I am interested in buying one of those nice unified heart pendants with the smooth leather strap on them that lots of people seem to be wearing on the tour photos. Can someone please tell me where I can get one?

Are you looking for the wooden hearts? If so Eva is the person to ask!

Been following this forum / the pages for quite a while now (huge thanks for creating and maintaining them) but only now joined so hi All! Was stupid enough to miss buying the Tourbook last night in Helsinki, do you know whether it would be possible to get it afterwards from somewhere? Also, do you know whether the Cup of Longing -mug (which was sold out yesterday) or the T-shirt with the Book of Longing -cover would be available to buy somewhere. Genuinely hope so :)

Thanks Jarkko for the update and thanks to EIja for the lovely photos.
I wouldn't mind just an empty box to frame. It looks like a collectible.

I'm your man - I mean woman, Tinderella, and I'm in Dublin at the moment, carrying some nice wooden pendants with leather straps :D

The merchandising guy at the stall last night in Dublin said they only got 9 pairs of cufflinks between BOTH stalls (but they had all nine at his stall).

I'm going back on Friday and hope to pick up some but he said he couldn't guarantee they'd have more because the merchandisers haven't confirmed they'd be giving them more stock.

I've loved the updated merchandise this tour, and got myself the nice 'pen' tshirt and the lovely blue hummingbird silk scarf. I was happy to get a look at the new tour brochure, and very nice it was too, loved the finish on the cover, and the stickers were a fun addition.

BUT

speaking from the point of view of my 'day job', as an editor at a large publishing house (think orange spines and a little black and white bird), I have to say I was taken aback by the quality of the text inside - obviously compiled from various sources and with no universal style applied. A basic edit, or even a proofread, would have avoided such howlers as Sharon Robinson playing to a 'captive audience' in the US (I sincerely hope a 'captivated audience' was intended ;-) ), and would have fixed the mishmash of styles in the different text sections. As the brochures are not cheap, and the overall slickness of the design was impressive, such a small but important part of the whole should not have been overlooked.

I don't know who's in charge of such things, but if you want to improve the text I'm offering a free, professional edit from an experienced editor (ie, me!). Get in touch!

lol, Ruth.. I can imagine that when you've learned to pay attention to such things at work, it's very hard to ignore them off work. On a similar note, my mother (who owns a graphic design and digital printing business) went through the same brochure explaining to me how it could have been made a lot better design-wise... It's what we call "job perversion" here. :razz:

Lol Stamatina, glad I'm not the only one that has problems taking off the 'work hat'. I'm sure 90% of people wouldn't even notice the stuff that bugged me. Maybe me and your mum should work on the next brochure together and come up with something amazing!

Have to confess that I balked intitially when it came to buying the
brochure. I thought perhaps I had misheard the price (!) but seeing
as it is a unique memento, I quickly yielded to temptation.

However, I do think that the cost for T-shirts etc was far too high.
£20-25 in London, if memory serves. This is nearly double to what
I would expect to pay.

If anyone is looking for a cheaper alternative, maybe not the
same range as there is on offer at the concert venues but some classic
designs nonetheless, check out this website:

I'm desperately looking for an "Order of the unified hearts" lapel pin in BLUE.
So if somebody of you could buy it for me and be kind enough to send it to Poland I'd be extremely thankful. Of course all costs I'd cover by PayPal immediately please PM me. Many thanks in the advance.
