To The Presses!

Dear subscribers,

We are pleased to confirm that The Lost Spell has been approved at the printers and our hand-printed covers have been received.

There is one final delay, which is a UK paper shortage due to trade barriers at Calais. We bought the last 140 sheets of the cover paper in the UK! Now the pages themselves are in a three week queue...

So we should have paperback books to send you around 21st March.

Handmade subscribers will receive their books closer to August. Progress can be tracked on our departures board! 

Thank you for your patience!

David and Ping Henningham
