It’s very exciting times here at Ballistic! 2.5 tonnes of our books are en-route to Los Angeles for SIGGRAPH next week, 1.5 tonnes of books are being flown in from Hong Kong to start sending to pre-order customers, and the rest are on a boat coming in as I type this. The three new books have landed here:
The books have exceeded our expectations in all aspects of quality. The print was done with AGFA’s new stochastic/halftone screening process, which has blown us all away - all our books now look much better than EXPOSE’ 1. The pages are all thicker, using heavier stock, and the binding is also solid. Basically, we got it down pat - and you will be staggered by the results.
The surprise for us is the extremely positive feedback we’ve been getting for ELEMENTAL following Discreet’s press release. This goes on sale online tomorrow.
So hop onto Ballistic Publishing’s website, get yourself a book, support CGTalk, and we hope to see you at SIGGRAPH next week!
SHIPPING TO COMMENCE
Next week, pre-orders for EXPOSE’ 2 and D’artiste start shipping. We have specially arranged for expedited air freight (at our cost) for current pre-orders. The cargo delivery, unfortunately, is outside our control and is taking a lot longer than expected, so we’ve made a special air freight at our additional cost to start shipping the books to customers.
