Just checked mine and I'm still showing an estimated delivery of 15th - 16th Jan. Oh the vagaries of Amazon delivery dates!

Weirdly so is mine. Even though the header say's dispatched and I got the email. I've even been charged £15. Ah well. Time will tell.

Has anybody got this yet? The one copy left in FP has internal pages slightly wider than the cover and I wanted to check if that's standard or a dodgy copy as it's bending the corners and I'm a dick about things like that.
Well?

Actually now you mention it and looking very closely I'd say yes but its miniscule and probably down to the fold in the fold-out cover (both front and back). Its a lovely heavy book, bigger than the Battle reprints (I note as mine happens to be standing next to one) with really nice heavy paper a deep blacks.

Buy it The Cosh or I will lose all respect for you and mock you to your dieing day.

I actually forgot about what Cosh mentioned until I noticed it myself. It's really not that noticeable and honestly doesn't make any difference to the structure of the book.

But it is a handsome volume by all accounts. I'm slightly stunned by just how nice a presentation it is.

Glad it looks good in the hand, I often wonder when looking at the previews I get.

Yeah, that sounds the same as the one I saw. I'll definitely be getting it but might be a couple of weeks now.

Its also surprising how thick it is as its only 140 pages (ish) long. Down to the heavy, quality (I assume) paper.

The paper stock is great. Theirs no light reflection off the blacks so it looks solid. Really good production.
