When can I pre-order the book?

The pre-order is available from July 5th to September 30th. After this date, the book will no longer be available for purchase.

Will the book be available after the pre-order period?

No, the book is offered in a time-limited edition. After September 30th, it will be declared “Sold Out” and will no longer be printed.

Can I pre-order multiple books at the same time?

Yes, you can pre-order multiple books simultaneously. In fact, we encourage placing orders for multiple books at once. This approach is not only convenient for you, but also eco-friendly, as it reduces the environmental impact of shipping. Additionally, ordering multiple books in one go means you will only pay for shipping once, making it more cost-effective for you.

What happens if in my order I want to include a pre-ordered book and a pre-ordered magazine?

You cannot add both in the same order because books and magazines have different timelines. In fact, they will be shipped separately due to different pre-order schedules (books have a pre-order period of 3 months, magazines of only 1 month). By handling shipments separately, we ensure timely delivery of each type of publication. Please consider this when placing your order, especially if you need certain items by a specific date.

How are the copies of the book made?

Each book is designed and made in Italy, ensuring high quality standards. Each copy is unique, signed by the author, numbered, and considered rare.

How can I track the shipment of my book?

You will receive a tracking number via email once the shipment has departed, allowing you to follow your package’s journey.
