Spring 2013 Now Available Online!

Hello Everyone!

We just wanted to let you all know that the Spring 2013 collection is now available at our online store.

Since the Limited edition Hardcovers just shipped we aren't listing them just yet in case there are any problems with transit to the backers who supported us for the campaign. 

We also wanted to let you know that we are trying out a new type of project with Benign Kingdom - the Midnite Monsters

It is our first set of books outside these seasonal collections and we'd love to do a lot more of these types of projects.

As always, if you're a backer and you haven't received your rewards yet, and are not a backer of the limited edition hardcovers, please message us so we can look into it. Thanks!

Limited Editions going out within the next week!

Hi everyone, 

As we reported the other week the USPS lost the signed bookplates for a while as they were making their way between creators. We finally got in the fully signed bookplates RIGHT before we had to leave for TCAF. Travel took a little longer than expected and we didn't make it home until yesterday afternoon. 

We're now working on getting everything packed up and will have all tiers that included a limited bookplate edition out within a week. Thanks again for your support!

Shipping Complete Except Limited Editions

We have completed shipping with the exception of limited edition hardcovers. The limited edition hardcovers are taking more time because the postal service lost the bookplates for nearly three weeks. Just as we were just about to reprint and start from scratch they found and delivered them. They are now being worked on by the final member of the team and will soon be in our hands for processing.

What this means for everyone else is - 

If you are domestic United States and you submitted your response to the kickstarter survey before April 1st you should have your books by now. If you are missing prints or other items let us know BY MESSAGING US (not commenting). We are handling any problems as they come in.

Thanks again for your support!

Shipping is half way done!

Hello everyone!

We've shipped out about half the rewards at this point. We're a little behind on the bookplate editions since the artists are so spread out for this season, but we still anticipate getting them all out by the end of the month. Woo!

In the next week or two we'll email everyone and make a backers only update with instructions on how to get your PDFs. Thanks!

Printing is Underway

Hi Everyone,

Ananth Panagariya and George Rohac went to the printer to do a press check to make sure the quality of the books was up to par. We posted a few short videos and images on our tumblr and twitter accounts.

We're also working through all the images to make a nice post here on kickstarter of the process of press checking a book and everything that went into it.

Thanks again for your support, once we have final delivery dates of all items we'll be sending out the complete backer surveys to get your delivery addresses, thanks!
