Last Tenyo Book Update for 2014

Postby Richard Kaufman » December 30th, 2014, 8:44 pm

Today we hit a milestone and reached the final page of the Tenyo book in layout. I had estimated 1,200 pages before we started, and miraculously we ended on page 1,196.

There is still much more work to be done, photos for many of the new handlings to be taken, and color correction, etc. But we're getting there!

Excellent!!!

There are two magic books I am looking forward to more than any other. First is the Tenyo book and second is the Deland book.

The Deland book is going to be outstanding.

The DeLand book, if it is outstanding, will be so because of Bill's help!

Can't wait for the Tenyo book!

What about the Deland book - will that be out in 2015?

Do you have an idea of what the regular edition of the book is going to retail for?

Two 600-page plus volumes.
3 DVDs.
3 Tenyo tricks not sold outside Japan before.

And ... more. :D

A prediction: This will be Richard's best selling book yet.

Unfortunately that won't be possible.

Because of the expense, I'm only printing 1,000 sets.

That will make it one of my lowest-selling books in terms of number of copies.

However, because I'm doing retail-only, I should make get a decent paycheck out of it if all 1,000 sell. Two years worth of very hard work and still not finished. Just got a very rare piece in today from 1964 that will be added. Fortunately there's space on the necessary page for a photograph!

No one does insane projects like this while thinking about the money. It's something you do because you feel you must.

Well then let me amend my prediction. I believe all 1000 copies will sell, and that there will be more demand for this book than any of your others.
