delivery of the special e-book by artist David Horvitz; and B) The form never stated that I was going to get the UPDATE 2: special e-book by artist David Horvitz. The project page says that all supporters will get this special e-book, but the fulfillment form never mentions it, nor the mechanism by which the e-book will be delivered.

      Gareth, I don't see why not. We want e-books to be what *you* want them to be, whether that's riffing off historical forms or exploring new forms altogether.

      Could this be used for all forms of historically print publishing such as magazines, comics or newspapers?
