It’s on its way, it’s on the sleigh!

The first tranch of  ‘Never Again – The Complete Works’  has now arrived at our distribution depot and we have commenced dispatch to customers.

This picture shows boxed sets at our hi-tech distribution facility, ready for dispatch.

Please note that as we are nearly sold out, any further orders are strictly subject to stock availability.

 

‘Never Again’ printing commences

After a tremendous amount of discussion with our printer during the past two months we have now achieved a technical solution that presents all images to a very high standard and we are very satisfied with the results.

Achieving the highest possible quality has always been our objective and we hope that all those that have purchased ‘Never Again’ will acknowledge the importance of getting the final product to the required standard, albeit with a slight delay to the publishing schedule.

The final version of ‘Never Again’ has been submitted to the printer in electronic form, and we have been advised that the books will be delivered to our UK distribution centre in Wolverhampton in early December.

We will commence distribution from 10th December, but please bear in mind we have several hundred copies already ordered. Rest assured we will do our utmost to get them all dispatched as quickly as possible.

We will be using Parcelforce as our delivery agent, please note that all deliveries need to be signed for on receipt.

Publication Date – The Quest for Perfection

The design and compilation of “Never Again” was completed on schedule in August, after nearly ten years’ work, during which time we have sought to ensure that quality is paramount – reflecting our ethos back in the day when we were taking the photographs in the first place, some 50+ years ago.

So at every stage we have been careful to ensure that everything is done to a high standard; and those of you that have seen extracts or early proofs (e.g. on our website, or in the railway press, or on our stall at Kidderminster) will no doubt agree.

However, during the proofing checks, a number of issues arose which we have referred back to the printer (perhaps this is no surprise in four volumes and over one thousand pages!)

These are now sorted, but the time taken to review and deal with these issues was a little longer than anticipated.

As a result, the planned publication date is now expected to be towards the end of October. We apologise for this unavoidable slippage in our schedule, and we do hope that you will understand, as our over-riding intention is to maintain top quality throughout.

Payment by cheque

Following the success of our sales stand at Kidderminster Station (Severn Valley Railway) last weekend (pictured here), we have decided to extend our arrangements for advance ordering by post.

Arrangements for ordering via this website remain unchanged.

Alternatively, to order NEVER AGAIN – The Complete Works for delivery to a mainland UK address, please send a cheque for £130 per copy, made payable to ‘Never Again Publishing’, with your contact details, to:

Mr K Hale, 150 Farrington Road, Wolverhampton WV4 6QL

Our standard terms and conditions apply. For deliveries outwith mainland UK, please e-mail us at sales@mnabooks.com for a quote.
