February 4, 2023 Please note: Ice storms in Texas shut down the distribution of books last Monday. Deep Vellum hopes to resume packing and mailing pre-orders this coming week, weather permitting.
Against the currents of time, strange vicissitudes, and the mischief of minor demiurges, the trade hardcover edition of Little, Big is now in the hands of the distributor, Deep Vellum, and finally beginning to ship--starting with those who ordered their books in 2004, a generation ago!
Last month there was an unexpected delay with trucking the trade edition from the printer to Deep Vellum. Storms, floods and repeated power outages the past couple weeks slowed our California team's work on integrating all the recent address confirmations into our customer database. These latest setbacks are now overcome and Deep Vellum has begun mailing the trade edition. Over the next several weeks their team will package and ship the oldest orders each day, progressing chronologically, until they've distributed all confirmed pre-orders. Tracking will be emailed to each customer at the time of shipment.
There's a delay with the fabrication of the slipcases for the numbered & lettered editions--so we still don't have a clear sense of when these editions will be ready to ship. We will post an update as soon as we know more.
Despite over a thousand address confirmation form submissions in the last 6 weeks, there remain nearly 500 unconfirmed addresses in our order database. If you ordered books between 2004 and December 31, 2021, we need confirmation of your current address to ship:
With a project whose order history spans 18 years, we need to hear from all of you who have pre-ordered, before we can ship your book. We can only ship to those pre-orders whose addresses have been confirmed.
Please confirm or update your complete mailing address and contact info by completing the form at--https://littlebig25.com/Form.shtml
Do NOT fill out or submit this form if you ordered your book through Deep Vellum/Shopify.
If you have recently confirmed your address with Ben Kamm you do not need to fill out the form.
Do NOT fill the form out more than once, multiple submissions will not get you your books any sooner and only add to our workload and possible confusion.
Deep Vellum Publishing now handles sales and fulfillment. Copies of the trade edition and posters remain available through-- https://store.deepvellum.org/products/little-big
Thank you for your legendary patience and support for this long-awaited edition!
