Thanks for the heads up and it looks great but how much is the shipping going to be on this I wonder. I know everything was very straight forward for Richard to order a group lot of these books for the first one so I'm sure he'll be offering the same thing this time around :lol:

This has now launched on kickstarter. There are some eye-watering prices but I'm a sucker for books like this.

And global shipping is included in the price, so you can relax Richard :lol:

It's what I expected price wise due to the shipping although are you sure that the shipping is included in the price? When I've backed books before from KS it states that they ship worldwide but you have to pay shipping on top of the listed price once you back it.

You're right about the shipping - I've no idea what made me think it was included.

So was there also a kickstarter campaign for the first book, but the target had already been reached by the time the details about the book were posted on this forum? Because as far as I can recall, the first book was already due to be published by the time we were invited to buy a copy, and I don't remember a kickstarter campaign and the opportunity to part with up to $3,000...

Minimum pledge for a standard copy of the book + worldwide shipping is $125 (£100)

Kinda disappointed with that tbh :(

It does seem like a high price even though it's a hardback book and the shipping for something like this to the UK is normally around £50 so I think it's priced itself out for me this time around. Oh well, at least I have the first paperback book to still enjoy.

Agreed. I'd love to have a copy of the second book as I enjoyed the first, but at that price I'll be going without.

I've just seen a post on the facebook page which confirms international shipping is included.
