      Hi, I know this May be a bit late but I was just wandering if there is any update on the feature length documentary, was looking forward to watching this and discovering how it all came together.

      Hi, Ian.

      You selected the $25 pledge, which was for the EXPLICITUS EST LIBER book. We did try and explain this to you in your emails to us on Kickstarter.

      We're sorry that you selected the wrong pledge. Giving away TOME for free or at a massively reduced price wouldn't be fair to all those that have supported the project and purchased the book.

      We're happy to provide you a refund for the EXPLICITUS EST LIBER book. Simply return it to us, and we'll send the refund.

      Back when I first gave you money, the offerings were different. After I received my book, not the TOME I'd thought I"d invested in but a behind the scenes glossy promotional piece, I contacted you and received a dismissive reply about wanting more money. I protested this and got no reply. This feels like a bait and switch, frankly, and rubbish follow up customer service.

      From the $20 shipping charge for a package with a postage label accounting for an $11 charge to the wilds of Vancouver, BC, to the fact that sometime shortly after your campaign went live (when I invested) your project went from $25 gets you TOME and a free CD to getting a promotional piece and no "free" CD.

      I'm disappointed, feel ripped off, and will not support your further endeavors. I'm also lodging complaint through Kickstarter / Amazon to see what recourse, if any, I might have. And lastly, I've broadcast this through the usual social media channels, so some of the artists in you book, and others in their circles, will see my little fist pumping the air with outrage and disappointment.

      Thanks for making no effort to meet me in the middle to find some sort of compromise or resolution. Of course it's better to simply dismiss me as an idiot, I mean, who am I, right? Just someone who is now annoyed and likely to tell every person I know how poorly this experience went. Always the best thing from a marketing perspective, right?

      My "Meridiana of Pope Sylvester II" showed up damaged via shipping and I was told to take it up with the post office. Also, and this is completely my fault for misreading, I thought I'd be getting the book as well at that Backer level. Hope my experience with your "Lust" thing goes better than this one.

      TOME and explicitus are breathtaking, the format, printing and binding are top notch. An overall success. Mine arrived in perfect condition. I didn't find the TOME2 postcard though, did I miss it? I suppose it would be put in the prints package? Is not an issue really, I'd be cool if you could mail me the link to the teaser. Thanks Menton, Kasra, Ben & Nick

      Creator Chris Hughes on April 15, 2013

      A couple of people have mentioned shipping - mine also had slight damage.

      Next time - either wrap the book in a sheet of bubble wrap OR put it in a giant bubble padded envelope, then add the corners on and put in a box.

      Its the book bouncing around inside the box during shipping which damages the corners (even with corner covers), and that should solve it - any impacts should be absorbed by the outer box > corners cover > bubble wrap so it will help minimise the 'my box is fine but my book is not??' scenario.

      Just a suggestion - i've bought and sold far too many things from guitars to comics - people would rather pay extra and wait a bit longer if it means the postman has less chance to damage what they are buying !

      No worries, Ruvis. We know that some packages took longer to get out and that many of the international packages are taking a long time to be delivered. So I'm going to be making an update through the TOME Kickstarter today letting everyone know that we'll be extending the date for the TOME 2 sneak peek. No one will be excluded from taking a look!

      Thank you for being patient with us and the postal service.

      Igor, if you have an alternative suggestion for shipping internationally, then we're all ears! Shipping costs more than doubled for TOME since the end of our Kickstarter, and we're trying desperately to figure out a less expensive option for TOME 2. Please email Nick Idell with your ideas: nick@44FLOOD.com

      I dont know if im imagining it but i remember early on in the kickstarter menton3 releasing an image of a sculpt he had created for tome and saw there were some rewards featuring sculpts by menton3 and ben templesmith which would appear in the book. Unfortunately i dont know if it was mye but i couldnt see them in the book. Only reason i ask is at the time i couldnt pledge enough for one but was wandering if they were still available asi would be interested in possible purchasing a few.

      TOME was waiting for me in the mail today and I must say, I love it. I have the CD playing in the background right now and it's quite lovely as well.

      I had no problems with shipping but I did have one complaint. There are about 7 pages marred with an inexplicable crease about three inches long near the middle of the pages. They look like someone put something with a sharp edge in the book and SLAMMED it shut on it. Normally this would be inconsequential for the most part but this crease wound up right in the middle of of 4 pages of Templesmith's full page artwork and it has cut spots of white into the otherwise gorgeous artwork.

      This flaw aside though, I'm excited to peruse through this with a closer eye and eagerly await LUST.

      Creator 44FLOOD on March 12, 2013

      Thank you, Taylor! Glad you liked it! For the shipping, there's only so much you can do. Getting a custom-made box, having the book shrink-wrapped, using frame corners, and layering a protective sheet was overkill by most estimations. What the shipping people do with it afterwards is totally beyond our control. Ideally, these books would be hand delivered, and everyone would come to Chicago to pick them up!

      I'm sure as we move forward with TOME 2 that we'll figure out some new tricks to mitigate any damage, no matter how slight and out of our control.

      I also just got my book. It is stunning and more than a little intimidating!. One thought though on the shipping...in future on books of this size you may want to use styrofoam for the corners. Mine had a somewhat mashed corner that I think foam might have protected better. Beyond that, an outstanding achievement! I cannot wait for the party either! Any of us that are attending and also going to C2E2 will be VERY tired come Monday morning!
