A quick word about international orders as you might have noticed this project is only being offered in the US. I'd like to make it available internationally as well, but shipping can be absolutely nutty expensive (we're seeing costs of $50 and up for shipping just one book, yikes!) and hard to predict actual costs in advance, especially 4 or 5 months in advance of when they'll actually be ready ship. But all that said, if an international backer wishes to claim a book today on the condition they will agree to cover actual shipping costs once we're ready to ship the books, we're fine with that. We can sort out those details when the time comes...
Still though, maybe the best bet for you folks across the pond or further is to have your book sent to a friend with a US address to pick up, or have them bring, the next time one of you visits the other. Wouldn't hurt to have a nice book to settle into on the long flight, no?
Thanks for your patience and understanding on this.
Yes. Kickstarter rewards aren’t structured to allow for local pickup, so go ahead and pay the shipping for your reward level for now. We’ll be in touch after the campaign ends and for every local pickup we will include a full cash refund for the shipping you had to pay. It’s more convenient for us, and saves you a few dollars as well. Win, win.
No. For as long as I can recall I’ve had a sometimes awkward policy of refusing to name locations in my art. One reason for my restraint is respect. As a lifelong surfer, I know the frustrations that crowds can bring. As a lifelong lover of the outdoors, I also know the damage that we can collectively do to the natural beauty of a place when we arrive en masse. Many places I paint are vulnerable to both of these problems and out of respect for those that live there and seek regular solace in these off-the-beaten path settings, I make every effort to celebrate their beauty without handing the keys to the kingdom over to the Legions of the Unjazzed, to borrow a phrase from Phil Edwards.
