It wiggled, and a bonus.

Hello wonderful people.

Your books are underway.
Most of them, at least.
Some already arrived, but a few haven't left yet.

I am sad to say, we are running a few days late, and some of you won't receive the book in time for Xmas.
Every effort was put to achieve the time goal, and even more efforts were put in delivering the best possible quality.
The assembling of the books, with the lace binding and the numbering and sleeving and boxing and boxing again... has taken longer than anticipated.
Shipping is very fast though. Right now, books are literally flying all over the world :)
We're just a few days off, but there was no wiggle room.
It wiggled.

Also, I am not in a position to hand over tracking number individually. I get them in batch, in an unprocessable format that prevents me from automating this step.
I will try to send individual confirmation emails.

I do have good news though.
The first one is that the book is gorgeous. I have received my copy, and it's all we were expecting, quality and craftsmanship wise.
I'm still not posting pictures as I don't want to spoil it, but trust me, it's right there at the top.
If you have received yours, please, do share your thoughts, good or bad (as if !).

The second news is that with every single book, you will receive an extra 30x30cm print of one of the images from the book. For free, bonus.
I can't make up for lost time, but I can make it a bit sweeter :)

Thank you again to all of you,
just a bit more patience.

Colourfully.
Clementine.

      Book received but print is not enclosed......is it coming separately ? Book is absolutely stunning but would greatly appreciate an update on the print as have gotten a frame made especially, many thanks, Paul Cowderoy.

      Received the book and it came out great. Does the extra print come separately?

      I received my lovely book today. Saying it is beautiful is really an understatement, it really is moving to my spirit to see his beauty displayed by your art.

      I received my book today, and…

      "you can call it the unexpected, or you can call it… WOW!"

      I am over the moon. Thank you so much, for this wonderful gift. I'm so happy we could all help out in our small part to make something big.

      Thank you Clementine! I received my 'trio' just a few hours before heading off for Christmas. Won't be opening until I'm with my sisters on Christmas Day, very excited! �

      Thanks so much for the update. You really have gone over and above my wildest dreams with how you have been so conscientious all the way through this amazing project.
      And that’s before I’ve even seen the book !
      A small delay on something like this is completely understandable, and add in logistics at this time of year and the fact they are moving now is exciting news.
      Have a fantastic Christmas

      Clementine,

      thank you for #update 14!!

      I think everybody agrees that you take really, really good care of everything and I appreciate that very much. I can't wait to have my copy of your book in my hands. I understand that you can't control that we all receive the book before Christmas. If not it will be a great old or new year's present! Anyway, many thanx again for making this special book, giving us the chance to buy one, updating us constantly and....for the unexpected bonus! I wish you and your family a merry Xmas and all the best for 2018! Love from Holland. Pascal

      Thank you, Clementine! The personal updates from you are a wonderful way to keep us all in the know. I have been waiting for the mail man every day. Thank you for the unexpected bonus. So thoughtful and generous. I do hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year! I must also add, as a side note, that my beautiful grand baby shares your name. Now I have two precious Clementines in my heart. Many thanks,

      Always,
      Charity
