Any word from the publisher on why? Will the books be corrected/replaced?

You guys need to get on to them asap and let them know. My feeling is they’ve completed the whole production, if it was a batch there’s a possibility they could change the embossing die. The fault would be with the finishing house that did the hardback but if it was signed off as ok someone might have to foot the bill twice! Hope all turns out right in the end.

sbnitro: Some Radom thoughts on the book. It’s heavy and I hope the binding holds up. Mine is autographed looks real, don’t remember if that was a option. Seems more like a VH book with the emphasis on EVH. It covers 78-04 the later years are just photo shoots. Quickly going through it I really liked the beginning and the end. To me I’m glad I have my copy.Expensive but worth it, I’m sure this won’t be around long.

i assume no… but is there any appendix that shows the date or city for photos?

Anyone outside the US receive their book?
I’ve emailed them a few times on when mine might be shipped with no reply recently.
Did everyone that received the book get a tracking email?

Thanks

I wonder if they’re shipping the earliest orders first. sbnitro, do you remember your order date?

No I don’t and I deleted all of my emails once I received my book. I ordered my book first chance after it was announced though.

I’ve been following a few discussions on Facebook about the book..
One guy has written a email to Ross’s website about the logo backwards and the binding with this reply..

Michael… I contacted the sales department at Ross Halfin Photography just to let them know. They were aware of the issue. None of These were supposed to go out. They are arranging a new copy of the correct version. They also confirmed that Mr. Halfin’s signature is real.

Daniel not a bootleg. The company screwed up. They weren’t supposed to be sold. They are sending me a correct copy.

So the backwards logo versions are a rare variant, and worth $$$ ?

I was considering contacting them to say I wouldn’t mind one with the backwards logo. It would probably get here sooner too. :)

You gotta wonder how many were made like that and if Rufus is going to take the hit.
