is available as both e-Books and hardcopy. Generally, the inventory
of hardcopy is limited and only produced from time-to-time.
Hardcopy is always available first to registered TG2 owners. They
receive advance notice and have first rights.
is staffed by former heads of trading and the like, we are not "printers".
Though we are the "publishers" of our books, we subcontract the
printing, warehousing, shipping, etc.
Hardcopy inventory is based on the
number of orders placed during the "announcement period". If you wish
to be certain of obtaining hardcopy, please be sure to place your order
during these "announcement periods". "Announcement periods" are
announced via direct emails to TG2Registered owners, then after a short
interval via emails to ARTNews subscribers.
The delivery cycle is less than 4-6
weeks when there is inventory. "Announcement periods" are typically a
few weeks, and the delivery cycle for newly created books following an
"announcement period" can be more than 8 weeks.
In order to reduce various production, shipping, and logistical issues,
hardcopy is now produced in a new format. The font, spacing, etc have
been up-dated to permit all of the original content to fit into a fewer
number of pages. This is particularly important for the multi-volume
books, which are now all produced as a single physical volume.
Typically, the new format limits the number of pages. For example,
books formerly requiring 1,200 pages, are now adjusted to fit into about
700-800 pages. The book description still list the "core" number of
pages, and the e-Books still maintain the original luxurious spacing, but
the hardcopy version are updated.
The books are still quite big and heavy, making shipping somewhat costly.
There are dramatic volume discounts, and shipping is also dramatically
reduced with larger orders. Hardcopy can be purchased or combined with
e-Books so that you can have electronic copies on your work and home pc's,
and your laptop.
(swaps and upgrades)
e-Books are both swappable and upgradeable with/to hardcopy. e-Books
have many advantages such as portability, searchable, and automatic updates
for new versions.
Swap: e-Books can be swapped with hardcopy. That is, you may
exchange your e-Book for hardcopy, or vice versa. There is an
administration fee and fees for delivery as appropriate. Typically,
the administration fee is about 30% of the price of the book.
Upgrade: e-Books or hardcopy can be "upgraded" so that you own both
formats. This has the benefits of both worlds. Typically, the
fee for the upgrade is 50% of the price of the book, plus any applicable
shipping and handling charges.
NOTE: upgrades are still
considered "single licenses". That is, if you own a
hardcopy and an
e-Book copy under an upgrade arrangements, you have a single licenses.
This means, for example, that you may not sell or trade an element of a
single license independently. Put differently, upgrades are not
permitted substitutes for multiple licenses. If you wish to save
money on multiple licenses/copies for a group, then please contact us for
TG2 Custom Features
TG2 books can be produced on customised basis. This may be
something as simple as your company name and logo, to more complex tailoring
of content. Please enquire further.
TG2 Security Features
TG2 books are produced with special encryption features. Each and
every book is unique and can be traced back to its original owner. As
such, any copyright infringement can be traced to the original owner.
Please be sure to enforce the agreements, as carelessness may result in you
or your employer facing legal recourse.
TG2 Hardcopy Delivery Costs
TG2 books are generally large and heavy. This makes delivery
expensive, and this is beyond our control. We subcontract warehousing
and shipping with the agreement that the subcontractor charges less than
courier fees. This means that these fees will always be less compared
to, say, the quote on UPS's website, though the subcontractor is free to
choose whatever delivery process suites them.
