Happy Labor (of Love) Day!

Posted by Locust Moon Press (Creator)

Hello friends! It's my pleasure to be able to post an update consisting of something other than simpering apologies and pleas for forbearance. Real progress is (finally) underway!

The bookplates have landed. All of the ALL KINDS OF SIGNED editions, including group 1, group 2, and groups 1 & 2, are packed up, posted and ready to go. That's a total of 67 fancy-pants bookplate signature editions, bundled with overflowing reward packages, sitting in a glorious stack in our art gallery.

Tomorrow they'll be in the hot little hands of the US Post Office, winging their ways all over the world straight to your door. Over the course of the next two weeks, we'll be packing up ALL of the signed-by-a-single-artist editions, and they'll be on their way too.

So if you're an ALL KINDS OF SIGNED backer and have not yet received an email with a tracking number, please message us and we'll figure out what's up. Your books and prints should be en route to you.

We're still waiting on a few things, like some of the sketch editions, Brandon Graham's print and a couple of pieces of original artwork. But we are asymptotically approaching complete fulfillment. 912 down, 124 to go. As always, a lot of the folks who backed us the most are receiving the most elaborate rewards, and therefore wind up waiting the longest. We're sorry about that.

Thanks again to everyone for your heroic patience and extraordinary support. As says the subtly self-deprecating motto of the South Eastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority, we're getting there.
