Here is an update I think many of us will like...

This is no longer a project...

...it's a book!
Hello everyone - this is Tim.
This is a big day. A very big day.
My sample copy of the finished book arrived about 15 minutes ago and I'm still in a bit of a daze. This is going to be a short update (I'm struggling to concentrate right now!) just to let you all see the shots I took after unwrapping it - they're not staged or properly lit, they're a few pics of the book in its natural home: on a coffee table :-)
I'm stunned by the quality of the printing, the colour accuracy and the binding too - I'm so happy with it, I'm one turn of the page away from tears!
There are only a few copies finished right now, for approval and press/media review. The production run is in progress and the April shipping date remains the same. One thing I can promise you with absolute certainty now is; it will definitely be worth the wait.
Honestly: it is 324 pages of absolute awesome!
I want to thank every one of you once more for sticking with me - I appreciate it and I never take it for granted.
So, thank you all and I hope you have a great weekend,
Tim
PS. If you'd like to see more of the content (SPOILER ALERT!) the guys from GamesYouLoved.com have uploaded a short unboxing video to YouTube here:

This is wonderful news, and so delighted for tim's vision to finally have made it!, Sam Dyer has done the book justice and is a fantastic alliance between them to have produced such an amazing looking book, and I wish it every success in the future. And thank them both for a great piece of kit, expecting mine in April.

Love the book. Makes you really appreciate that artwork for the marquees.

Must admit i was in the original kickstarter then left it (worried with lack of updates etc) but i ordered this the second Sam got involved. Great looking book, makes me want to play those games much more which are featured.

Me too, yes there is some issues with the spreads across two pages but its not a huge issue to me personally.
