Herewith the State of Ctein Address:
All the pre-holiday orders were shipped out by the first week of December. In fact, many of the people who volunteered to get their prints after the holidays also got them in December. By the end of the year I had finished two thirds of the prints. At this point I am confident that all the printing will be done by the end of January (barring the usual unforeseen circumstances).
I suspended shipping during the holiday Post Office madness, but have resumed shipping domestic orders. I'll start shipping the foreign orders in a few days. Orders are getting filled in chronological order. I expect the last prints to go out by the end of the first week of February.
I really appreciate all the compliments I've been getting back on my work, but I don't have the time to respond individually. So this is a collective appreciation for all the thank-you's. When I'm finished printing, I'll write up a column about my experiences and what I've learned from doing this.
I think I see a light at the end of this very long tunnel. I really don't think it's an oncoming train....
