Pre-Order Bonus signed copies of The Urban Sketcher with print : Sold Out! Thank you everyone!

October 22, 2014

I’m very pleased to say, we’ve shipped a huge stack of books. They’re going all over the US and Canada, but also to Spain, Italy, Australia, South Africa, and Singapore.

To everyone who ordered before Oct 22, I will be contacting all of you. At the time of this note I still have a lot of email to work through. Thank very much for your support, ordering the book in advance. It means a lot to me, seeing all the places in the world the book is going.

For all of you all over the world – here’s a view of Montreal in the winter, from the window of the art department at UQAM. (Where I go sometimes for life drawing). You can see why I want to visit you in all those nice warm countries.


This was one of the last things I did for the book, and it didn’t actually make it in for various space and time reasons. But it did get a second chance at life – it’s hanging (soon) in the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor ‘Open Water’ show in Toronto.  (Oct 28-Nov 21,  John B. Aird Gallery, 900 Bay St., Toronto, Canada).

Please note: You may still order a signed copy of The Urban Sketcher!  However my pre-order bonus deal (free shipping, and collector’s print) is now closed. We have shipped out 100 of these special copies.

If you would still enjoy a signed copy, from here onward, due to the practical realities of postage and my cost to order US books in Canadian dollars, it must be at full cover price plus shipping. Just email me and we’ll sort out the rates from Montreal to wherever you live.

One more thing – many people have asked, “Where should I order the book to give you (the author) the best value?” It’s tremendous so many people want to know this! In truth, I make the most profit if you buy the e-book from North Light. But, I’m sure you mostly want the paper copy – which can be found here [The Urban Sketcher]. But I also get a little bonus if you use this Affiliate Sales link on Amazon: [Order from Amazon]. These two are special links that tell the retailers I referred you, giving me a small tip. So, if you have a chance, please pass those links on! (Thanks!)

Ok – off to scan the images from Ithaca (well, and to go to the post office) ~ Marc

    Marc, my book arrived last night and I have called in that I won’t be in to work today. Thank you for the lovely dedication and your print! You really are encouraging. (also known as Yellow Rose on Amazon)

    My signed copy with bonus print arrived this week–thank you!

    And I love the above Montreal view–so unusual yet distinctive.
