We’ve had a couple people place inadvertent double orders: one when a book is first available (right when we send it to the printer), then again six weeks or so later when we post that the book is now in stock. (I get it…given my bourbon intake since March, it’s a miracle that I haven’t placed a double order!)
So, if you think it’s possible you’ve placed an order but cannot remember (or if you simply wish to check the status of an order), here’s how, in pictures (and captions).
And if you’re wondering why Chris ordered “The Anarchist’s Workbench” – a book he wrote and that is not only free to download but for which the design files are available to him on the very computer at which I type this – it’s because Lost Art Press likes to replicate your order experience from time to time, just to make sure everything is working as it should – from placing the order to the packing and shipping to delivery.
The entire press run of “The Anarchist’s Workbench” passed its quality inspection and has arrived in our Indiana warehouse. Employees there are printing out the labels and will ship out orders in the coming days.
If you would like a printed copy of the first edition, you can buy one for $27 via this link. Or you can download the entire book for free at the same link. The electronic version is free and always will be. It’s covered by a Creative Commons license that allows you to reuse and adapt the material for non-commercial purposes.
For example, Ray Deftereos at the Hand Tool Book Review podcast has been recording the book as a free audiobook. He’s up through chapter 8 now. This is a perfect example of using the Creative Commons license, and we are thrilled by stuff like this.
“The Anarchist’s Workbench” concludes the “anarchist” series of books I began writing about 10 years ago. If you want to know why there will be no more “anarchist” titles, you can find out in the book. The answer is in chapter 16: “The ‘A’ is Now at the End.”
Because of the current problems at USPS, it likely will take longer to receive your book than usual. We have experienced delays of four or more days. So we ask that you please be a little more patient than usual. If you have problems with a lost or damaged book (it happens no matter what we do), please contact email@example.com. It’s best not to leave a customer service problem as a comment on the blog because we might not see it in a timely manner.
