International Shipping Delays – What's Happening?
9 days ago – Mon, Sep 13, 2021 at 09:38:10 PM

There is a back up of dozens of container ships off the coast of California (see screenshot from BusinessInsider.com below).

Our US-based print broker MJ Jacobs sent us an update about international shipping and their email is posted below.

We hope this supply chain slow down will be resolved by the time the ship leaves China with the Waterloo art books.

The most recent information we have about the Waterloo art book is that it should be printed and out of the bindery by mid-October. We requested photos that we can post to let everyone know what's happening. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

After reviewing the proofs, we had to replace some paintings with versions that were a bit lighter and showed off more details (see attached example).

The latest information from the printer in China is that the books probably won't ship to our USA warehouse until mid-October, although the  printer was hopeful they could be finished sooner.

However, because of the world-wide slow down in shipping, we probably won't receive the books in the USA until sometime in November.

We hope to have an update soon about backers who live outside the USA. We still plan to ship the books from WITHIN the UK, EU, and NZ-AUS. This is requiring more planning and logistics because of the current world-wide disruption in shipping services.

Because we don't have an exact final cost on shipping yet, we asked BackerKit to NOT charge credit cards until we update the shipping costs. This probably won't happen until mid-October.

The books will go on press soon! We hope to show you a scene from inside the printing plant as soon as we can.

Thank you for everyone's patience!

Some paintings had to be replaced after we saw the proofs. First proof sample on the right and adjusted (lighter) painting on the left that will appear in the final, printed book.

Here  is Keith Rocco in his studio reviewing the color proofs of his WATERLOO art book being published by my Lombardy Studios. We hope the printed  books will be delivered to my warehouse in California around the end of August. We will continue to post updates and more sample pages several more times before the books arrive.

"Am I getting the 2 stretch goals with the Waterloo book?"

YES! Every backer who pledged for a copy of the Waterloo art book will receive the Waterloo book mark and the Napoleon Journal searchable PDFs on a DVD.

These will be mailed with the book.

Kickstarter backers don't need to buy these items in the BackerKit preorder store unless you want a second copy of the bookmark or DVD.
