According to LA POSTE Tracking, mine departed the Great Britain postal exchange on November 20 but hasn’t been punched in on the western side of the Pond as yet.  Maybe next week!

Mine arrived yesterday ... I am very surprised that it did since we are experiencing a Canada wide Postal rotating strike and there are hundreds of trucks full of parcels and mail that need to be delivered.

I’m sure many of you that ordered one will mount the prints on the Garage Wall in 2020 :) it will look great the prints included are high quality and nice to look at.

I think I will cut the signature from Paul Bracq to size have it laminated and mount it inside my glove box :)

They are for sale on the Paul Bracq Ateliers web site under the heading store (www.paulbracq.com).  As of the time I am typing this the calendars are still shown for sale.

Received No 26/100 today!  23 days door to door.  Very nice.  I must say very well packaged.

I just noted that the image on the front--the "cut out" of the Pagoda (but sans the "les ateliers" text) was originally designed as a stainless steel sculpture, desk size. He had it on his website for sale a couple of years ago, but was going through some, er, "discussions" with DBAG about selling something with that three point star on it. It was going to be, like the calendar, a limited edition.

I suspect the discussions were not fruitful. It is no longer available or he chose not to make it.

#69/100 arrived water damaged in transit.  Am e-mailing Boris to see if there is still a replacement available.

Received mine the other day, #60. Exquisite.
I emailed Boris if the Paul Bracq front black license plate is available for sale.
Lets see what he has to say.

Mike,

I’m sorry to read your’s arrived damaged. I assume you send Boris a message and photo. I just send him a E-mail as well. Let us hope he will post you a replacement. I provided him with a link to this thread and Reply 17.

I was out of town from Saturday evening until yesterday evening, so did not see until today the reply Boris sent to my e-mail from last week that he will dispatch a replacement free of charge immediately.  ;^)
