Hi everybody! 

Just thought I'd drop a line on the status of reward fulfillment. We really are almost there out of over 1,000 backers, we have fulfilled about 90% of the rewards due.

The ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP TWO tier rewards have now been packed and shipped. If you are an ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP TWO backer and haven't received your book, please let us know and we'll figure out what the issue is.

Same guys for the BOX BROWN - IN YOUR OWN DREAMS tier. These should all be in their happy homes. If you haven't received yours, pleased be in touch.

The ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP ONE bookplates are still in process, but are now very close to being finished. Paul Pope went out of town, and hasn't been able to receive them. However, he's coming back next week, and should be able to sign and send the books by the end of the month. He's the last of the eight artists signing these bookplates. These should all be packed and shipped by the end of the month, so if you're an ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP ONE backer, expect your book in early July. Same goes for most of the remaining sketch editions.

The unfortunate nature of these things is that the people who've given us the most support -- the highest level backers -- have the most complicated reward tiers, so they end up getting fulfilled last. We really didn't accurately predict how much time it would take to get sixteen very busy people to sign over 100 bookplates. Our apologies for the wait, and our profound thanks for your patience and support. We really are getting closer every day.

Be well, everyone. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

      Thanks for the update...! Such are the travails of signatures, but thanks for keeping us apprised!

      Sorry, I should have mentioned this -- all the single signature tiers are also included in the box with the ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP ONE bookplates. So they will go out with those, imminently!

      Hi Theresa -- the Allred signed books are in the same package with the ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP ONE, so they should be going out by the end of the month.

      Martha, as part of the ALL KINDS OF SIGNED GROUP ONE tier, your book will be going out very soon -- should be the end of the month.

      The Cliff Chiang books are also in the process of being sketched, and can be expected on a similar time frame.

      Brandon has still not finished drawing his print, but assures me it will be done soon.

      I hope that answers all your questions! Thanks for hanging in there.

      I'm in the same boat as Danielle! At least now I can take solace in the fact that I'm not alone, so I'm less worry about having somehow been missed. I'm greedy to get my hands on this, but in no way have I lost the faith or excitement of its eventual arrival!

      Hi Andrew, thanks for the update. I just needed one little signature - YUKO SHIMIZU's. Could you let me know the status of that bookplate/shipping? (Or are you waiting for Yuko to draw her 5 sketches for all of the higher tier $300 pledges?)

    6. Theresa A Ames on June 19, 2015

      Hi Andrew - Still waiting for my order! Please advise when it might be sent - Thanks!

      I'm loving the book! Can you provide a status on the Brandon Graham print?
      Thanks!
