Machiavelli is a historically accurate graphic novel; hand drawn, hand painted and set in Renaissance Florence.
The signed and numbered paperback editions are sold out. Thanks for your understanding. However, you can buy the:
Digital Copy (pdf)
If you prefer, you can own a DRM-free PDF copy of the book to read on your device of choice. It’s a high-res file, so it looks good even on tablets. After purchase, you’ll receive an e-mail with a link to download your PDF.
You can also buy Machiavelli on ComiXology. It’s $9.99 as Amazon needs their cut, and it allows you to do the zooming, panel-by-panel reading if that’s how you prefer to read, as well as having everything within their app.

Will this book be available in stores or purchasable as a physical copy on Amazon.ca?
Hi Nicomachus, no plans for that at the moment. This is a limited print run of 300 signed and numbered books. I’m just getting the site set up to handle orders…I’m trying to figure out how to get PayPal to capture people’s shipping addresses. Maybe that could just be e-mailed. Anyway, at the moment, I am shipping out the last of the Kickstarter rewards and after that, I’ll begin selling the books in earnest. Would you like to be notified when that’s set up? Thanks, Don
That would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Nicomachus
Ordered the book! Can’t wait to read it! Where/when was it posted on kickstarter. I’d like to know when things like this need support and funds!
Leslie, thanks so much for your order! I’ll get it right out to you. The Kickstarter ran last May, and I spent the rest of 2014 scanning, preparing files, painting the covers, and printing. I got all the backers’ books out earlier this year (around Feb/March). Here’s a link to the Kickstarter page in case anyone’s interested in the historical record: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/325728729/machiavelli-a-graphic-novel
As for The Prince being a satire, I’m skeptical, as I wrote about here: http://donmacdonald.com/2010/10/the-prince-is-not-a-satire/
I’d like to purchase a paper copy of the book, but would it ever be sold in the bookshops in the UK?
I know that there’s int’l delivery with charge but was wondering if I could have that money by buying it in the UK (particulary, Oxford).
Hi Park, I’m sorry but since the book is a limited edition, it’s only available by mail right now.
Being more than two years since release, is this limited run even still available?
Hi Zenon, it is indeed. I have about 30 copies left of the original run.
Hi, how do I buy a digital copy?
Hi Lisa, you can buy a digital copy by clicking on the “buy now” link above (under the digital copy option) and you’ll get a link to download a PDF of the book. Thanks! -Don
Hi Don, thank you for a quick answer. The “Buy Now” link is not there – there is one under the paperback copy…
I found a solution. The “Pay Now” is missing in the Chrome-browser, but in Explorer there was an “X” and it worked. I’m looking forward to read your work.
Hi Lisa, I see you found it! Was it a particular browser it wasn’t appearing in? I’m guessing since I just got your receipt that things went OK, and the site looks ok in my browser (MacOS, Safari, Chrome) Thanks!!
Just ordered. How long will it take to arrive in the UK?
Mike, thanks so much for your order! It takes about a week for books to arrive in the UK (at least based on my experience) so I’ll try to get it in the mail tomorrow.
Is the book still available ?
If yes, is it possible to ship it to Kuwait using my dhl account ?
Hi Yaser, I’m afraid I’m all sold out of printed copies. Sorry! If you like, you can buy the ebook at the link on this page. Thanks! Don
