    Great news! Happy to hear a landrace book is on it’s way!
    I’ve been saving seeds for some years now and can’t wait to read this book and deepen my knowledge and understanding on landracing specifically.

    Maybe Joseph will chime in here but in the meantime, here's his gardening thread where he's looking for beta readers:  Photos of Joseph Lofthouse's Garden

    The book is currently undergoing a second (or is it 3rd?) wave of beta reading. Expecting to release it on IngramSpark, and Amazon in the next few months.

    The printed book, Landrace Gardening, is now available.

    http://Lulu.com sells hardback and paperback editions.  

    Amazon and (some of) it's national affiliates offer the paperback version.

    Both are printing in premium color.

    Lulu pays me better royalties, the printing has fewer glitches, and they protect the books better during shipping. Amazon ships quicker, and sometimes offers a lower retail price and/or free shipping.

    I really struggled regarding which paper and ink to use. I finally settled on premium color, and am very pleased with the results. I feel satisfied with the reviews and attention that the book has received.

    I'm working towards getting it carried by physical bookstores around the world.

    Hi Joseph. Amazon.co.uk still doesn’t have it available. My portal to europe for your book.
    I am trying lulu, since you get more royalties, had to give all my details before knowing if they even ship out of USA. But they do and for a third of the shipping costs of amazon com.
    Looking forward to learning your techniques and logic to landracing.
    Thank you for all you do!
