And probably a few more, but you never can tell. Whatever we publish in 2013 you shall receive. Plus, any advance order premiums (bookplates, signed copies) will be included as well.
When I think of this year of publishing I think of the following words: sex; contemplation; beauty; bite; weed, hilarity; terror; intimidation; inspiration; canon; history; cartography; stupefied; bonafide.
1) If you subscribe at any time in 2013 you will receive ALL of the above books.
2) If you change your address, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
3) You might see other items pop up on the web site that PictureBox distributes but does not publish. Those will not be included in the subscription.
4) If you wish to order additional items throughout the year please note that we cannot combine the shipping with subscription items.
5) Things happen in life. Sometimes people are flakey. Sometimes they are especially well-organized. Sometimes the dog hides under the couch. What I’m trying to say is that some of these titles and schedules may change. But I guarantee that your $300 will get you at least 20 satisfying printed experiences at a discount of 45% or more.
This blog is going to take you to school. You will learn about all things PictureBox: old dudes; obscure design; good painting; bad painting; dogs; annoying product endorsements. And so forth. All from me, Dan Nadel, your PictureBox host.
