Imaginer updates!

Forgive us for being a bit quiet here over the last few weeks...  we and Clive have been busily working to make Imaginer Volume 4 as full of exciting images as we possibly can! In fact, we've jam-packed so many paintings into this book that we've decided to drop the section of exhibition photos this time to make way for more close-ups of the artwork.

With proofs returned from the printer for inspection and hard work from all of the team, we've now approved it for printing and can update on delivery times - we expect the books will be with us in March and as soon as we get a detailed schedule from the printer we'll share that with everyone.

As well as finalising Volume 4, we've spent the Christmas break (well, some of it at least!) drafting the selection for both of the next two volumes and Clive is looking at those as we speak.  

Thank you to all of you who have already secured your copy of this limited edition, without exception you have been lovely to talk to and we look forward to getting your copies safely to you. If you've not yet ordered a copy of Imaginer 4, do please remember that the lower pre-order price is only available until 31 January - so grab that whilst you can!

Copies of earlier Imaginer volumes are also available now in the store.

Imaginer 3 - Now Shipping

Shipments of Imaginer Volume 3 have arrived in our twin hubs of London and Los Angeles and we're delighted to report that the very first of the pre-order copies went out in the mail earlier today to new homes all around the world!

Over the next few days we'll be working through the remaining pre-orders and getting copies out to their owners as swiftly as possible.

We'd love to see you share your photos and comments as you receive your books?  

Clive says he 'adores' this new volume and we're incredibly pleased with both the quality and the content.

Huge thanks again to Chet Zar for his afterword in this one.

If you've not treated yourself to a copy yet, please do!  Every new sale makes the completion of the series possible and funds the archiving of Clive's work for new  and existing fans, readers and friends.

Early news: we're deep into preparation on Volume 4, with canvas selection and image capture already underway - more updates on that one as we go...

Oh, and sales of Volumes 1 and 2 will start here in late August for those wishing to catch up with earlier volumes.


Imaginer 3 - Advance Copies

We’re very excited to share that we have the advance copies of Imaginer 3 in our hands – and we’re incredibly pleased with how it has turned out!

The limited print run – 1,000 copies of the regular edition and 100 copies of the deluxe clamshell edition – have been all been printed and started their journey… We'll continue to update here as we get a clearer view of delivery timings.

We know that a number of people have been in touch hoping to ‘catch-up’ on earlier volumes – as soon as stock arrives here we’ll let everyone know and all remaining copies will be made available in the store.

Imaginer 3 - Update

With most copies of Imaginer 2 now safely arrived in their new homes (and thanks for all the great feedback you've sent us on it!) and ahead of the 1 June 2016 date for the reduced pre-order price of Imaginer 3 rising to retail price, we thought it was time for a quick progress update on Book 3.

Clive is delighted with this new volume of Imaginer (phew!) and has been leafing the pages of the colour proofs.  On the final pass, he offered just a few last-minute gracenotes and the inclusion of a couple of additional images.  We decided it was more important to make those final touches than to stay rigid to our print deadline. 

As a consequence, that's pushed back the release of the book to July 2016 instead of June - but we're already working hard on Imaginer Volume 4 and that one's right on track for early next year.

We'll get these books into your hands just as soon as we can - and copies of Books 1 and 2 will be available in the store soon for those back-filling on the collection...

With huge thanks for your support!

P&S and Clive

Imaginer 3 Goes to Print Today

It's great to report that we are bang on schedule with Volume 3 and we've sent it to print today!

We must say thank you to everyone who has shown immense faith in the Imaginer project by placing pre-orders before Volume 2 has reached their hands. It's an act of trust that we don't underestimate and it's very much appreciated. Thanks, too for all the kind words about the Archive site - we'll have much more to share here in coming weeks and months!

Over the next month we'll be poring over the Imaginer 3 proofs and will keep you updated on progress. 

More news soon...
