We are down to the final few hours on Larry's Complete Elmore Volume II: Black & White Kickstarter campaign. The project has done very well, achieving stretch goals for an expanded book printed in the USA, a studio open house in 2016 and a number of bonus prints (I think we'll hit the full 15 prints before this closes.) Larry is thrilled!
If you haven't pledged yet, there's still time to get in! The project closes at 12 noon EST (4 pm UTC) on June 11th. The Kickstarter price on the standard hardback edition books ($49) is 33% off the price he will have it for at conventions and through his web page ($75). The campaign sales gives him an idea of what quantity to have printed, and the more he prints the cheaper the per-unit cost is, ere the discount. After the campaign, the costs of storing, managing and transporting inventory factor in and he will ask full price from then on.
The slipcase being offered through this Kickstarter is also exclusive to backers--Larry will only order what we need plus a few spares to cover lost/damaged mailings. Slipcases will NOT be available after this campaign.
Larry is still planning to order the full run of 500 limited edition leatherback books. The extras not spoken for by backers of this campaign will likely be made available at conventions until they run out.
Thanks again for your interest in Larry's art and projects! This is very likely his last Kickstarter project for some years. He does have in mind a more story-oriented book sometime down the road, but nothing in the near future. The best way to stay current with Larry is to find him on Facebook, either follow him directly:
or follow his official fan page:
We are working on a new website that will feature an active blog where Larry can post about his current projects, convention appearances and things like that, plus have an easy-to-use store for ordering prints and books, hopefully live around July:
Best Wishes, and thanks again! --Larry and staff.
