Dear backers,

We have entered December and the books have just reached Sweden!

Unfortunately some of the extras-manufacturer (CDs, stickers) have been delayed, which causes a small delay in shipment time. The plan is to ship all books on the 8:th of December (a delay of 3 days). Seeing how stressed the shipping companies are these days, I might have made a bit too happy calculation of the shipment time estimation. I want to be transparent and communicate my best guess of delivery in time for Christmas here:

Sweden & Germany with 99% probability. The rest of Europe is also likely (the Nordic countries, France, UK, Poland, Austria, Netherlands, etc)

50-50 chance (these countries have sometimes experienced long delivery times so I can not promise anything here): Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Iceland, the Balkan states.

USA, Australia (sometimes shipping to the US and Australia goes swiftly, but don't count on it). Rest of the world: Singapore, Hong Kong, Israel, Turkie, Russia, Japan, Brazil, etc... will have to wait until after New Year I am afraid.

Most of the backers are in the high and medium groups, but I know it sucks if you are in the last group and were planning the book as a Christmas present...

On the bright side the chip-tune CD ended up very well. Here is a list of the artists featured on the CD (which might be familiar names for some of you): !cube, Agemixer, Asterion, Brandon Walsh, DaFunk, Drax, Dustbin, Fanta, Flex, Franz Koopa, Jeff, Jeroen Tel, Jochen Hippel, Laxity, LMan, OMP, Ruuvari, Shinobi, Tao, Timbral, Ultrasyd, Wiklund, XyCe, Zardax

Last but not least - some sample photos of the book:

      @Andy Linea: First prio right now is to deliver the book packages. The PDF version requires a bit of work before ready to be released, but I will start on that when the last book has been shipped!
