      No delivery. No communication. Nothing. It’s not even about refund or delivery any more. The very basic trust has been broken. I’ll remember this incident as an alarming lesson, and this person as an irresponsible one who is not worth any additional attention from me.

    2. Graham Burrows on May 15

      I'm so disappointed! Please send me a refund as this is unacceptable!

      Six month since your last update? Still no delivery here.

      I have sent messages in August, October and now again in May and have never received my book nor a response! This is no longer acceptable. We need answers or refunds.

      Hey Tom. How about a little update? Seems like a few people received books, but what about the rest of us?

    12. Cory Maggard on April 12

      thank you, finally got mine. funny how long it took that I wasn't waiting for it anymore. Though, it came in damaged (probably a freight) - hardcover chipped and broken... oh well.

      Got mine here in Chicago today. Perfect condition. It came by Media Mail, which I believe is notoriously slow. Hang in there everybody!

      Both books arrived today in perfect condition... Thanks Tom and team, wonderful addition to my collection.

    25. Taren Pang on February 26

      My copy just arrived in SF in pristine condition. Also shipped from Aurora, CO. Thanks, Tom and Team Skeehan. Christmas arrived a year late, but the wait was worth it! A beautiful book!

    26. Graham Burrows on February 25

      Still no book, still no update - extremely frustrating!

      Arrived Central Texas shipped media rate USPS from Aurora Colorado February 21st. Book slightly damaged looks like from tie down straps being pulled too tight across the cover.

    31. Poon Spoony on February 11

      No book... I would like a refund

    35. Noah Fang on February 5

      No book delivered. No replies to any email I sent. Very frustrating and disappointing.

    36. Graham Burrows on February 3

      @Peter Kaltenbach - I mentioned it to Kickstarter but their stance on this is that we have to deal directly with the creator! Not sure we'll get too far. The fact the book is available to buy via his website is a joke!

      Here's KS response:
      "I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing frustration with this project.

      If you are interested in getting a refund for this project, please reach out directly to the creator. While we work with creators to help them find funding for their projects, all money raised goes directly to the creator and is managed by the creator (with only a small fee passing through Kickstarter's hands).

      To get in contact with a creator, I recommend messaging them through our platform, leaving a comment on their page, or reaching out through their social channels or website (where they might be more readily available for questions).

      Though I can't assist directly with getting a reimbursement, I am here to help. Hiccups can happen along the way when bringing a creative idea to life, but that shouldn't turn into a bad experience for you as a backer. I hope this matter is resolved soon and am happy to help if you have any other questions or concerns."

      Very unprofessional, this does a disservice to the reputation of the designers of the region he was trying to represent. Was supposed to be a graduation gift now a year late, but now I wouldn't want this product to influence a young designer anyway. This was a very expensive e-book that I managed to pay shipping for. I am disgusted but will keep my comment respectful and considerate. Lesson learned.

      Has anyone else reported this project to Kickstarter? I would think the lack of any communication justifies reporting the creator.

    39. Ethan Chong on January 31

      No book. No response. Nothing least an update pls.

    40. Derek Burkhardsmeier on January 29

      havent heard an update in months. haven't had a reply in email in months.
      where is my product?
      where are you, will you respond to us?

      Tom. I think "Rachel" maybe took your money and forgot to deliver the books. It seems that she's now just as hard to get hold of as you are.

    42. David Wood on January 23

      Hi everyone - if you don't receive your book you can always "buy one" online !!!!….

      Tom - get your act together.

    43. David Wood on January 23

      Where's my book! Confirmed my US address on October 2nd. Got an immediate response from "Rachel". Still no book. Really?

    44. Todd Budin on January 22

      I think we should also post on Skeehan's facebook page

    45. Todd Budin on January 22

      Same here in Colorado. No book, no responses.

      Instead of posting here, just pester him on FB until he provides updates. Contact his collaborators who are listed on his KS page. He hasn't been here since beginning of November.

      Still nothing here from SF either
