Having just returned from a trip to Berlin to oversee final production details with both our printer and distributor, HOLO's Creative Director Alexander Scholz can confirm: we're good to go! The inaugural issue of HOLO – now exceeding 200 pages – will go to press in early November and start shipping (with priority!) the first week of December. In the next round of updates we'll be revealing some glimpses into the magazine, details about the production process, and sharing news about our upcoming launch events in New York City and Toronto.

Thank you for your continued patience and support!

      Hi Aldo, when we were organizing our Kickstarter campaign we had every intention of printing and distributing from North America. After our campaign we began the many months of research and networking required to organize our production—and it turned out that Europe was very competitive for quality and price for both printing and shipping. The way our shipping fees have turned out sees us reaching into pocket for an (unplanned) several thousand dollars to ship American orders, breaking even for all other orders, and Germans that ordered through our Kickstarter campaign ended up being slightly overcharged. We apologize for the extra fee, but our distribution model was—of course—speculative at the time we launched our campaign. We’ve since adjusted our shipping fees in the online shop we opened over the summer.

      We hope this answers your question, and once again we thank you for your support!

      @Aldo: That's a point – for me the same, would be nice not to pay $15 for shipping inside Berlin…

      Wait, what? It's printed in Berlin? Then why am I paying extra for shipping outside the US? Please tell me it is not making a return trip over the ocean...
