While supplies last, you can get an author-signed edition of The 99% Invisible City: A Field Guide to the Hidden World of Everyday Design by Roman Mars and Kurt Kohlstedt — click here to pre-order at Barnes & Noble for the same price as the regular editions (just be sure to click ‘Signed Book’ before adding it to your cart).
Update: Roman and Kurt have been signing more copies in part due to an overwhelming number of requests to have signed editions available at local and independent bookstores, including those listed below!
Ever wonder how authors sign copies of books that haven’t even been printed yet? We didn’t know either, until a few months ago when the printer shipped a few thousand high-quality, extra-thick pages (tucked into a set of boxes) to us in beautiful downtown Oakland, California.
Roman started unboxing stacks of sheets and signing them in marathon sessions, then passed them off a few boxes at a time to Kurt. Weeks later, we carefully packed and shipped over 80 pounds of signed sheets back to the printer to be cropped and bound into the books.
These make a perfect gift for friends, family, or … yourself! Now is your chance to own one (or more!) of these limited-edition signed versions for sale at Barnes & Noble — click here to order.
P.S. Whatever edition you choose, pre-orders mean so much to us — these are the sales numbers that inspire bookstores large and small to stock up on copies in advance and ultimately help us reach new audiences!
