I think that the title is referring to a Schulze quote about “natural” instruments vs electronic instruments. He said then that “violins didn’t grow on trees either” or something like this.

Of course I was.

Indeed - here's the full quotation:

    "A synthesizer is a machine and therefore not a human instrument? That is nonsense. Quartz, copper and crystals are as natural as wood, strings and bows of the violin. I mean, a guitar or a violin doesn't grow on a tree either..."

I just asked Olaf. He says orders can be placed from next Friday, December 11 on, and copies will start to ship out around December 19.

Here You are - just about 30 quick pictures (of varying quality) from a few random pages.
Of course, there are more pages with just plain text than with photos all in all. And it's from the German edition, because that's the one I have...

https://we.tl/t-XSohvU4rqJ

Since it's impossible to post (larger) pictures in the forum directly, I just uploaded them to WeTransfer.

Anyone can download them, but please note that the download is only available for a limited time and expires January 4.

And no, I won't upload them again for latecomers... Cool

I agree that it's quite a steep price that probably only a true fan will be willing to pay.

It's the fate of such independent projects though that production costs for small runs of books are high, and the explosion of shipping costs in recent years isn't Olaf's fault, either...

(Some readers remarked on FB that Edgar Froese's autobiography was even more expensive, but less coherent btw. Then of course, it was still by the man himself...)

The shipping cost to Sweden was 10 Euros. Is it a so big difference (6Euros) in the shipping cost? Sad
The book is absolutely worth every Euro cent (and You will get an absolute fantastic double album too as a bonus!).
Yes, is not cheap, but very well written, well researched, has plenty of COLOUR photos of very good quality (think just to that shitty ultimate critical discography with plenty of shitty b/w photos, erroneus information etc. etc. which also will cost You about 45 Euros, including shipping).
But the point here is (like Michael Brückner wrote) that the book is well researched, appeared in limited edition (which of course will cost much more), it is a private pressing, and it's an excellent book. I don't think that Olaf will became millionaire after selling out the books (probably He will barely get back his spent moneys), but surely it wasn't Olaf's goal. He wanted to write a great book about the Man, the Artist, whom He's respecting and IMHO Olaf succeded in that!
