Ok everybody, ok!

The link to the PDF for everybody who donated more than 5 USD is forthcoming today; please let me know if you were one of the ones who has donated over 5 and haven't received it by Friday.

The other incentives, I've decided, will all go out at once, shipped in a bundle with the book preorders. Backers who are receiving physical incentives should be receiving a message asking for their addresses: the items will be shipped to the address you supply me with, not to the address associated with your Kickstarter account (unless they are the same of course).

The Rice Boy books are arriving around the end of August, any customs setbacks notwithstanding. I will be attending SPX in September, and that will be their debut to the world at large, but I should be able to get the Kickstarter preorders out the door and on their way to you before then.

I have received a few proofs, and you can have a look at them in this video I made: I've rented storage space for these things: this will be over 2 tons of books, and will fill the space of a cube 5 feet to a side. Whoa! These books are gorgeous, even the paperbacks; easily the most finely-produced physical item I have had any part in making. Thanks for your patience, they are almost here.

      I haven't rec'd the pdf file yet.

      Wow! Got my email about the PDF about an hour ago and the server is already down. Everyone must be downloading at once...

      I have also not received the link for the PDF yet. I sent an email through kickstarter last Saturday and have not been heard back.

      Nor have I.

      I'm having the same problem as Felderburg - responded to the survey to update my address for the hard copy but have not received any link for the PDF.

    6. Creator Felderburg on August 23, 2011

      Sent a message via Kickstarter, no reply yet. You say the PDF link should be coming, and to let you know if you donated over $5 and haven't received it. I haven't received it, via email or kickstarter.
