We wanted this book to be largely an independently funded project. With Kickstarter and other social media channels, we've been able to produce and ultimately distribute this book without the larger publishing machine. The Kickstarter ran for two months from March-April 2013. The funds we raised paid for the illustrations and design, packaging the book for electronic and traditional printing, backer rewards, ISBN and associated costs of getting the book online for sale.


we are extremely grateful to everyone that supported this project !
