...So, to recap: a major art museum in the American Midwest discovered a rich cache of new copies of old books, lovingly packed in oaken casks in pristine excelsior, way down in the labyrinthine underground catacombs beneath the museum building where hardly anyone ever goes—you know, with all the skulls and cobwebs*. It has (exclusively!) offered the books to TOP to offer (exclusively!) to YOU.
There are a limited number of copies available.
There are, I think, seven titles in all. To start with we'll be offering one title only. But it's a showstopper, a masterpiece—a fabulous and wonderful, deeply engaging, educational and highly tasty book that, I can all but guarantee, no lover of photography will be sorry to own or want to be without. And more to the point it's going to be incredibly unbelievably unprecedentedly cheap. In the talks leading up to this, I suggested a very low price. So the museum had a meeting, discussed the matter, mulled it over at great length, and...decided on an even lower price.
I need to emphasize this: There are a limited number of copies available.
(All the details will be revealed on Monday.)
Really, this amounts to a giveaway.
It almost is. Basically, the book was already a good success, and they don't need to make money or recoup investment from the few remaining copies. Rather, they want the last copies of the book to go to the right people...people who will appreciate and enjoy them.
That's you again; you're getting that?
I'm getting very excited about this. The more time I spend with this book, the more I've been loving it. It took the author six years to write. All I can say is that he must have a lot of energy and be a very hard worker, to get all this done in a mere six years.
There is a decent supply, so it isn't the sort of think you can blink and miss. The thing is, though, we just never know how these things are going to go.
So you want to be alert here. Come back on Monday. (I'll try to give you the exact time in advance. We're still working out the last details.) You might decide not to get this, but, take my word, you want to give yourself the chance to decide.
*Do I exaggerate? Possibly, but I like to believe that all museums have catacombs full of treasure beneath them.
