Elysium has arrived, mostly

As many of you already know, my book has been out in Singapore for quite some time. I would also like everyone to know that my book is now available in the UK! You can order it from 3DTotal (which ships worldwide), Amazon UK, or any other local site. You might also want to check your local bookstore to see if they have any in stock.

I was originally told that the book wouldn’t be out in the US until November, but last night I went on Amazon and it says my book is in stock. I’m not sure if this means it is out in bookstores as well, but it seems like you can order it from Amazon. It also looks like it is available on the Barnes&Noble site. Amazon Canada also has it in stock. If anyone sees one in a physical store here in the US, please let me know! If you could also take a pic of the book, that would be awesome!

A lot of people have been asking which stores carry my book, but unfortunately I don’t get a list of stores that carry my book. 3DTotal is in charge of all the ordering and distribution, so I actually don’t know where my book will be sold. I do know from other people that it has been seen at Basheer and Kinokuniya in Singapore, but other than that, you will have to contact your local store to see if they have any in stock.

I started receiving some feedback from customers on my Twitter, Facebook, and blog and I thought I would share a few of them in case anyone was on the fence about ordering the book.

Dan – I just wanted to say first and foremost congratulations on the book, I got my copy yesterday and it has blown me away so far! It’s a thing of beauty and I love the matte finish on the cover, as well as of course the excellent print quality inside. I own a lot of art books and this is the first one I’ve seen with such a candid and insightful degree of writing to go with the amazing images: lots of books of this nature are very much ‘image based’ and don’t give an indication of how each piece was created.

I’m an aspiring digital artist myself and your willingness to share technique in the book (and on the Enliighten site) is so appreciated, so thanks. I’ve learned so much from you already and look forward to examining the book more closely over the coming weeks! Congrats again on such a great addition to my library, and thank you.

Tristan – Elysium is by far THE best book on my towering wall of tomes.

Stuart – Art book arrived today with the signed prints, absolutely stunning, great job mate, keep it up!

Pollyanna – The art book arrived in this morning’s post, looks amazing. The signed prints that came with it were such a lovely surprise.

Max – I just got your book, my friend bought it from Singapore, the book/artworks are incredible.

Thanks for all of the great comments I have received so far, I really appreciate it! If you ordered the book through 3DTotal or Amazon, please don’t forget to leave a review on their site! Thanks!
