I'd love to get it...but I simply don't have the money.
I probably won't either. I'd wager 100% of the pictures will be online somewhere exactly 60 seconds after the book's release.
I had a no idea. Is this a behind the scenes book or an encyclopedia?
The article I originally posted describes the book. It's a behind the scenes visual guide/companion.
Sorry, i should had checked it out.
This looks great!
I know we already knew this, but just reading it again......
A message from Captain Jaclyn regarding pre-orders of the B520 book to be picked up at Phoenix Comicon:
So did anyone going to Phoenix Con pick up the book? Jan ?
I saw it and it's truly gorgeous. Big and beautiful. I didn't pick mine up because I really didn't want to lug a 5-pound book around the con with me. But I did look through the sample copy they had and loved it. Lots of fans were doing something really smart - getting their autographs on the slipcase. That's gonna look *great* on their coffee tables!
I don't know if they'll be available for purchase or not, but at the B5 Bingo/Stump the Editor panel, there were a few framed prints of some of the pages as prizes. My fave was of John and Delenn embracing for the last time. I didn't win at Bingo and wasn't allowed to play Stump the Editor but that would have been my chosen prize.
There's been a lot of excitement about the Babylon 5 at 20 book that was announced last month. Due to the number of people interested in pre-ordering, that's been opened up earlier than planned: http://www.cafepress.com/_b5books Books will ship by June 30.
Thanks for the heads up Jan, I just ordered mine. I really can't wait to get it.
Thanks for the heads up Jan. I'll be ordering my copy next weekend.
I'm still on the fence--Babylon 5 has always been about the writing to me and I love the show in spite of its visuals... At the same time, it would make a nice companion piece to all the script books.
I'm sure there are valid economic reasons for its price, but this is yet another B5 book I can't bring myself to spend that much money for.
I completely understand that. There have been several books which I could not "pull the trigger" on. This one feels different, somehow.
^ Agreed. I feel like this is a must buy for me, despite the price tag.
I don't disagree, but I just don't have sixty plus quid lying around. Being poor sucks.
Regarding pre-ordering the B520 book: There's been concern from some folks who don't have (or don't want) PayPal accounts. It's not terribly obvious, but you *can* pay by credit card even without an account. See this from Captain Jaclyn:
Well, I bit the bullet and put down my ducats for a copy......
