Accordion Books Delivery


Dear readers,

We’re sorry to inform you that, due to unforeseen delays caused by the technical difficulty of producing these books, we’ll no longer be able to dispatch Fox and Otter in November 2022. This is because we’ve had to find a new printer in Europe who will be able to produce the books to the high standard that Jackie’s work deserves, which has set our process back by six weeks. However, we are now moving towards finished copies at a good pace and aim to dispatch your books early in the new year – months before their official trade publication date on 13 April 2023.

We apologise for any disappointment this delay may cause, and hope you’ll understand it is all in the service of creating two beautiful objects that do justice to the quality of Jackie’s words and paintings.

If you have any questions, please send them to

With best wishes,

Team Unbound

completely understand - I would much rather be happy receiving these looking as Jackie & Unbound wanted them to look but a little later than anticipated - than be disappointed at an end product that did live up to Jackies beautiful work.

Thanks everyone for being so understanding. It's a great shame to miss Christmas, but my hope is that they stay in print for a long time. And now we have the understanding of how to make them, hopefully the next ones will be more straight forward.
I am looking forward to these being out in the world not least to discover if people like them.
