THE SAN PEDRO GROUP book final cover and preorder
Update: We got so many preorders that half of the remaining books are already gone before the books are here. If you want a copy, it would be best to do a preorder as there probably aren´t enough books available for everyone who wants a copy.
Hi guys, it´s been a while since our last update about the SAN PEDRO book and I want to use this chance to wrap the whole campaign up!
Long story short, we are done with the book and the book is with the printer right now and will be printed within a few days. I will be able to ship the books very soon.
In the past months, we worked our asses off and did nothing but editing all day long and for seven days a week. The book had a professional editor and got a very thorough botanic and taxonomic edit as well. It would usually take much longer to edit a book of that size, but we took absolutely no breaks, worked relentlessly and did everything in about three months.
The result is nothing short of amazing and we are all extremely proud of what we did. The book contains up to date information about every species, has 400 pages (instead of the 300 that we originally wanted) and includes information about DNA tests and cladistic studies. There are two bonus chapters and overall we are sure that this book will be the most complete and beautiful book on the subject. It took more than two years to get it done, and you will all love it. I never did anything this good in my whole life, and I am ecstatic to get it out now!
So yeah, we just wrapped the production on the final cover. The cover alone took almost two weeks. I actually wanted to use the old cover, but we wanted the cover to be very high quality resolution, which is why we decided to make a new one. We had two graphic designers working on it and we finished the rest ourselves.
I will add the final cover here for you and will post further updates about shipping dates as soon as the books arrive at my doorstep. It´ll definitely take a month or two until I have them, but I will start shipping right away as soon as they are here. There will be another update within the next 14 days with the first photos.
We could not make an update any sooner because there was just so much left to do. I know we are a little bit late to the party, but we just wanted to make the best possible book…and we did! I wish I had had a book like this when I was younger! You will love it! See you in a week or two when we have the photos from the printer. Big thanks to Torsten for his hardcore support! Couldn’t have done it without him!
English: There only are a few hundred books left after the books from the campaign are shipped out. Outside the campaign, there will be a few hundred books available that will mostly go to people who will preorder the book. You can get a copy by sending an email to my email EG [@] trichocereus.net now and I will put you on the preorder list. Those people will get their books no matter what. After the campaign ended pretty much all books were sold but I was able to print a few additional hard covers more for people who weren´t able to buy a copy back then and those are the only ones available for preordering. The price of the hardcover is 88 Euro plus 19 Euro shipping costs. The book will have approximately 1.7 Kilo, which is about the maximum we could ship for a normal price. Due to the high printing costs involved, this was the cheapest I could price them and for the quality of the book it´ll be very well worth it. In return, you will get an amazingly crafted 400 pages book with all color pages. The book is huge and in the DIN A4 format.
German/Deutsch: In diesem Beitrag zeige ich endlich die fertige Version des Covers meines Buches TRICHOCEREUS: THE SAN PEDRO GROUP. Das Buch ist in Englischer Sprache und liefert auf knapp 400 Seiten einen Überblick über die Arten aus der näheren Verwandtschaft von Trichocereus pachanoi! Enthalten sind die vollständigen Beschreibungen und mehrere hunderte Standortfotos und Fotos von weltbekannten Züchtern und Kakteenfreunden. Das Buch wurde mit der Crowdfunding Plattform Indiegogo finanziert und war ausschließlich für die Supporter der Kampagne erhältlich. Aufgrund der hohen Nachfrage kann ich jetzt auch außerhalb der Kampagne ein paar Bücher abgeben und nehme deswegen jetzt Vorbestellungen an. Da die Druckkosten für das A4 Hardcover Farbbuch sehr hoch war, beträgt der Vorbestellpreis 88 Euro plus Versandkosten (DE 7 Euro, International 19 Euro). Wie gesagt sind nur ein paar Hundert Bücher verfügbar und eine Neuauflage ist erstmals nicht geplant. Es handelt sich hierbei nicht um ein Buch einer großen Druckerei, sondern ein in liebevoller Kleinarbeit zusammengestelltes Werk das über mehrere Jahre entstanden ist und ein Großteil der Bücher geht vorab an die Unterstützer der Kampagne. Deswegen sichert Euch ein Buch über meine Email Adresse EG [ @] trichocereus.net und ich werde Euch dann auf die Vorbestellliste setzen.
