Chinese New Year Update And New Inc Wallpaper

Hello everyone!

So Chinese New Year is upon us, and I wish all of the wonderful people who helped print "The Story Of Inc" book a fantastic holiday. If you haven't heard of Chinese New Year, it is a huge holiday that basically shuts down the entire country for 3-4 weeks. A little reading on it here: http://www.ewmfg.com/chinese-new-year/

Anyways, the downside of the holiday is if your book isn't on the boat before the holiday starts, it will sit until the holiday ends. So you can probably see where this post is going. The books haven't left the port yet, and so they won't until the holiday ends in about 3 weeks. It's my fault for not scheduling the book printing earlier, and asking for a final tweak to the premium edition, so I apologize to everyone, I have sure learned a lot and will take all of that new knowledge with me into future projects.

In the meantime, I am uploading a new Inc wallpaper for your computer as a thank you for being patient!

The zip file contains 4 wallpapers: 2560x1600, 1920x1080, 1920x1200, 1600x1200

I will inform you once the book is on the boat and has left the port, and will inform you again once they arrive at the stateside amazon warehouse and start shipping to you! Thank you all!

Inc Advance Copy Has Arrived!

Happy new year everyone!

The printer has sent me an advance copy of the Standard Edition of "The Story Of Inc" book, and I'm really happy with the results. See a couple of pictures below. The blacks are black, the colors are vibrant, the binding looks solid, overall I think the printing company did great, and I'm sure you'll agree once your copy arrives.

All the rest of the Standard Edition books (including all the copies for the kickstarter folk) are currently waiting to be put on the boat for their cross Pacific trip to the Amazon warehouse (I had heard they were already on the boat, but now I have the official word that they are just ready for shipment).

What about the Premium Edition you say? Almost there, the cover needs a little more time to cook, but once it's ready they'll be heading across the pond as well.

I'll give you more updates when I have them, thank you so much for believing in this project and being patient. I so wish shipping several tons of books across the globe was a faster affair, but sadly, it still takes longer than we'd all like. They're coming!
