I did it again, I did order the book

As I said, I ordered the book UJ, - but the cheaper one, sorry, the hardcover was a few Euros better in the price ;]
No, I didn't made the complicated way sending the book with a stop in Olympia.
To be honest, sending the book later to europe would be to expensive.
I know that, because I have my both two books from the earlier original publishing.
(and a little drawing inside)
The oversea-sending was as expensive as the books itself, but this wasn't on the bill, so I'd paid it later back.

Sad, no extra pictures by Jennifer, hm, maybe she can publish a portofolio sometime, sketches and artwork studies, maybe together with PDH and TSH.


Oh, and I bought also another one, a german comic book, the quality of this "semi-funny" was very impressing, and I wanted to have it, if it's good, I'll buy the the other 3 books also.

It was thursday 29th of May, 11.24 a.m. in Germany.
The book arrived.

My first impressions...
What a huge book.
And it's good that I bought it as a hardcover edition.
The paper inside is thinner than the old first publishing books had.

Was it worth to buy it again?
Ahm, for a collector - yes,
for non-collectors, - it's your own choice :wink:

The printing is fine, ... with some sad exceptions.
Some pictures are not sharp, it looks like they where reduce and lost their quality.
Maybe Twirlquin/Stephen has a technical explanation for this. For me it seems the dpi restrictions made the problems.
The old edition hadn't this problem, so I wonder how it happend.
Sorry for mention it.
Above 90% is allright and sharp, it is happen more the supporting fun stuff.

Well, what should be the next step?
Ha! - Translations!
Himmel hilf!

Hi, it's me again

It isn't Lulu but it's interesting to watch.
Here is an machine which makes a book directly in the book store.
First there was "Instant Coffee", now there will come "Instant Books".
(in a few minutes! Can't believe.)
