    I know ! That is too much. I think they are struggling with the headphones and I think limited 500 books at £250 is a push !- But dino is my thing so it’s just the one hooker and 2 grams of coke tonight………

    Does look the bee’s knees though ! You can do staggered payments I guess! But I think most people will just buy the standard one and get the band to sign it? They are not hard to meet when they play…..

    Also I like marq spusta…but I mean come on the treeman again ? His work is fairly derivative anyway, and he’s just doing variation on a theme for this? That’s my only slight moan.

    Because the book and pictures and idea is amazing and I can’t wait to get a copy….!!!!!

    Dang, I just ordered the Signiture Edition!!! It’s $1.00 a day. This is my favorite band and I think it’s an excellent idea. Now passing up on the headphones and shoes doesn’t seem so bad.

    I feel bad for you brits, that comes out to $400.00 right? That’s $35.00 more, a year and a month!

    I paid all at once to get my name on the Roll of Honour..

    Jeremiah, did you order already?

    I’m part of the rest of the world …
    £50.00 of shipping for a £40.00 book.
    They were like … screw the rest of the world …. at least we have a good health insurance here in Canada. :-$

    £50 shipping is awful!


    @Obseqio
    – For once the book is made in England so it’s cheaper here then anywhere else which is cool! I’ve spent about $500 in shipping just on dino skateboards in the past……
    The signiture edition is $30 less than buying it to ship to America. The Classic is only $3
    in it, so not too much difference on either.

    I think if you order before September (classic or sig) your names in the book too! (but not if you pay in stages as Obseqio said above!)

    I am going to be getting a review copy of this pretty soon!!! CAN’T WAIT! I’ll be doing a review (obviously) shortly after 😀

    Don’t forget if you pre-order before the end of the month (couple days left) your name goes on the website AND in the printed book!

    Lucky you Jeremiah! Can you propose that everyone who gets on the Honor Roll or orders the Signature copy gets back stage passes to the next show they go to? Thanks!
