Risks and challenges

Deluxe signed limited editions are the most likely to have some delays due to the many steps of pre, during and post-production. The books will be printed then shipped to a specialty binder to bind then the slipcases are built separately. We have listed a delivery estimate of March 2018 for deluxe editions offered in this campaign but supporters should be aware that delays could be incurred and if they are will be posted in an update here in this Kickstarter campaign. Updates can also be found in the Production Updates blog on our website.
