Hi Reuben,
I just read on Ladytron's facebook profile that you have this book on Blurb. I checked the book preview and got amazed, the place is magical as the pictures themselves.
I'm buying one copy! Could it be possible to get it autographed? Maybe in your next gig in San Diego (which btw will be on my b-day)? That would be awesome!
Hope you win the competition dude!
Excellent work!!
