Received Sunday 12/13/15 in Indiana. The sheer mass of the books is stunning, and this is the nicest packaging I've ever seen.

The books look fine, but since we are so close to Christmas I plan to put off the reading for two weeks.

Thanks for all the hard work and travel.

Mine showed up yesterday as well. Thanks Richard! Unfortunately, my wife immediately whisked it away, wrapped it up and put it under the tree, so I'll have to wait a bit longer to read it.

I received mine yesterday as well and opened it today and here was my initial experience.

I carefully cut open the outer carton and pull back all four flaps. The first thing I see is a white foam material which not only protects everything but also serves as a handy dandy lifter to easily pull up and out the set. I fold back that material.

On top, I witness a handsome black envelope which is sealed with a small white sticker with the Tenyoism logo printed on it in black. That envelope contains the DVDs and magic tricks.

Then, under that envelope is a white cardboard box housing the Tenyoism set. I open the box and that is where I have temporarily stopped to catch my breath. In a little while, I will remove the shrink wrap protecting the beautiful slipcase and remove the two books in order to absorb its contents.

So there you have it! WOW!!!

No one saw me strap the raw manuscript and the pile of photos to a large steel table before we pulled on the chains and hoisted it up and out of the skylight. Then the lightning struck!

I'm trying to get enough work done on the next issue of Genii so my wife stops giving me the evil eye (because she needs time to do the layout) so I can get in the damn garage and take care of the deluxes! Ack!

I received mine yesterday and I can't remember when I have been this impressed with a magic publication. It is in the same league with my Ultimate Thayer and Ultimate Okito and surpasses them in terms of binding, color, and layout. I have already read for over eight hours and haven't even begun to scratch the surface. As a publisher of many fine books, even Richard must have been amazed at the quality. I only wish that I owned more of these little plastic gems.

West and I received our Tenyoism two days ago. A wonderful accomplishment, I think, I am still checking out the packaging. Congratulations Richard it's an important part of magic history now saved in this superb collection.

According to UPS, my delux edition is arriving next Thursday, so Christmas comes on Christmas eve at my house. I am ready to spend a quiet Christmas day glued to a book.

UPS offers My Choice which allows you to be notified of and track packages sent to your address. With it I was able to see that mine will arrive on Tuesday after Christmas.

The UPS thing is very handy.

My understanding is the USPS will also be rolling out a service that will preview the day's mail:

If it so happens that you can't (or don't want to) wait around for a UPS delivery on a given day, you can also set the "my choice" service to auto-route your UPS packages to a nearby UPS store.
