I'm following the Kickstarter for Larry Elmore's artbook. The first and second stretch goals are completed. The first reward level is $49 and that gets you a copy of the book plus the stretch goal goodies. There are some midrange rewards left but all the higher end stuff is already sold out. I would love to have a copy of the artbook but it looks like that requires catching the fundraiser; I might scrape up $49 but $80 is pretty much hopeless.
Here's a recent announcement from the Facebook event:
A few people have been asking, how much is this book going to retail for. How much of a savings are we getting, back you with Kickstarter. So after some discussion with the powers that be (mainly Bettie, my wife) we have decide that The Complete Elmore Art Book is going to retail for $80.
So after the Kickstarter campaign is over you will be able to purchase it from my website, a few hardcore game stores, and my website. Cost of shipping from my website is $10 us, and $20 non-us.
So currently, US fans are saving about $40 and the non-US fans are about breaking even.
Here is the retail value of our current stretch goals...
---Dragon print set, $30
---Sketch Book, $20
