    Ordering John Coffer's book and DVD?

    For those of you who have ordered either of these or both how long did it take to get to you?

    Did the online orders go smoothly or should I just post a letter with the money?

    John is pretty prompt with his mail. I think the on-line could take longer.
    I'd give it 1.5-2 weeks.
    Holga: if it was any more analog, you'd need a chisel.

    Mine turned up in the UK after 10 days or so. I mailed the money to JC.

    Regards,
    Neil.

    I thought Coffer only accepts orders by mail, not online.

    I don't think he takes online orders. You can email him but your email goes to someone else and that person may take a few weeks getting the emails to John. You best bet is to write him a letter and send a check. He will respond promptly.

    John's manual is one of the best. You may also consider Quinn Jacobson's new book, " The Contemporary Wet Plate Collodion Experience" It is also a very good reference.

    I figured snail mail would be the best for him, but not convenient for me. Oh well. Mail it is.

    I will start with Coffers book because he has a DVD. Then I'll tackle Jacobson's book.

    Just started into Quinn's book and am finding it a great help. Also sent off a snail order to JC yesterday for his package.

    Well here it is October 3rd. and I just received John's manual and DVDs. It took only 6 days from the time I mailed the order to him via snail mail! Pretty good from a man with no phone or internet connection! Complete with a nice, handwritten note as well. Highly recommended.
