Heading into Press Edits for Volume II!

Three years of work are wrapping up this summer- a new edition of Volume I and the brand new Volume II are headed to the press on July 1. I am excited as can be.

This week is very busy, but I’ll be posting updates more frequently now, as we check pages, update our database, and prepare to ship. ONLY PRE-ORDERS will ship out of my studio. After that, I’m not shipping anymore; that job will be done by Helby (wholesale) my assistant Lysa in Seattle, or by Amazon.com. If you want a signed copy, sent by me, with a free digital version, this is your last chance!

Two volume set, $60 pre-order price only (this option will increase to $75 shortly)

Single volumes, $40 each

    I have a question: I’m about to move. How do I go about making sure you have my new address?

      anyone who wants to get in touch should do so by emailing at kate@katemckinnon.com.
      Lois, email me your new address. And thank you!

      A general note- ALL pre-orders will be signed! But only pre-orders. The books will come shrink-wrapped, in future. I’ll sign bookplates when asked, but I won’t be able to sign books.

    I would love it if I could get you to sign my copy of Vol II I pre ordered ages ago though 😦 I agree the model (and Necklace) are GORGEOUS!

      Of course I will sign it! You pre-ordered from ME so you get everything I’ve got to give. 🙂
      It has taken a long time, this one, but I think you will understand why when you see it. Sure, I could have tossed off a pattern book and finished it 6 months ago. But this is so much different. It’s glorious!

    If you mean in the book, you must mean Gabriella van Diepen. Yes, she is a very beautiful woman, confident.
