Well done!

It must be amazing to be able to hold it in your hand as a physical product after all those months of staring at it on a screen.

May it bring you fame and fortune! x-)

Apart from the pre orders, are you still taking orders. i.e. have you printed up more than you have orders for?


Yes, we are still taking orders...
The pre-order scheme was to make sure we got enough to cover the cost of getting it printed.

It IS a limited print run, so the sooner you get your order in the better

(I still haven't held it in my hands yet - those are the designer's hands; he's air-mailed it to me though, so any day now...)

Indeed!

Isn't it great that there's still so much going on in the C64 world, especially with new hardware developments with the 1541 Ultimate. All this in 2008, it's all a bit mad really! x-)

Matt, we should be getting the final books at the end of February, so it will be about a week after that that customers will get their copies...


As for orders, we had over 200 pre-orders before it was printed, which is amazing. In related news, the Spectrum Book has nearly sold out...


And I have the sample copy of the C64 Book. It's fantastic. Pics to follow.

Unfortunately they have yet to arrive... which is a shame.
