Touching base to give you a couple exciting updates on the "America At The Seams" project and your outstanding rewards.
First, I'd like you all to be the first to see the FINAL front and back cover layout of the hard cover coffee table book below. The front cover has vivid photography of the complete US map mounted on stained reclaimed wood boards:
Final Book Front Cover
The back cover contains snippets of testimonials that we've received from notable persons that have praised the book and the inspirational stories within. It's been so humbling (and fun!) to receive quotes from such amazing people and I'm very grateful for their support.
Final Book Back Cover
The final book electronic files are in the hands of the printer and the printing process is officially underway! We expect to receive our first and only "printed proof" of the actual unbound book by 10/3 for one last review and I am driving 4 hours to take a tour of the print facility in Minnesota the week of 10/9 before giving them the green light to print all 5,000 1st Edition copies. I'll likely be posting video of my printer tour on our Facebook page, so be watching for that. We are expecting to receive the books in hand the week of 10/30. For those receiving books as Backer Rewards, please know my team will be working long hours to make sure you get your autographed copies ASAP!
For those waiting on Fine Art Prints - we have textured fine art paper on order and have identified a local artist to run the full print job for all Kickstarter Backers. We are still deciding on final print size, but likely 16x20 or 18x20. I do still anticipate the Fine Art Print Rewards to ship prior to the Book Rewards.
Thank you so much for your support - we are rounding third and heading for home! Continue to follow along at www.americaattheseams.com.
