Well, the day is almost here!

Assuming that no tsunamis/snowstorms/acts of God knock us off track, we should have the final PDF of the Unsplash Book off to our amazing printers at Marquis within the next week.

First off, I want to extend a massive, massive thank you to the 20 copyeditors who volunteered their time to go through and mark up each chapter of the book.

In no particular order:

  • Aphrodite Smiles
  • Ed Williams
  • Liam Moore
  • Rachel Peterson
  • Shayla Coleman
  • Aleesha Nash
  • Kayla Minguez
  • Wendy Garfinkle
  • Daniel Tay
  • YJ Tso
  • R. Kris McNeely
  • Dawn M. Armfield
  • Jane O’Connell
  • Maeve Goggin
  • Carol Gunby
  • BJ Crank
  • Jasha Aitchison
  • Rosie Taylor
  • Jessica McKelden Cave
  • Jason Ortega

I’d also like to extend my gratitude to the countless others who got in touch to volunteer their time. The response was more than we ever could have hoped for and it means so much to us to see the community come together to take this book over the finish line.

Thank you

Now, with that being said, we’ve got a quick update on when you should expect to see these beautiful books on your doorstep.

After speaking with Marquis and finalizing the paper choice, cover, and printing method, we’ve set a printing date that will give us books in hand by the end of March.

This is slightly later than we’d initially expected, but as we should have assumed, the last 10% of finalizing the book’s details has taken longer than anticipated.

We want to make sure that we’re producing the best book possible so thank you for your patience as we go through this learning process!

Those of you in North America should expect your books and perk packages to arrive by early to mid-Aril, with those of you overseas receiving it slightly later than that.

We’ll of course update you along the way as we go through the printing process and can confirm shipping dates with our fulfillment partners.

Thank you all for your support!

Any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to get in touch with me.
