Exotica Moderne No. 11 Special Edition
NOTE: We expect to go to press near the end of April with printing taking two weeks. Order fulfillment will then take approximately another two weeks with customers receiving their orders after that. Exotica Moderne ships 1st Class US Postal Service and delivery times vary by location. The postal service still seems to be taking longer than usual to deliver items so we ask for your patience.
