Perfect, Unrevised is now finished!
While the Kickstarter failed, I never stopped working on Perfect, Unrevised. I spent a few extra months fine tweaking it, and had editor Josh Roby take another development pass through the text.
The end result is really awesome. And it's available now! The PDF is $10, and the book is on preorder for $22 (comes with PDF).
The book is 158 pages long, 5.5"x8.5" (half-letter), black & white.
The finished text is about 30,000 words long.
The book includes most of the art from the first edition, plus 4 new pieces (from Kaleigh Barton and Andrew Gillis).
