We want to print this as a high-quality coffee table book but have found it is virtually impossible to predict ahead of time what the costs per book would be. The reason is that this depends heavily on how many books are printed and where they need to be shipped to. The more we can print, and the more go to specific countries, the lower the costs will be. To avoid having to set the price too high, or risk making a loss on each book, we’ve therefore split sales into two parts.
The first option is to purchase an e-book only, and the second one to also indicate you would like a hardcopy coffee table book in addition to your e-book. Then, if we get enough people to reserve a hardcopy, and know the shipping destinations, we can set a final and accurate price. We estimate that if we can make the print run at least 500 books, we can make the production and shipping affordable. On our site, we’ve given an indication of what we think the delivered cost of the book would be on this basis for some destinations.
Please do check out the book page on our site for more information and pricing. We’re offering an ‘Early Bird’ discount of 20% on all books bought before the end of March!
We look forward to completing this beautiful together with you and to reading all your stories and comments!
