    Man I'm still waiting on my copy to show in the mail. I have been waiting on that book to be printed for god knows how long. So every time I check the mail, I feel like a 7 yr old waiting for his secret decoder ring to arrive in the mail.

    Darted to my PO BOX after I saw this thread. No dice.

  • Darted to my PO BOX after I saw this thread. No dice.

    Here some information about shipping time.

    Generally economy-airmail, as I've sent them, takes to USA (11-15 WORKING days) to CANADA (11-20 WORKING days).

    I've sent out the first batch of orders on Oct 28th. All who have paid until Oct 27th are sent off that day. So arrival in USA should be between Nov 14th to 18th/21st, to Canada Nov 14th to Nov 25th, very much depending on where (East/West) in the states you are and how fast the custom authorities work (some sent out Oct 28th to east coast seem to have arrived Friday). After October 28th I've sent out every Tuesday and Friday. So all can calculate about the approximately arrival time knowning that, depending on their payment arrival.

    Also important to know for all who may think of it might be lost - All parcels are sent registered/insured.

    Best,
    Peter

    Yeah, I was hoping that it would be inside the storm door when I got home....just a bunch of junk mail instead......

  • Man.
    The lexicon has already become a household joke for benchmarking trades between two ultra bored and broke ass roomies (insert valley girl voice...) "Ummm, NoOooo, according to the funky records lexicon this is a BeeEeeee. You will have to trade some anotherrrr A to get this Paul Humphry and the Cool Aid Chemists...."

    But its always cool to see a bunch of covers that you have titles of / know about but don't really know what you are looking for. That being said, I think that some of the shit is off mark in terms of rarity.


  • My copy came in today and weighs roughly the same as Vernon Joynson's "The Tapestry of Delights" but more than David Walters "The Children of Nuggets" (which is hard bound, even!). Well done, Peter! That reminds me....I have some updates to send in!

    It just never ends....

  • Double K and I killed two hours of studio time today playing real or fake 45 title/group name. Shit was hilarious. I love my copy, and next to Insomnia it's the best book I own now. Thanks P...

    Hi there..can you please give us some info on the shipping time for Euro strutters?
    thanks.

  • Generally economy-airmail, within Europe, takes 5-20 WORKING days (Russia for example = 15-25 days), depending on the country and how far from Switzerland it is. Mostly it's somewhere between 8-12 WORKING days (with some exceptions when custom authorities work veryyyyyy slooooowwwww).

    I was a bit worried that would happen to me too with the surface shipping option.
