We are sorry to say that delivery will take more time than we anticipated. This shouldn't have happened, and we fully understand if this waiting leads to frustration, our apologies for this.
It is never our intention to be taciturn about progress and final delivery. But it's fair to say the Covid-19 pandemic has dominated the whole situation, which makes it even more stressful and challenging.
Unfortunately, we cannot further influence the acceleration of finishing from a distance. But we are guaranteed that the most experienced employees do everything they can to complete this production with due care and attention to detail.
From now on, expect a biweekly update on further developments regarding completion and transport.
We understand that waiting can be long and frustrating, but trust us, we make every effort to produce this book in the best possible way and ship it within a reasonable time frame.
The launch was planned this spring, which it still is actually, however we also depend on external companies, some of which were badly hit during the unprecedented disruption as a result of COVID-19
Therefore the Scrolls book’s publication date has been pushed back slightly, due to the COVID-19 situation and other issues.
COVID-19 has caused problems for businesses around the world; and Kintaro Publishing is no exception. Rest assured, we’re working hard to reduce disruptions, but the current lockdown situation has caused some delays.
For now we don't know an exact launch day or month, but we will let you know as soon as possible once we have an insight for a date.
For those who have pre-ordered, we will contact you before shipping asking for an address confirmation for delivery.
Thanks for your understanding and solidarity during the impact of this global pandemic.
