Book of the month:
Update on the Nick Blinko editions
We are delighted to announce that the numbered edition will finally arrive here very soon! The printers assure me that the books will be delivered to Zagava’s headquarters around the 27th of October.
The books will be checked, packed and sent in sequence of orders received to their new homes worldwide. A shipping confirmation will of course be forwarded – those who opted for registered mail will naturally receive their tracking number.
We sincerely apologise for the delay, which was only partly beyond our control. Apart from the ubiquitous hick-ups experienced everywhere in these strange times, we wanted to make absolutely sure to settle for nothing less than the best technical solution for the complicated fold-out pages for the landscape-format drawings. We could have chosen an easier way, but preferred to give these drawings the space they deserve.
As soon as the first numbered exemplars have been shipped, the paperback edition will become available from Amazon worldwide. We are glad to be able to offer a very affordable edition as well. These significantly less elaborate books will cost slightly less than 20 British pounds only – the format is close to A4, the number of images featured is the same, of course.
The first prototype of the huge artist edition has arrived and looks truly fantastic! To the best of our knowledge nobody has issued a 32 x 48 cm big book affixed(!) to a portfolio yet. The bookbinder really was pushed to his limits.The demand was very high and the edition sold out very quickly too.
As soon as these tomes have arrived here in November, we will forward them to Nick’s home, where he will apply a hand-drawing to the title page of each copy. This is quite an undertaking and we will not put any pressure on Nick, here, of course. So a definite delivery date for these is still a bit up in the stars.
These very large collectors items require special shipping and custom-made transport card board boxes will be built. All artist editions are shipped by courier (signed for) to ensure a speedy and safe arrival.
Many thanks for your kind patience and understanding!
