Book delivery

Dear all,

We are very pleased to announce that the first books have started to be dispatched. They are sending the non-signed copies first as there has been a delay with the signed copies needing to be shrinkwrapped again. This is so that they don't get damaged in the post. These will start to be sent out as soon as this is finished (late next week/early the week after). 

If your delivery address is not in the UK, please provide us with a contact telephone number as they need to pass this on to the distributors to make sure they can get the books to you. If we don't have a telelphone number, your delivery may be delayed further and we really don't want that to happen.

Sorry again for all these delays, but we've been doing everything we can to speed up this final process and we hope you think the book is a beautiful as we do when it finally arrives. 

Best wishes,

The Unbounders

Received my standard unsigned subscribers edition yesterday. Lovely big book, which I look forward to browsing. (Cheers for making that PDF available too.) Just out of interest, what is the number to the top of the spine? I paid pretty late (you'd already reached funding), so I can't imagine this is any sort of edition number. My copy states "021".

Got mine this morning - leaving it shrink wrapped as I'll let my Dad open it at Christmas. My copy has '021' on the spine too can't remember when I pledged but I think I was originally expecting the book to be out in the spring? I was certainly hoping to give it as a birthday present in July!

Unbound: I was hoping to give the two signed copies I ordered as Christmas gifts, but you mention that they might not be sent out until sometime between December 4 -December 11? I am also in the U.S. -- do you know what type of shipping these are being mailed, so I can estimate their arrival? This is disappointing if delivery won't be until after the holidays. Major fail.

Brian and Andrea: Letters of Note was the 21st book to be published by Unbound, hence the number on its spine.

Jessica: I can't answer that personally but will find out for you.

I also haven´t received my copy yet (Austria) but being logged in at this homepage it says under "supported books": no pledges currently". Must I be concerned?

Has anyone in Australia received theirs yet? I am concerned it will get lost over the Christmas holidays.

Did dispatch to UK go ahead as planned last Tuesday? My copy still hasn't arrived. I know it's Christmas -manic-post but still... A little concerned. I checked my address is correct (and it is)...

Hi there, same question as Leighton - I've ordered two copies, received one a couple of weeks ago and no sign of the second one. As it's the 19th December it's looking a bit tight for it to make it for the Christmas stocking…

I had two copies that came yesterday. They are lovely. I'm so pleased! I took one to the post office this morning to send to Colorado. I can't wait to open my copy with my husband (I didn't violate the plastic wrap).

December 24th, my birthday, and still no sign of book. I have pledged to many Unbound books with no problems but this is very disappointing.
