Greetings and salutations!

We're excited to announce that 2020 Wall Calendar PDFs are now available for download! Links are being sent via Backerkit. If they're not in your email inbox already, they should be there shortly. We hope you love the 2020 Wall Calendar as much as we do!

We've been busy busy busy packing and shipping for the last four days, and delighted to be doing so! We're working hard to have the remainder sent by the end of this look for your rewards to be arriving soon.

If you haven't yet filled out your surveys, please take a few minutes to complete (see the previous two updates for more information)...we're excited to send your rewards, but we need your shipping details first.

And a quick update on the Mini Book of Puzzles PDF...we had hoped to have that ready by this weekend, but we need a bit more time to complete the final edits. They should be finished within the next week or so. Thank you for your patience.

Wishing everyone a most wonderful week ahead,

Jason T. Ott, Grandiloquent Word of the Day

To all of our wonderful backers:

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for your magnificent generosity and support. Thanks to you, we are delighted to be sending the Grandiloquent Word of the Day 2020 Wall Calendars to print… and to be creating the other splendid rewards for you, as well!

Let the quaffery and rejoicing commence!

My sincere hope is that these calendars brighten your day while expanding your vocabulary in an entertaining fashion. Language is a powerful force of creation and connection, and to know that people are discussing, sharing, laughing, and learning these grandiloquent words with family and friends is such a great joy!

Thank you for supporting a project that furthers the promotion of educated and enlightened discourse!


With the deepest appreciation for your patronage, I remain,

Greetings and salutations,

Splendid news, grandiloquent friends...your munificent support has unlocked the first stretch goal! Huzzah! All backers who have pledged for tiers with printed calendars shall now receive one Grandiloquent Bookmark with their rewards!

And thanks to your generous support, we have now added a second stretch goal...additional Grandiloquent Bookplates, featuring an illustration by Walter Crane!

If pledges reach $25,000 or more, all backers who have pledged for any of the reward tiers with printed calendars will also receive two of these bookplates! And if you've pledged $100 or more, you'll receive the same number of these bookplates as the originals in the tier (so 10 of each, 20 of each, etc.)

Printed on high quality, acid-free, self-adhesive paper, this wizardly design shall cast a spell to mark your beloved books as yours and yours alone!

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day 2020 Wall Calendar Kickstarter Campaign closes at 11:59 pm EST on Thursday, November there is still time to share with others and help unlock the second stretch goal. Thank you, as always, for all that you're doing to bring this project to life. You are truly magnificent!
