Notes:
Released to coincide with the completion of Everywhere At The End Of Time.
This bonus download edition from the archives is presented from the Ivan Seal / The Caretaker exhibition "Everywhere, an empty bliss" at FRAC Auvergne in Clermont-Ferrand, France (April 7th till June 16th, 2019).

Notes accompanying the release:

"Work on 'Everywhere, at the end of time' was all consuming
as you can imagine. All work and no play, all work and no play.
In celebration of its completion and only for a limited time
here is a surprise golden farewell.
Compliments of the house.
Offering you one last chance to raise a charged glass for
those we lost along the way, for all the works, for those ghosts
from our past, for our uncertain future and for The Caretaker.
You are of course welcome to purchase me a drink if you find
this work to be of personal value.
As the old saying goes "I'm the type of guy who likes to know
who's buying their drinks, Lloyd."
Thanks eternally for your support.
C'est fini."

Sad to read people saying I lied about the release of this book/CD. I was told it wasn't to be available anywhere until the opening of the exhibition and when It was released a day or two early I was busy doing the actual installation in France. That was out of my control It must be remembered this is an art book concerning that show made in limited quantity by a non for profit gallery. All profits go into providing free entrance to the exhibition and in arranging tours there for children and for many people from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as the general public.

Myself and Ivan receive no cash at all from any book sales. Books are still available from the gallery directly for people interested. Sadly postage costs these days for vinyl/books etc. is high everywhere. Boomkat were given no gallery discount on the books they managed to get which is why their price was a higher as they had to first ship the books to the UK and pay exchange rate fees. They paid full price for each book and I say it again I receive no cash from their sales.

Thanks to those who do support the works and make it to the exhibition.

Not to mention he lied about when it'd be available from Boomkat, he claimed it would be released the 7th on both Boomkat and the FRAC website on his bandcamp when in reality it was released three days early on Boomkat and only released on the proper date on the FRAC website causing it to sell out on Boomkat before many of the people who purely followed his Bandcamp even thought it was out.
At the moment, I myself am an American who ordered from the FRAC website regardless of regional restrictions and am waiting to hear back from the FRAC gallery as to whether or not they can make an exception if I were to pay more for shipping. Fingers crossed they at least respond to me and refund me if it isn't possible. I will post an update when I hear back from them.

This item is a book of Ivan Seals art and a CD of Everywhere An Empty Bliss REMIXED. (The original release was free until June 2019 via bandcamp.)
If you want to buy this direct from the FRAC gallery currently it a pain, they will only ship currently within France for a total of €24 (around £21.)
However, Boomkat are selling this book with the CD too. But here's the thing... It cost me from Boomkat £41.49 (£32.99 + £8.50 delivery.)
Both Boomkat and James Kirby claim.this is not a rip off. I will let you decide on that.
