Yeah, I would have preferred to discover how to turn lead into gold, but what can you do? ;)

Thanks for the heads up guys. Yes sizing will be such to accommodate all hardback editions (namely the s/l and I signed with two Dj’s plus broadart. ) Of course that means the overrun copies will fit as it only has one DJ.

Just chiming in. I'm glad to hear the hardcover slipcase will be similar to Joyland. Makes senses in my opinion. Anyway, when they come up for preorder let us know, I'm definitely ordering one for the hardcover. Thank you Tomas!

My pleasure! Just as an update I go the artwork in and wrapped it around existing slipcases. They looked pretty good but showed some minor tweaks that need to happen. I'm expecting this to be the last round of revisions and I hope they will be done by the end of next week. Then one last round of review and then the actual prototype.

Yep, so the artwork has been tweaked to include the latest revisions. The bindery has put together the inner shell of the case and sent it over to the design house. They are doing some resizing of the outer wrap so that once it's wrapped around the boards it all lines up correctly. I'm hoping that will be done by the end of next week and I'll have the prototypes in hand the week after. At that point I can take some photos and get pre-orders up.

That's the plan anyway. Both companies are slammed right now, coordinating free time between them has been a bit challenging.

Printers, book binders, case makers... they're ALL slammed right now, it seems. But if this case is anything like your Joyland case, it'll be worth the wait for sure!

Best,

Prototypes are in hand! Looking close there are a couple alignment type tweaks to be made but nothing that should hold up pre-orders any longer. I need to get some confirmation on production timelines from both the design house and bindery but I'll start working on a pre-order page with a full announcement and photos expected to go live sometime next week, exciting!!

Details, will come out in a dedicated newsletter.
