If the atlases shipped out on the 12th, there's still a good chance we'll receive them before Christmas.

my guess is Charles does most of the work by himself,
or a few helpers,
so it may take some time,
especially with xmas mailings

I just saw on the LPOD webpage that the first 88 copies of the Atlas were shipped today. According the description, a bubble mailer was used for packaging, not a more sturdier cardboard envelope. If you know the harsh treatment during postal transport... not sure if the bubble mailer will protect the shipped Atlases sufficiently, in particular on the numerous international orders. I just sent an e-mail to Chuck Wood about this concern.

I have sent back items that are bent or damaged because of insufficient packaging. A couple sheets of cardboard as a stiffener would have been better than nothing. I hope the Atlas will arrive OK.

Those bubble envelopes are pretty tough. I've never had anything that was sent in one arrive with any damage.
