Default New M51 Book with All Digits

Hello to all. I just wanted to let you know we've created a book containing all of M51's digits. It will be available by 9/16 of this year.

The link on our site is up and we will be adding photos over the next week or so:
https://www.exatextposters.com/the-5.../bk-m25-02.htm

In the meanwhile, you can see what the M51 book will look like by viewing a related listing:
https://www.exatextposters.com/the-f.../bk-m25-01.htm
The photos for this digits of pi book are mostly complete and will give you a solid idea of our approach to the M51 book.

As always, questions are welcome.

Some basic info about the M51 book:
# pages: About 170
Binding: Hard cover
Print Size: Small so it fits in a reasonable number of pages, but a touch bigger than our posters. Font size is close to 2pt.
Magnifiers are available.
Can be customized.

I'm really happy to finally be producing books and not just posters, since a book format makes it easier to accommodate M52 and beyond, and other ideas.

Thanks for listening.

As a book-lover (versus the e-books), I may have to get one of these. Plus, there will be the image when the wife picks it up from the nightstand to glance inside to see what I'm reading.

The 51st Mersenne Prime Digits Book is now available. Sorry for the delay. It's listed on our site at:
https://www.exatextposters.com/the-5.../bk-m25-02.htm

I should be able to get the Amazon listing up Monday by end of day.

About shipping, if you don't see your country available, please let me know and I'll add it as long as we haven't had trouble in the past with shipping to there. Keep in mind that international shipping won't be cheap since the packed book is about 2.5 pounds. In the USA, I'm able to offer the USPS version of ground service which is cheaper and fairly reliable.

As always questions and comments are welcome.

Media mail is your best bet for this. It is under $4

I'm aware of issues with media mail though. Packages can be inspected at will by postal employees to make sure nobody is sending non-media items. I'll look into it though to see what the latest and greatest rules are.

Cool! Gotta get me one of these!

If appropriate, I'll let you know my experience getting these atoms into Bimshire. Nowadays I usually have stuff shipped to a forwarder, who consolidate my incoming packages into "packets" for air- or sea- transport.

Thanks for continuing to bring these tangible "artifacts" of potential interest to our attention. I appreciate that this kind of work is more than trivial!

It should be written that the 51st known Mersenne prime.

Your point is taken. I can update the product listings with that verbiage.

Definitely not trivial to produce. But fun to come up with.

When I first read this and saw M51, it sort of threw me. This would be an interesting book.

Another possible consideration with media mail -- there's no insurance.
