Fallout: Equestria 3rd printing - Signups Open!

Imagine wandering through the wasteland. You discover a building that is strangely intact amidst the shell-shocked ruins that once formed a city. Inside you find books - shelves upon shelves of books. Old and new books all alike in one aspect; They beckon you deeper. As you walk, your fingers run along their spines, leaving a path in the dust which stood undisturbed for centuries. You delve deeper and deeper into the depths of the building. Finally, you reach a room empty save for an ominous black leather tome which rests on a podium in the center of the room. Its gilded pages implore you to explore the secrets within.

This is The Book of Littlepip. A single-volume, leather hardcover book with lightweight paper, gilded edges, ribbed spine - the works. A book to stand the test of time. A book to define the pinnacle of what this fandom can achieve.


*** *** ***

In celebration of the 5th anniversary of its completion, it is my great pleasure to announce the third printing of Fallout: Equestria!

This is the complete, unabridged story of Littlepip and her journey out of the Stable into the war-torn wastelands, reformatted and printed as a single deluxe leather-bound book with a foil-stamped title and spine. The book is about 6x9", and will stand proudly on your bookshelf.

The Print Project is supported entirely by Fallout fans (like you!), so the ordering process is a little unique. Put simply, everyone signs up first, then we request quotes for all the books needed, and we divide the total across everyone who signed up. Next we'll email out invoices, and after everyone pays we can start printing books. A month or two later when they're all finished, we pack them up and ship them out to everyone!

Each book will be about $44.99 USD, with free shipping to the US.
Shipping to Canada will be +$25 USD, International will be +$35 USD.

The final cost will likely change by a few dollars depending on how many people actually sign up. As long as you save up a little more than our estimates, you will be more than fine.

(To be clear, you do not need to pay until signups close, we finalize the price, and send out invoices.)


So without further ado, the signup form: https://goo.gl/forms/7wepBA9jrIiZYphM2

Edit: We're still getting some people trickling in, so we'll leave signups open for another day or two.


If you have any questions about the project, you should check out the FAQ. It goes into a bit more detail than this post. Or feel free to send us an email at FoEPrintProject@gmail.com.

I personally can be reached at zemming@zemming.org (but really, most stuff should be sent to the project email).

:pinkiebounce: Absolutely thrilled that the third printing is officially open for orders! What a great christmas present. Thank you, Fallout Book Project team, for all of your work!

Details sound really cool too. Leather-bound, gilded, single-volume tome? Yes, please.

Now I need to decide how many copies I want. . .

Signed up for two myself. As soon as I saw it would be a leatherbound book with all the trimmings. I'll pack one away, and leave one out.

I wonder, will it actually say "The Book of Littlepip" on the cover somewhere? That would be a nice reference.

So, with this, I'll have a copy of the 2nd print of FoE, Pink Eyes First Print, and two premium 3rd printings of FoE. Awesome.

What? My inner fiscal conservative is telling me to save money? *Beats it with a rusty pipe* That's that problem solved!

We're not looking to confuse people if they think The Book of Littlepip is a side story or something. But it is a nice reference.

So, it's still up in the air :twilightblush:

Shared this in every Skype and Discord group I belong to, as well as several groups on FiMfic.
Already found a 1st edition...

Oh man is that tempting, even with the second edition already on my bookshelf...

I do have to ask though, I'm assuming you're not going to be running a Project Horizons print concurrently, but I thought that one was pretty close to printable.

Because if it's $80 for a story I already have when there's another I haven't read for at least as much around the corner, well, I might have to be sensible and wait...
