So is the artwork done, is it a photo guide?

I cannot find the info on FB any more, but the book is complete and in printing, apparently, to be available quite soon. Not a photo guide, all plates. As I am in S Peru and headed to Bolivia in 1-2 months, cannot come soon enough for me! Very excited this is finally happening. I won't hold my breath on the Argentina guide, though!

I asked Sebastian and he said it is still at the printers (this references the English edition just to be precise).

Saludos!

So it's imminent?
I'm not au fait with the publishing businss but I assume that once 'at the printers', the bulk of the work is done.....Jim, over to you.

I presume but can't say with any authority. I don't know Sebastian personally, just asked him in a thread about it on Facebook that I finally dug up again. I'm fairly frothing for it!

Exciting indeed! Curious to get a glimpse of the inside. Would seem we'll not have to wait much longer, though.

Strange that there's no projected launch date if it's already gone to print and it doesn't seem well publicised given that it will be a popular book?

I'll certainly get one but it's not on any of my usual supplier sites as forthcoming?

Such books have a history of being published by "unknowns" first. I recall offhand Birds of Colombia (Pro Aves) and some books on Brazilian birds. Part of the reason may be to keep more of the income for local conservation projects.

Tomorrow was yesterday!

Has anybody seen the announcement that was supposedly coming on November 1st? On the 31st of October they said to watch for the announcement "tomorrow".

No. Seems that they have post-poned this announcement to an unknown date.

It must be very close if it's with the printer?

Here is Herzog's reply concerning the distribution on a larger platform

Quote:
The same issues with exporting apply. Lot's of bureaucracy, everybody wants a piece of the pie. It would take months to complete the paperwork, and I don't know how much in fees. But we are looking into other options, and we will eventually print a second edition abroad, and that will definitely be available at NHBS.

And still no sample pages.
No idea about the actual quality of the illustrations. Though I think one could not be too picky anyway, at this point. No idea whether there are multiple illustrations for males/females/ flight pictures? And range maps?

You can contact Sebastian Herzog at the Birds of Bolivia page at Facebook. But it could be that currently only orders from Bolivia are fulfilled. But I think it might be good to ask Mr. Herzog how and when you can order this book.

I mailed them as instructed Melanie.

'We received the first delivery of copies from the printers only a few days ago. Thus, for the time being, availability is restricted to Bolivia. However, we send individual copies to North America, Europe, South and Central America by registered mail (shipping costs added). You can pay by PayPal.'

I have done like you, also waiting for a reply. Maybe they are swamped with requests?
