First of all:
Thank you to everyone who contributed for the fan book! I am still waiting on a few people's entries, including my own. So we will have around 14 'staches, which is more than I was expecting. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!
I will be sending the book off on Tuesday. If you missed the cut-off date of the 3rd, bust your butt and get it to me by Monday night!
In case I didn't tell you, we are making two copies of the book. One will be sent to Canongate (or his American publisher), and one to his record company. I don't want to send one and have it get tossed out without getting to him. This way, there's a greater chance he'll receive a copy. I will, of course, put a note with each one to apologize in case he gets both of them.
I know what I want to do with the cover, and I think you will all understand when you see it. Design-wise, I will try to go with things that make sense. I will try to make you all proud. I'm going to start the book with a letter from all of us, just a general (yet 'stache-a-riffic) letter of birthday wishes and thanks from all the fans.
What random things do you all know that Mr. Cave likes? Or stuff he's referenced or sums him up a bit? Leave me huge, big-ass lists. There's a reason. The reason being, collages to decorate the pages. I don't want every page to be full of black crows and bunnies, but y'know. :D GO NUTS!
