Holy smack! Why does this item cost more than paperback sets that I see at the bookstore?

Great question! In the world of offset printing - not a delicate nor passionate world - volume is everything. The higher the volume of books printed, the lower the cost per book. Micro-batch, artisanal custom print runs on large offset printing machines (used in order to deliver the best possible cover, recycled paper, font, etc.) will inevitably result in higher costs per book than for mass printing by large publishing houses. The cost of boxing the volumes together adds yet another hurdle. It is the author’s belief, however, that the Delicate, Passionate Reader will appreciate the thoroughness taken and will understand. To read at lower cost, all five e-books run $35.95 total; you can have e-books printed at Mimeo or other similar printing service. To slip into the Delicate, Passionate World for free, the draft-version audio files including curated music snippets are available for anyone to listen to on YouTube.
