These aren’t shipping until mid-April now. Had an email a couple of weeks ago.
But why did they say that all books are going to be send on April 1st? Status of my orders (Annually and slipcase edition) is „processed“.

No idea - just got to wait until they turn up I suppose!

Received both signed books here in the U.S. from Rough Trade. At least I hope both are signed. Will wait a few days to open.
Signed Rough Trade copies arrived in California yesterday. Package intact.

Anyone else in England also still not received their signed books yet? (from Rough Trade)
Mine arrived on Monday, just under 2 weeks delivery. It could be your local post office just being really busy. Did you use the trackable option for dispatch? If so, keep checking Royal Mail it’ll say they don’t have any details until your local office receives the package, then it’ll say “We haven’t attempted delivery yet” (or words to that effect) - that means they have it and it’ll be in the queue for delivery.

Hope it arrives soon, if it hasn’t already.
They came on Tuesday 31st, although a bit bashed. Looks like the material used for the cover makes the ink rub off easily in transit or the ink wasn't fully allowed to dry before manufacturing them. No bubble-wrap in the packaging.

I suppose it gives them some character and they don't appear to have arrived in as bad a condition as some others.

I got the dispatch email too. Hope they arrive in better condition than I have seen in some of the posts above.

Mine arrived, also. I see they’re already going on eBay for anywhere between £60 and £100.
Under my current financial situation (not great since, like many others, losing my job due to coronavirus) I’m sorely tempted to switch out the slipcase books and slide in my signed copies and get that on eBay. Sounds a bit cavalier, but needs must!
Sad times all round.

I’m after 2 signed copies Effen if that’s any help. Really sorry to hear of your job situation.

    Mine are on their way to Canada - interestingly both with Fedex. So it seems that the OS has had to change their preferred courier in this pandemic, as usually it just come by regular post.

    I actually prefer Fedex - it comes right to my door, and here Canada Post have this nasty habit of cramming boxes into our tiny community mailboxes even if they don't fit - it's a miracle I haven't received a broken piece of vinyl or a damaged Annually yet.
