      They're great, thanks so much. I was expecting excellent artwork but they turned out informative, interesting and well researched as well. Looking forward to the Mesozoic!

      Got ours, thank you so much! And should've sprung extra for the ammonoid pin, but as it is, super pleased. Saving the books for my kiddo's birthday in 1 month, and the tote will be for me ;) Thank you thank you!

      I just got my package today and everything is just lovely. The books are perfect and very well done. Thank you so much for doing this, and I can't wait to see the rest of the series!

      Good to know one of the packages arrived. With my overly active anxious imagination, I was picturing all the packages getting lost in the mail. (Quick status update on the mailing: I still have 62 packages to send. I'm thinking, I may get everything out by next Monday.)
      Also, very glad you like the books. I've been staring at this artwork for so long that all I see are mistakes now.

      The books arrived today and they were amazing. My Spouse loved the feel of the books and said "This is how all books should feel". I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.

      I am planning on covering the Mesozoic and Cenozoic (although I probably won't do the Quarternary). But given it's taken me one year to draw one period, it'll probably be a while before I have those eras done. I'll try to draw faster, but worse case scenario, the Mesozoic won't be done until 2019 �

      I'm really looking forward to receiving these. Are you planning on covering the other Eras as well?

      Loraine us that on your phone or tablet. If it is look in your download folder. Android handles downloading pdfs funny.

      I'm so excited about these books! I've been fascinated with prehistoric life since I was old enough to read. I want to keep these for my kids (if I ever have them) & hope the books inspire the same fascination & delight in them :)

      Hi! Just found this project and so glad I did!! It's a great idea and the art looks amazing! However is there anyway to get just the book series and the "Tree of Life" print? I'm not too interested in all the other extras and going for the first package with the print seems a little expensive if I don't really want all the other stuff.

    16. Estrella Vega Creator on September 12, 2016

      Thank you. Yes, the t-shirt design is the same as in the tote bag, but printed with blue glow-in-the dark ink. As for t-shirt color, I offer in one color for simplicity's sake but if you have a color suggestion, I'm willing to listen (though colored t-shirts are usually a bit more expensive than white t-shirts) :)

      Hello, you have such a wonderful project that I am excited to back :D
      I was just wondering if there is any chance that we could see the t-shirt design (which, I am just guessing, might look the same as the one on the tote bag), and will it come in colors other than white?

    18. Estrella Vega Creator on September 12, 2016

      You mean like an animated ebook? I looked into it, but that's a little bit outside of my skill set at the moment...It also took 8 hours for my computer to render the above 2 minute long video, so doing a whole animated book may just make my laptop explode :)

      The video is great! Would you be able to put together a full book (of all 5 books of course) with the animated biota (flora, fauna, and fungi)? Perhaps as a follow-up project...

      I just created a new pledge level for two book series with no extras. Just go to your account page and manage your pledges to "upgrade". Hope that helps.

    21. Chris McKitterick on September 8, 2016

      Lovely! How can we order two sets of the books, but without all the extras? I can't find a way to change the quantity to 2. Thanks!

      Lovely project! Fingers crossed for it reaching the goal!
