We are happy to announce that the second edition of “Harry Potter un der filosofisher shteyn”, made available for pre-orders the 8th of February, was sold out on the 10th of March. The 2nd edition was shipped in late March and will be arriving to most customers in April. However, there’ll be Corona related delays. We know, for example, that the postal services in the US and Canada are moving slower than usual and that Israel, South America, Mexico and some countries in the far East like China and Indonesia (not Japan though) are currently not accepting mail from the EU at all. Packages to the latter countries will be stored by PostNord Logistics and will ship as soon as the restrictions are lifted. Please contact us if you have questions regarding this.
We are currently working on a 3rd edition, but things are progressing slowly because of the current situation.
