Update #19

The hour is almost upon us!

Comment

The wait has been long. For you, and certainly for us. But we are excited to let you know that the book should be shipping from our printers in Kansas City on January 8th or 9th, and in our hands a couple of days later. Mailing supplies are arriving now, and we'll start packaging up your books as soon as we get our hands on them. Thank you so much for your patience and support of the project this the past year. We really couldn't have done it without you.

Now, a couple of pieces of housekeeping. If you have moved since we sent out our survey, please be sure to let us know. A number of you have written in to say, hey, I moved, but we'd hate for any of you to fall through the cracks.

Austin folks, if you can wait a couple of days, we have secured Guzu Gallery on Saturday, January 18th from noon to 4 pm. We'd love to save on shipping costs and lay the book on you in a festive atmosphere. Also, a number of the Austin-based art contributors will be on hand for a book signing, so you can make your collectors item even more collectible. Be looking for an official Facebook event invite for that soon!

If you came in the a level that gets you a digital copy of the book, have you claimed it yet? Again, drop a line if you need the download code again so that you can get it for free.

Finally, I'd like to say a word about why I love Kickstarter. It's a great ecosystem for nurturing one of a kind projects, the kinds of things that make all of our lives richer. To that end, I'd love to take the opportunity to alert you to a couple of great Austin-based projects.

One is from my good friend Michael Joplin. The Return of the Blue High Machine is, well, it's a remount of one of the best pieces of theatre I've ever had the pleasure to see and participate in here in Austin. Or anywhere really. It's a professional wrestling, it's theater, it's amazing. Disclosure--I am assisting in the production of this show.

And for you fashion lovers, Rekh & Datta: A Modern Block Print Collection is a very ambitious and worthwhile project. Both of these are in their final couple of weeks and could use just a little extra boost to make their goals. We'd love it if you checked them out.

All the best, and here's to a marvelous 2014 to all of you from me, Brenner, Marc, and the rest of the Presidential Losers crew.

After a lot of work finding the right platform and design and printer, we're happy to announce that the digital download of the book is now available to our backers and to the public at large. You can find the book at https://gum.co/presidentiallosers for sale at $10. For those of you who came on at a level that gets you this digital version, we'll send you a message shortly on how to download the copy for free.

We were so excited about this, we wanted to get it out to you tonight, even though it's late on a Sunday night and we expect it might go unnoticed for a while.We've also got the files for the physical book ready to go and will be uploading them to the printer tomorrow morning. They are telling us it's about a 30 day turnaround. Hopefully they will be to us by mid-November so that we can get the physical copies of the books out to you for the holidays. We'll be sure let you know how that goes.

All the best, and be expecting a follow up email soon for how to get this as a backer for free. Hope this makes you as pleased as it's making us.


Update #16

PDF out this weekend, books by Xmas

Comment

Hey gang, sorry for the belated update. Just wanted to let you know that the pdfs of the book will be released to backers this weekend--should be Friday, or Saturday at the latest.

And we're doing everything we can to make sure that I have printed books in hand by December 1, so that I can start shipping then and everyone can get their orders in time for the holidays.

Links to the electronic download coming via separate update in a couple days.
