Still waiting here as well. Ordered on July 26. Emailed Piotr on Friday to ask for a shipping confirmation and figure I'll hear back early this week sometime.

For the folks that are using reinforcing rings on the holes - are you doing both sides or just one. It looks like if you do both sides that 300 charts might not fit properly in the binder. Yes? No?

Both sides, the charts fit in the binder ok.
Make sure you buy the "vinyl" rings. When I made my first purchase, I misread the meaning of "white paper hole re-inforcers" on the box; they were infact made out of paper.

My copy arrived today in great shape almost exactly 2 months after ordering. No matter how many reviews or comments I had read, I was still taken aback by the sheer size and weight of this magnificent work.

Thanks Piotr, I will treasure this always.

Off to the store to buy 2400 reinforcing rings. That's a project!

Get your buddies together and have a reinforcing ring party. Just don't serve hot wings or barbeque.

Congrat Jim ! Welcome among the happy owners of this work.
If you have help from one person it's not so long.

Book? I received mine last week. I was unprepared for the HUGE size of this work. It's more like the Ten Commandments that Charlton Heston carried in the film. In fact, I am going to have a new profile picture done exactly that way, with me holding the Atlas like Tablets of the Law! Living in the desert in Israel that seems appropriate.

Hey, I got 16 pages (32 charts) stuck with reinforcing rings before dinner today. Only 266 charts to go. I could get more done faster, but I always have help from the new kitten.

EDIT: In an earlier post, I said that I needed 2400 reinforcement rings. I forgot there were two charts per page, so I only needed a little under 1200. Much better!

I have done about 70% of them thus far. And I am only doing one side. It took about 2 hours

A pair of fine tipped tweezers is a big help in getting the rings centered accurately.

I don't really use mine much; mainly I just admire it. I'm very careful about turning the pages, so I only put reinforcements on pages where there appears to be a hole becoming ragged or stressed. I do keep a packet of the reinforcements in the pocket of the atlas, though.

Never received a confirmation, besides the one from Paypal and my bank statement saing it was paid.

People in line waiting have you at least receiveved confirmation from the seller that they acknowledege receipt and they have reserved a copy.

I ordered around Jul 29th, never got a peep of confirmation other than from Paypal. Still waiting on it.

Rex, did your copy arrive via USPS? Did they just drop it off or you had to collect it?

Core, I'll jump in to answer your question. After the PayPal payment, I heard nothing until the USPS left a delivery attempt notice almost exactly two months after the order. I then had to go to the PO and collect it according to the notice. They offered no second delivery attempt which was fine with me as the PO is only a mile from my house. Piotr never answered an inquiry I made about a week before it showed up. Yours will probably show up in the next couple of days.
