So, I was perusing the internets as I often do and I discovered something rather interesting. I looked at my book on Amazon (because, well, it never ceases to amaze and amuse me that I can) and check it out! If you pre-ordered it expecting it on the official pub date of September 1st, you’re in for a treat. Looks like they’ve arrived on the slow boat from China (seriously) and are actually being shipped! The official pub date is still September 1st, so the tour and publicity will start then, but I guess since they’ve arrived and I ain’t J.K. Rowling, there’s no sense in taking up all that room in the warehouse.
So, if you pre-ordered one, leave me a comment when you get it. I’m curious to see when they actually became available. Have people already gotten it, or did they just change it this weekend? If you’ve gotten in, dare I ask – whaddaya think?
I got the original tote bag and tie that Marnie designed for the book, so I’ll be posting pictures of that as soon as I can find the camera. It’s the classic example of good designer gone bad and I almost feel guilty for asking her to make it. But even her version of tacky is kinda cute.
I’m hoping to be able to link to the official page on Quirk’s website soon, too. But until then, take a look at this book called The Art of Justice. I always hoped something like this would come along, I love courtroom drawings. I think it’s a totally underappreciated art form. They always capture so much in a single frame. It came out in April and I meant to mention it earlier, but I totally forgot. When I went to Quirk’s office in Philly, they had all their books‚ on shelves all over the place‚ and it was very distracting. They have so much good stuff, but this one totally knocked my store-bought socks off. So. Cool. Oh, and also, the Brick Testament is truly a thing to behold. Brilliant. I’m in very good company. They also have an amazing pop-up book of Graceland coming out. Hopefully their page will be ready soon. And rumor has it that the lovely and talented Eunny is working on a stitch dictionary with them. Yay!I amd so looking forward to it. I loves me a stitch dictionary, especially a Quirky one.
