The first printing of Jeremy Keith’s HTML5 For Web Designers has sold out.
For a book about web forms, semantics, and the history of markup, it’s done pretty well:
- The book sold 1,000 copies during the first hour of pre-sales.
- It sold 5,000 copies during the first 24 hours of pre-sales.
- The first printing sold out within two months.
Haven’t ordered yours yet, and now they’re sold out? Not to worry: a second printing is in the works; orders will ship the week of July 26.
So where’s my book, already?
We ship worldwide. Orders generally ship within 3 days and take 7–10 days to arrive. Some orders take longer, typically because of hold-ups at your local post office, over which we have no control. (Intriguingly, foreign orders shipped quickly, in many cases arriving much sooner than US orders.) We have expedited all remaining shipments to get you your book faster.
We ship via US Postal Service, so no tracking numbers are available.
If you ordered before June 30 and still have not received your order, please be patient a few more days, and thank you for bearing with our learning curve. We know a lot about web design, but we’re still getting the hang of interpreting what mail houses and the US Postal Service mean by “guaranteed fast shipping.”
If you need to speak to someone about your order, write to us.
