Have a question?
Just read the latest update - informative and keeps updated with timescales - looking forward to reading it
Where can I get a receipt for the amount pledged?
Just finished the survey and added the purchase of another book to be dedicated. How do I enter the dedication for this second book? I would like it to be different than the first one I ordered.
Just finished the survey. Greatly looking forward to receiving the book. Great little pins included in the Add-ons section. I order 4 of them. Shame there was no extra stickers offered in there though. Any chance of there being a change to include these?
Unfortunately I cannot work out the math of the site the latest mail is directing me to: Update Nr. 2 said it was possible to order additional books from the First Edition at $89 apiece. Accordingly I pledged for two additional copies but all I see now are books from the Continuation Series whose prices do not match my pledge. Can you help please?
They have not sent out the backerkit survey (one where you will enter your shipping address, dedication info, and confirm your order) to anyone but If you pledge for a reward tier that includes having your name credited in the book, please use the form below and fill it out, asap

Hi, I didn't receive the survey for my delivery info, I searched my inbox/junk and I didn't find anything.
Amirf — you can simply enter the names of the people you would like us to dedicate the book to on the form at the link in the email we sent you.
@Louis: Thank you very much - this is a very nice touch especially as you surely are quite under pressure re the production.
Hi Louis. I pledged for the Book: First 100 Signed & Dedicated reward tier on two accounts. If I plan to dedicate both copies to a third party, how do I submit their names to you?
Dieter — you can add names for your other books that you ordered and that you intend to give as gifts. Just enter them on the same line as your name, separated by a comma.
Wanting J — I'm assuming you are writing about dedications. If you would like your dedication in a language that is not English (or German), please make sure to spell it clearly and correctly for the linguistically challenged pair who will be signing!
Regarding names: I pledged for three copies, two of them intended to be a gift for friends. Would it be possible to have their names in the book as well (them being - unknowingly - supporters)? That would be great!
Hello, a quick question for the thank you section. Are you able to use other language besides English?
First link 404ed. Our bad. Corrected link:
When I click on the link for my backer number I get a 404 error.
Jon, the Survey is imminent. We are still working out final details of the logistics. As you can imagine, with the book being produced in Germany, with it being numbered, with two versions, with signed, unsigned, and dedicated copies, with buyers all around the world, and then with the add ons, logistics have become complicated. But we are almost there. Soon.
I still haven't received my Backer Survey. Are they still in the process of being sent out?
I can't wait to get this beautiful book. I, too, am wondering if you can provide a receipt for the backed amount since my CC has already been charged. Thanks!
Great to be part of such a pioneering project. Thanks to the both of you for creating such a unique and interesting book, both in its content and its process. Can't wait to get my copies!

Is it possible to get an invoice or a receipt for the backed amount?
Geoff, I'd like to know when the movie is coming out too. Or the HBO show. Stay tuned, you never know. Just getting here has been pretty unexpected.
Thanx for your support.
Congratulations on the amazing response to your Kickstarter book project. I look forward to receiving my very own work of art. Thank you for doing this!
Gentlemen, Good Luck with the completion of the book. Many are asking for the E-book, I just want to know when the movie is coming out?
Hi Tiffany. We will be using BackerKit to collect all the shipping info and make sure the orders are correct. So, yes, you're all set if you manually added $113 to your pledge. Everything will be confirmed after the campaign before final shipping.
I manually added the $113 to get the signed poster, will it be confirmed anywhere that you recognize that and will include as well? THANK YOU!
Jonny, we are currently working out logistics. But given the distribution of backers, it's likely that we will be shipping from both Berlin, where Erik is printing the book, and a fulfillment house in the US. Thanx for your support!
Thank you @Grazyna. I switched to the signed <100 that you freed up.
One book from the First 100 Signed & Dedicated is available for anyone! Me and my husband Adam have decided that we can share a single copy instead of two, and that it would be nice to allow someone else to enjoy it too :-)
Where will you be shipping out from? Just trying to think through the additional tax and duties conundrum... as could either collect in US or UK.
Thomas, at the moment we have no plans for an ebook version. Just fulfilling this Kickstarter is going to absorb all brain cycles for awhile. But never say never... Thanx for supporting us!
Hi, great project! Will there be an eBook-version later?
Hi Jon. You'll be able to request additional stickers after the campaign ends when we send out the surveys. We haven't yet calculated out the per sticker cost yet for people who want multiples.
If we increase our pledge appropriately, can we request more than one sticker? For example, if a sticker costs $4 and a pledge is increased by $8, this would mean an extra 2 stickers were requested. Thanks.
The live stream was really great to watch, though I couldn't catch it live. Eric on top form!
That said, as explained in the live stream, the printing process will be not only a lot of fun, but also a lot of stress and hard work! Watch the stream while you can still download it for great story and very energetic Erik in action :-)
1000 backers! Congrats :-)
Matt Mullenweg of Wordpress fame just backed Change Is Good. Cool!

@Louis : thanks !
@Louis & Erik: I think I saw one or both of you mention PDF earlier.
I was wondering if that was something that was still being considered. Due to costs and time, a digital copy would suit me best.
Benoit — as promised, an excerpt from Change is Good is now up on Wired! https://www.wired.com/story/this-excerpt-from-wired-cofounder-louis-rossettos-new-novel-parties-like-its-1998/
Thanks Adam. You're spot on. If you want to ensure a lower book # for multiple copies, then it's best to use multiple Kickstarter accounts. This is a limitation / feature of Kickstarter. Thanks for hacking around it.
Thank you for the update! Regarding "Additional Signed & Dedicated books will be numbered <1000" -- this makes sense for extra copies, obviously. But that is also why both me and my wife pledged for Signed & Dedicated option directly, so we both have our copies numbered <100. There are still 11 available in this range, folks! Get your own while you can :-)
Please see Update #2 about ordering multiple books.
Let us know if you run into any issues or have questions.
Benoit, thanx for the kind words. Your wish is our command. Excerpt coming up imminently. Stay tuned.
Adam and Dieter — We are working on levels with multiple copies. Stay tuned. And thanx for your support!
Hey Louis end Erik. I'm a big fan of your work.
Subscription to WIRED and saw Erik in the much acclaimed HELVETICA doc.
I just pledged for a copy of the book. I can't wait to read it.
In the meantime, and as an appetiser, i wonder if we could have a short glimpse of a chapter.
That'd be wonderful !
Same question, how to pledge if I want the second as a gift for someone? I don't think we can simply increase the pledge amount, especially for limited/signed copies. Oh, I know, I will ask my wife to pledge from her account :-)
