I'm making this book with the help of Make That Thing, a new subsidiary of TopatoCo – the place where you go to buy Dresden Codak merch, and which has been making and selling webcomics merchandise for the internet's finest talents since 2003. Make That Thing was conceived as a production and fulfillment agency for crowdfunded projects specifically, which means they help people like me (who live in apartments) print books (which come on pallets) and ship them to you guys (since I am no longer allowed within 100 yards of a mailbox). So you can be confident that if this project is funded, all the rewards will be sourced and produced quickly, be of the highest quality, and ship on time!
