Thought I'd share this update posted today:

[size=140]The Making of Wizballdrop in for a listen.

I can't link to the video directly, so here is a link to the original update:  Update 16

The final pages were printed last night, and the copies are now being bound. Our fold-out jacket is then applied to each copy by hand, after which every book is individually shrink wrapped to protect the uncoated jacket in transit to your door.

I should be informed of the exact delivery date any day now and I will issue an update as soon as I have it - we are so unbearably close to shipping your books I feel like I may strain something important. I'll be sending out surveys to you all later this afternoon so we have all your addresses at the ready!

In other news, the Sensible vinyl EPs were shipped last week and have now arrived with our backers. You can see some teasing glimpses of it below, printed using the same stock as the book itself and housing a six-track selection of Sensible's finest musical moments:

Here is the latest update:

A very quick update for you today comprising a close-up look at your soon-to-arrive 'slab o' Sensi'. I have just received the unbound pages from the printer and I couldn't resist taking a few shots to share with you, especially given my utter failure to take any decent pictures at the printer itself. I was a bit wobbly with excitement to be fair...

Anyway, I've tried not to give too much away, but hopefully this reveals enough to get you all hot and bothered about what is to come. I hope you enjoy pouring over the shots while the books are being finished off...

Personalised Editions Are Go! Plus, a Special Sensible Evening in London

Jon Hare paid a visit to ROM HQ yesterday to sign and dedicate our Personalised Editions. They've now been lovingly hand-wrapped in their named and numbered jackets, and are taking the postal superhighway to your homes. They should begin to arrive in the UK early next week, Europe towards the end of next week, and International locations shortly after. (PS. You'll find your name in glorious print on page 339).

To everyone who's been receiving their copies this week, I wanted to thank you for all of the lovely and overwhelming feedback. You've made me an emotional wreck (in a good way). I hope you're all enjoying the book, and as always, I'd love to hear any thoughts or comments (https://asensibleevening.eventbrite.co.uk/.

I hope to see you there to celebrate our first book launch!
