*Once we hit 100% funded, I have planned upgrades to the book and free stuff for all physical backers (backers who pledge $20.00 or more). 

*Why no international Shipping? As of now I cannot find an economic way to ship a book of this size safely overseas or to Canada/Mexico (The shipping costs are over $60.00).  International backers please see the digital reward tier.

Risks and challenges

The artwork for this project is fully produced and ready to go to the printers. I'm using all the funds to pay for printing and shipping of the book. I have a printer in place and who is ready to go. The turn around time for this book should be very fast. That being said there can always be holds ups for whatever reason but my goal is to make a beautiful project I can turn around quickly for all backers.

This is my forth Kickstarter and I have delivered on all my rewards.
