Have a question?
@Jim - I was wondering if there have been any updates on the art booklet that was to be sent out separately?
Hi, I was wondering if there have been any updates on the art booklet that was to be sent out separately?
@Jim - have sent you a message
@Thomas you can use the form in fieldworkfail.com or https://makisapa.com/pages/about
@Jim where can I find your email address?
@Thomas Hi Thomas, I never received your address. I can't ship a book without that ! I tried to contact you many times. Send me an email with your address please, I guess my emails directly arrive to your spam box.
I still haven't received mine in UK :(
@Caitlin Thompson - Jim contacted me privately and expedited a new copy to me which I picked up yesterday. It's fantastic - thanks again Jim! If he hasn't already I'm sure he will contact you.
I don’t know if it is Canada customs, Canada Post or the originating shipping service but post delays for me are not out of the ordinary on things I’ve Kickstarted. Hence why it took me so long to ask about my copy.
@Tracey Cress - I'm in Ontario too and I have not received mine either. :(
@Tracey Yes! I answer you by email
Has anyone in Canada received their book yet? I'm still waiting in Ontario.
Thanks for the clarification, Jim! Looking forward to receiving #2!
@Philipp Yes! Your other book should arrive soon
Received the parcel today in Florida! What a beautiful book!
(Sadly I received only a single book, instead of the two I pledged for. I am aware there's a survey coming, but just wanted to check whether you might have shipped each book individually?)
Got mine today in Hawaii! My students are so thrilled to have a story from our state!
Nevermind -- I found it in an update of 4 months ago!
Looks great on my big screen.
Hi Jim -- did the eBooks go out somewhere yet or did I miss a notice?
@Shanna @Alex @Eugene I'm happy you finally received them! Thanks for the patience!
Recieved @California. There was no reason to worry indeed!
I got my signed copy in Idaho today. My unit will appreciate this! It's nice knowing the woes of field work are universal.
Mine was finally delivered yesterday! (Arizona) It's amazing and I'm so happy to have gotten it! I think that it may have been delayed because of the weather along the coast. There are facilities in Houston that international shipments can go through (though usually they go through LA). It's just my best guess. Hopefully more of the west coasters will start getting theirs soon too!
@Eugene : I've been contacted by other backers from California, so you're not the only one... I hope it will arrive soon!
@Emily : Thanks for your patience!
@Susan: I'm glad you like it !!
No book at California- should I worry?
Got my book the other day. I LOVE IT! Thank you so much. It's wonderful!
In Hawaii and still haven't received the book yet. Trying to be patient! So excited!!
My book was delivered today. I love the artwork, and the shiny bits on the cover are a nice touch. This book looks great.
Thank you for putting it together and giving us backer a behind the scenes peak at the process.
The book looks great and is so much fun to read. Thank you!
Got mine today too -- really fun stories (& some good advice!) and love the drawings.
I'll enjoy reading through it a time or two before gifting it on to... haven't decided yet which young relative will be the lucky one. :-)
Received mine a while ago but kept forgetting to pop in here. Totally awesome, love it. My kids love the illustrations and the stories are great. Thanks for such.
Just wanted to say I received my book and I love it so much. This is my favourite Kickstarter campaign - Jim: you are one awesome artist and guy. I hope you have nothing but success in life. Thanks again for running such a fantastic campaign and creating this wonderful book that I will cherish forever.
@Andrew @Alex and @Lisa: Thanks for the good news!! :)
I received my items in New York. Fantastic! What a personal pleasure it has been to be on this journey with you. Thank you very much!
Jim, it arrived here in Idaho Saturday. Thanks again for putting this all together. My field crew is going to love this.
My book arrived in So Cal. Thank you so much, Jim! Merci beaucoup!
(and no problem for asking me the question, I recognize the books take a lot of time to arrive in the US... I've been told "12 workable days" as estimate time by the Postal office, and it's been a month now... but at least they seem to arrive now!)
@Alex : The book has just began to hit the US, a few backers started to received it 2 days ago, so I guess others will arrive during the next days !
Jim, I hate to be that guy but have you any idea when the books well hit the US? Lots of folks are saying good things so I don't want to get left out. Thanks,
@Victor : Il aura mis le temps! Merci pour le message !
@Antonio: I'm the one who should thank you for your support and patience!
@glint: Many ants and monkeys in the book, not enough mosquitoes. I should add stories with mosquitoes in a second volume !
Le livre vient d'arriver en parfaite état a San Sebastien (ESP).
Received it today in The Netherlands. It looks fantastic. Jim, thank you for this beautiful book (and for the campaign and your updates).
Oh and sign me up for a Fieldwork Fails part 2.
West Australian delivery arrived!
MY kids (and I) LOVE the little personalised message by the author. And the whole book is just brilliant. Thank you so much.
As far as I can tell, after reading this book, Ants seems to be the sworn enemies of field workers and they are possibly in cahoots with the monkeys and alligators.
@Floris : no idea, in every country it's different, and it seems to have little relevance to the distance. In Netherland - usually quite fast for delivery - most seem to have not received the book yet, I don't understand neither why it takes so long...
@Junelle : Thank you!
I still didn't receive my book (the Netherlands) do you know why I have to wait this long?
Just got mine in NZ! It looks amazing :D
Effectivement, les contributeurs français ont reçu dans leur grande majorité le livre, il me semble. Je vais voir si d'autres sont dans le même cas ! L'adresse est rue Eugène Jumin, c'est bien cela ?
Apparemment la plupart des backers français ont déjà reçu le livre, mais je n'ai pas eu cette chance. Avez-vous entendu d'autres personnes, résidant en France, dans la même situation ? (pour info : je réside à Paris).
Désolé pour le dérangement : j'ai lu avec attention le PDF et j'ai très hâte de découvrir le livre !
Bravo encore pour ce projet et merci beaucoup pour ce beau travail.
@Eva: Really sorry about the damages! I already started to use better cardboard enveloppes to ship the books because unfortunately you're not the only one to have received the book with some corners damaged, even with the cardboard protection I used. I'll offer something to all people with damaged books, when everybody will have received their packages. But thanks for your nice message!
@Andy Thanks! I'm glad she enjoyed the book :)
My copy arrived some days ago. And I think the book is absolutely lovely. The whole family enjoyed it. If you ever decide to make a sequel I will instaback it.
I just have a tiny comment, unfortunatelly, all four corners of the book was a little bit smashed in the mail (because that is the only way the Swedish mail company knows how to do it). It is just aesthetics, but in the future I suggest that you use a cardboard protection just a cm or two wider.
