ACHOF Mike Goldstein Unsung Heroes Book Project Reward Descriptions

ACHOF/Mike Goldstein’s Unsung Heroes Book Project Rewards Descriptions

Now that you’ve read a bit about what’s going to be included in my new book, I’m offering those of you who might be looking to either start collecting album cover-based fine art – or add to your existing album art collections – by offering you prints from a number of the people featured in the book that I saved from my RockPoP Gallery days at very special “once-in-a-lifetime” prices.

The purchase of these special rewards will add greatly to your appreciation of the talents of the people that made them and, as many of them are still active, I’m hoping that it gives you the incentive to visit those artist’s sites (you’ll find those links in the Artist’s Bio pages on the ACHOF web site)  to see what else they might have available. If you love album cover art as much as I do, I’m sure that you’ll find something you’ll like in the list below – there are hundreds of prints available.

If you’d like to see larger images of the prints than what’s shown on the site, simply send me an email (curator@albumcoverhalloffame.com) and I’ll be happy to send you one if it’s available.

As the rewards are claimed, I’ll work hard to keep the list of what’s still available updated. Of course, if you reserve something that has already been claimed, I’ll notify you immediately so that you can choose something else or change the level of your support.

One note on shipping charges – I’m doing my best to keep these reasonable and to a minimum for you. The book will weigh nearly 4lbs. and measure at least 9″ square, so it should fit into some of the standard mailing envelopes and boxes I’ve used. I prefer to use the USPS for shipping as they offer both package tracking and insurance – very helpful on shipments both here in the U.S. and overseas. Overseas customers – I have to apologize in advance for the added costs for shipping. They’ve gone up rather dramatically over the past couple of years, and there aren’t as many options as there used to be, so I can only hope that it doesn’t dissuade you from supporting me at this point.

If you’re supporting me at the higher levels, please note that your prints and books will be shipped separately in packaging that will keep your products safe. These cost a bit more, but they’re worth it – trust me, after shipping thousands of prints to customers around the world when I had my gallery, I’ve learned (the hard way) that careful package prep and quality containers are the ONLY way to ship to customers – at least those you want to keep happy!

Thanks again for your sponsorship, and “happy hunting”.
