Hardcover box, gold and silver foil accents on the book spines, faux leather front and back covers, 100% post-consumer recycled paper, designer font … this thing is the real deal and a rare beauty! For those looking to catch Gregory - or Vivien - between the covers (so-to-speak), here they are, suspended like fancy specimens in amber and ready to gorgeously display on your bookshelf.

OK, but why does this item cost way 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. Making micro-batch, artisanal custom print runs on large offset printing machines (needed in order to deliver the best possible covers, choice of paper, selective font, etc.) will inevitably result in higher costs per book. The cost of boxing the volumes together adds yet another hurdle.

To read at lower cost, all five e-books run ~$35.95 total. You can have e-books printed out at Mimeo or other similar printing service. To slip into the Delicate, Passionate World entirely for free, the draft-version audio files including curated music snippets are available for anyone to listen to on YouTube.
