BOOKS: Please note that each printed book you order is individually made by one of my professional book-printing vendors. There may be minor differences across different prints of the same books and/or across books printed by different vendors, including, but not limited to, slight variances in color fidelity and binding type. My printing vendors work very hard to keep their product as consistent as possible, this variation is a normal occurrence and is not considered a manufacturing defect or a defect in workmanship and does not qualify for a reprint.
