Hello to you, beloved Kickstarter backers!
Well, here we are - books have flown to all corners of the world, delighting children and children-at-heart on five continents. We've gotten fan mail in crayon, from school principals and children's hospitals, and many many wonderful photos of you all curled up on very cozy looking surfaces with your loved ones, reading together. From all of us here at Flamingo Rampant to all of you - thank you for all your lovely feedback.
A few notes, going forward:
1) At long last, and I am sorry for the delay - here are your coloring pages. To make it up to you for how long the digitization process took, we've included TWO sets of coloring pages (the first set from the 2012 Flamingo Rampant release AND this year's set as well. Download both of them here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qjk2tp6rmm4nn6g/AACh1gLflLthzcU4WgBTDA_Ia?dl=0
2) If you were expecting prints or original artwork, those will be mailed in the second week of January. Again I blame digitization, but the reason why is actually super awesome...
3) We're just about to go to contract with Edicions Bellaterra of Spain for a full set of Flamingo Rampant books in Spanish translation for 2016! So we couldn't let go of anything until we were confident we had ever file version they might need in best quality possible, which now we do. So we hope that you'll forgive us our delay (and not announcing it, which - if we're being honest - has a little more to do with this new baby than my strategic communications plan, but what can I tell you?).
4) Finally, just a note that Flamingo Rampant has started planning our next season of books. We'll be releasing six more, tentatively in the Spring of 2017, on a theme of Celebrations. Look forward to a baby shower book (featuring three parents, all superheroes), a birthday party book (introducing a seven-year-old with a big gay crush), a Shabbat dinner book (with the cutest lesbian bubbies you ever met), a Christmas book (in which two kids /try/ to fix their trans mom's ornaments so they have her new name), and more! So stay tuned!
Big flamingo love to you all,
