What's new and what's done and what's coming...

Posted by Sethgodin (Creator)


All the art for V is. The text for V is. The cover and back cover and the rest, too.

All the text for Icarus. Copyedited. Done.

Every bit of the behemoth. The layout, the design, the type, the color, the words, the choices, the covers. It's at the printer.

All of the LP, which is stunning to behold.

The layout and design and cover for the abridged edition of the behemoth.

The sponsor list for the big book and the Icarus book. Edited and finalized.

A few of the secret additions we're building.

But not the cover for Icarus. Not yet. We've done more than a hundred. Thanks to all who chimed in, particularly Mary Louise for some great links.

The rollout strategy is still in the works, too.

It was a stunningly great eight weeks of churning and burning and writing and inventing. Thank you for letting me do this!

Within a week, I will be asking all of you for your shipping info. Watch for it!

PS here's a cover we won't be using.

      Seth et al, Just checking to see if request for addresses was sent out. I recently changed my email address and did not want to miss anything.

      Really looking forward to this Seth. I have read 7 of your other books and all were GREAT!

      I like this cover. Seeing the sharpie with the print the way it is makes me wonder what it would look like as a "Newspaper Blackout" style in the vein of Austin Kleon's work.

    5. Ben Nesvig on

      I kinda like that cover.

      I thought of a lit candle where the wax is very drippy (all aglow with orange and yellows) sitting on a simple mahogany table as the cover photography. Then a copy of the book with only plain title "The Icarus Deception" resting next to it with spectacles like Woodrow Wilson used to wear. *smile*
