Rarely Asked Questions
_____ January 17 2021 update
The tragic passing of Rob Bell, the talended artist and visionary man that created Zonotopia and the Two Trees featured on the cover of the book reignited some interest for the book that was featured early 2020 on 5 pages of the upscale British magazine ICON and on the BM insta feed.
Because of this new interest, we put back the Paypal button.
Now, wherever you are in the world, the price is the same, $70 with shipping included.
For the USA where most of our customers live, this is the price because now it comes from overseas.
The size of the package for one book where we live is considered as a letter (less than 3 cm thick) which offers the affordable (!) international rate of $25, included in the Paypal button.

Why your site is so minimalist?
It could be seen as an artistic statement, a reflection on the bare nature of the desert, an initiatic experience to unlock you outer instinct, a Situationist respons to the 21st century angst. No!
This endeavour is a one-man-show in the pure ultra-risky entrepreneurial spirit of make or break.
Add to the equation, an artist with limited web-designing skill and you get a retro-looking site so out-of-fashion that it should have a following cult and be a trending item for the next 20 secondes.
"I am someone without the sense of humor, is this serious?"
We know all too well that sense of humor nowadays, in 2021, is a rare commodity.
Sit back, relax, you are tiptoing in the multi-faceted world of Black Rock City, bouncing from harsh reality to wacky weirdness, this is a state of mind.
Reading the book you should get used to it.
What about shipping?
I see your point.
Because this part doesn't require too much brain power, we know how to do it quite well. We Do.
Over the years, for the first book, we have shipped US and International 2000 packages without (0) any major incident.
So far we have had no complain whatsoever even from our few French customers.
Usually the team (me, myself and I) ship the book within 24 hours of the order. Depending on the mood we might add goodies,
stickers, postcards from BM years past, early buyers got two mini-posters (now super collector items).
Now, in 2021, we ship safely and fast from overseas, using the international letter rate of $25 included in the buying price.
What is Black Rock City?
Buy the book!
May I return my used book?
That is the first time we have this request.
We gladly suggest that you keep it and gift it to your campmate who just lost the latest Martha Stewart's" How to redecorate your gloomy hexayurt in 5 easy steps".
How can I help?
Thank you for this question. First, we are looking for a web designer who will design a sleak and trendy site. In the true sharing and gifting spirit of the desert, we welcome volunteers who will discover true enlightment within the share of one's love and the universal joy of working to save the planet.
Second, someone who knows how to promote intelligently this book will earn my eternal gratitude.
