PRE-Order ‘80º North’ // Arctic Photos & Stories special edition hardcover book!
We’re printing a limited run of just 250 hand-numbered, hard-bound, special 1st Edition books, with a few special surprises inside from Andy, Mia & James at 59º North, and the s/v Delos crew of Brian, Karen, Brady, Alex & Kiril.
FULL WONKA! Surprise surprise...that little extra Sailing SV Delos something we teased in the 80 NORTH coffee table book is revealed today! Since we can’t ship 250 books around the world to sign them all, instead we printed 250, 6x9” postcards - using 4 different photos - that have been to James in the UK, Kiril in Vietnam and Antigua for Brian, Karin, Brady, Alex, Mia & Andy to sign!
One card will be inserted into each book before shipping! AND best yet - ONE single postcard was signed in GOLD INK, to be inserted into book no. 80 of 250...we’ll randomly select one of the orders, and if you’re the lucky golden postcard holder, you’ll get a FREE 1-week passage on either ISBJÖRN or ICE BEAR with 59 NORTH, a $3,400 value! There’s still about 100 copies left to pre-order, so go get ‘em!
Can’t wait to see who will come sailing with us! Thanks to James Austrums Film and Media for coming up with the idea! Postcard photos include Texas Bar, Mega Iceberg en route to Iceland, Henningsvaer in Lofoten & ‘The Three ISBJÖRN’s’ from Svalbard!
Price includes shipping to USA (book currently in production, & will ship ~mid March). If you want to order in Internationally, there may be a small additional shipping charge, to be billed at time of shipping, but order as usual to reserve your copy!
T-Shirts & Coffee
Our coffee is small-batch roasted at former Isbjorn crewmember Sean's own Fat Puppy Coffee in rural Pennsylvania & shipped out fresh, within a week of roasting. All coffee orders go directly to Sean, and he ships straight from his boutique roastery. We get a few bucks from each sale, which mainly goes to support the podcast.
Similarly, our t-shirt orders go through a UK-based company called TeeMill. We chose to work with them because they use all-organic cotton raw materials and the shirts are made in a factory powered entirely by wind power. Outsourcing also helps us since we're constantly on the move and have nowhere to keep stock! We get a cut of the proceeds. Want to pitch us a cool t-shirt design? We love new ideas, so send them our way!
With the publishing in September 2017 of Yves Gelinas' Jean-du-Sud & the Magick Byrd,' 59 North, Ltd. has officially entered the printed book game! Andy & Mia are book nerds, and being on the production-side has been a blast & a great learning experience. Yves' book is the first of what we hope to be many similar projects. Have an idea you want published? Contact us to talk about it!
