December Book Tour for the Sold Out Best-Seller

With the selling out of the first printing of the book, I’ve needed to postpone a few dates on my continuing book tour to support and celebrate the California Field Atlas. The dates at both the Coloma Grange and the Burlingame Library are postponed until the New Year. As for these other dates, I am not actually certain there are too many copies of the book left so please be punctual to maximizing your chances of getting a copy. I am so appreciative of your support and the love that you’ve shown me and this project. If you would like to get on the backorder list for one of the first copies of the second printing which will be here on January 1st, please email me at -Obi

My first best-seller list! The California Field Atlas comes in at No.3 for Northern California Trade Nonfiction as reported by Bay Area News Group. Thank you friends, for all of your support with this project. There are no more copies of the first printing available online from me or my publisher, HEYDAY.  I am saving the final 50 copies of the first printing for my appearance at Patagonia, Palo Alto, next Saturday (12/02) 6pm – 8pm. There are only a few copies left available in bookstores around the Bay Area. If your local independent bookstore doesn’t have any left, try Barnes & Noble. Amazon is selling a few copies of the sold-out first printing for a couple of hundred dollars. If you buy those, I will send you a card inscribed any way you want that you can put in the book. I went City Lights Books tonight to see if my book was on the selves of that San Francisco temple, a life-long dream of mine, but they told me that they can’t keep it in stock and they sold their last copy yesterday. What a delightful problem. I thank you all dearly for your excellent support of this, my love letter to this place I love. #californiafieldatlas

I am offering hand-painted reproductions of your favorite maps from the California Field Atlas. I work by commission so you tell me what you want. The paintings are $150, including tax, mounting and shipping. They measure 5.5″ wide by 7.5″ tall and are on 120# watercolor paper. I can reproduce any of your favorite #trailpaintings from the book also. I’m booked for a week or two, so to get them before the holidays, I need your order now. Email me and we can talk about it. I want to hear your stories. Thank you, Obi #californiafieldatlas
