Dear Backers,

Advance copies have arrived!

This Monday we received the first 10 copies of the books sent express from the printer. Here are some teaser photos. More to come soon.

Shipping update

We are 100% on schedule for our March delivery as promised.

All books are now on palettes at the printers awaiting pickup. A portion of books will be sent over land to distribution facilities the UK, and some via sea to Australia, and the remainder to USA via sea.

Once they clear customs, they will be unpacked from the palettes, labeled, and send out to you a rolling basis. We will send updates when we have them.

We couldn’t be happier with the finished product and can’t wait for everyone to spend time with this important document.

Best, Jesse & Hamish

      *drooling*

      Hoping I finish drooling before the book arrives so as to avoid damage to this fine looking product.

      I thing you'll find they are stacked on pallets, not palettes. Don't want any paint on these gorgeous books!

      Great news! Question - I'm going to need to change my shipping address, what's the best way to do that?

      Looks fantastic!

      No packaging need be harmed! The foil packaging is adhesive sealed and folded over at the top. The ability to resealing seems to be holding up on the copies we have.

    20. JP Holecka on

      Looking great thanks for the details on the shipping process including the "by sea" note. Helps manage expectations and provides insights to way it's being shipped. People are so used to overnight express shipping these days :)

    21. Jan Vana on

      Can't wait to get my hands on what looks like a fantastic book!

    22. Edwin Boering on

      oooh beautiful ! I almost can't wait ;)

    23. Rom on

      Oh how I wish that foil packing has a ziplock seal! I'd hate to tear that apart :)

    24. Rob on

      I'm so freaking excited. That silver packaging is gorgeous guys! Nice work!

    25. Martin Schwebs Rasmussen on

      That looks beautiful! Very promising!
