I got the printer to take pictures (quick cellphone pics, nothing fancy) of all five books that should be here at the end of the week.
You'll notice A Red & Pleasant Land isn't done - the covers have had the cloth material applied and the gold foil embossing, but the attachment of the cover artwork and the actual binding of the books are still to come. But that portion will look like the previews, it's this special material stuff shown here that we've only been able to approximate in earlier previews.
(They still expect to have them to me on Friday... I got a long speech down at the printer's office how these steps are often done just hours before they're loaded on the truck for delivery. We'll see.)
