It sounds like this answers Beat’s question as well as yours. In the U.S. Amazon charges a little less than €70 for MCPW. So apparently they wish to charge €100 extra for the privilege of buying in Europe. So I would say our $40 shipping charge is preferable.

Dear Dan,
I’m quite on the fence regarding the purchase of the book:  I thought Amazon would be a better choice but
checking on the Italian site, MPCW is offered at 170€ (so I assume will be almost the same for Chevreul book).
I don’t know what is the quotation at other Amazon vendors in Europe but

Beat,

It should be handled in the same way as Modern Photoshop Color Workflow. If you can find MPCW on amazon.de then I assume the Chevreul book will get there eventually (but I do think the overseas sites get inventory much later than amazon.com (US).

My pointer would change into a cursor icon over the Signature field, indicating ready for text entry, but clicking would not place a blinking insertion point and I couldn't enter text. But all of the other fields worked fine. (But I was in the third-party Skim PDF app; perhaps if I installed Adobe Reader, it would have worked.)

Well, everybody put it on hold, then, until Sterling wakes up and can address this. He may not have been anticipating that I would post the PDF yet. Sorry for the confusion! More details as soon as we get them.

I have sent a test message and confirm that it was rejected. I have therefore deleted the form from the files section pending a resolution.

Shipping is quoted  for USA, Canada and Western Europe only.

Is shipping to Australia available? 
Alternatively how do I order via Amazon Prime to which I am subscribed?

Hi Sterling,

You said you were sending me the probably final PDF version of the order form, but no file was attached to your post.

How do I proceed, or should I just wait a bit longer.

As can be seen from the posting time Sterling has been up most of the night finalizing this form. When I woke up he had sent it to me for an OK when I woke up. As we all know, the devil never sleeps, but I believe that Sterling does, so I’ve made an executive decision. In view of the extreme shortness of time I will refrain from turning it into a work of art and have now posted it to our files section, direct link

To reiterate some of the points:

*The thread in which so many members announced that they intended to buy, and sometimes buy multiple copies—that was advisory only. To actually get the book through this process you need to fill out the interactive PDF and fax or e-mail it per the instructions. And, because the pressrun starts Monday, we need this right away—not later than Tuesday for the new book, not later than tomorrow if you are trying to get a signed copy of Modern Photoshop Color Workflow.

*No payment is required when submitting the form. You will shortly after submitting it receive an automated invoice, which you can pay by Paypal, Venmo, credit card, digital check, or any major crypto. That final payment has to be received by Wednesday.

*The form also offers a large discount on copies of Modern Photoshop Color Workflow. If you are placing such an order, PLEASE E-MAIL ME SEPARATELY IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS, so that I can figure out how many copies to put into my baggage. Note that Sterling has offered to send additional copies separately from Atlanta if I cannot bring enough to the printing.

*The form has a comments field where you can request an autograph if possible. As I said to George earlier, I am told by the printer that this will work, but I can’t guarantee it. So if you don’t want the books shipped UNLESS they are autographed, put that in the comments field.

Thanks to Sterling for solving a lot of unforeseen technical issues with this process, and thanks to all of you for your great interest in this book, which caused us to be more optimistic about how many copies to print.

Re: Heads up re ordering Chevreul book

Just to prevent confusion, Doug emailed me between when I sent him the private email of the final revisions and when I posted to him that I was sending it. I spoke to Dan a couple of hours ago and I am 98% sure we are on the same page. Tomorrow morning I expect Dan will either approve the PDF form I just sent to Doug or make some additional  changes and then we will post it to http://www.moderncolorworkflow.com/

 

Just fill out the form and send it in via email or fax. You’ll get an invoice pretty soon after you send in the form. Get your order in before 5:00 PM Eastern US Time Tuesday and pay it before 12:00 Eastern US Time Wednesday in order to meet the deadline and be on the list to receive books from the printer before Dan leaves.

 

In general, if you want this book, get it in before Monday please. We all want Dan to do his job and focus on the press check! That’s especially true if you want a signed copy of Modern Color Workflow. I told Dan I’d be happy to send the MCW with no additional shipping expense from the inventory in Atlanta but he won’t be here it sign it so if you want his signature, you really should make sure to put your order in tomorrow.

Hello Dan,

I am a lurker on your web site.� I am not a beta reader.

However, when you first announced your book, I wrote saying I wanted to buy one, one that was autographed if that could possibly be arranged.

If I am among the few to whom you have mailed an autographed copy, please let me know--privately to my email address is just fine.� I'd like to know that before ordering is closed; If I don't hear I'll order one before the deadline date.� If I end up with two copies, that's also fine.

Ciao,

Doug

It would not be worth the aggravation. Outside of beta readers, I can count on my fingers the number of readers who insist on having an autographed copy. For those, I�ve simply mailed out copies from my house, granted that I travel a lot and that inasmuch as I have no shipping department, and a package of greater than .4 kg cannot be dropped into a mailbox, it has to wait until I get to a post office.
