      Nice job Brandon, this reward exceeded my expectations. My friends are impressed with it as well.

      Thanks for a job well done.

      Love the book! My only complaint.....the "Manly Marks" logo on the front of my smudged during shipping so the white is kind of smeared.

      Other than that very pleased with the book. Thanks Brandon!

      I just got mine. I mounted the coasters in an OpenFrame (another Kickstarter). Photo is here:

      These are awesome! Thanks.

      Got mine today, it's awesome. Cover is a different color than I expected, but it's great! Thanks!

      David - I'm still on track for the various delivery times. Your reward level was actually estimated for July, and that delivery time is still looking good.

    7. Creator David Cahoon on May 29, 2013

      Is everything still on track for June?

      Jerad - Things are moving along smoothly - currently stitching the pages together. I've got an update in the works to send out in the next few days. Be on the lookout for that.

      I'm hoping one of the manly marks has something to do with bacon. I mean, how could it not?? Lol.

      I grew up in Manly, Iowa, and as the unofficial spokesMan, I say "We approve!"

      Damian - Thanks for the offer, I'll be sure to keep it in mind!

    14. Creator Damian R. Broccoli on March 14, 2013

      Oh, also, I'm in the Dallas area. I have no previous experience with some of this stuff, but if there's something I can do to help the project out as well, I'd be happen to lend some spare time.

    15. Creator Michele Pugh on March 14, 2013

      I would also be very interested in a copy with unsewn signatures!

      Thanks all! I really appreciate your support in this project. - send me a message and we can discuss further.

    18. Creator Brian Smith on February 28, 2013

      Is it possible to get the book pages in unsewn signatures, so it would be possible to hand bind our own copy?

    19. Creator Damian R. Broccoli on February 26, 2013

      I'm all in. I've already passed it around to my manly, bearded friends.

    20. Creator Jeremy Wheat on February 23, 2013

      This is greatness

    21. Creator Stephen & Carrie Fitzwater on February 17, 2013

      Bravo Brandon! If the book is half as manly as the video, I'll be a proud owner! Congrats! and look forward to you reaching your goal.
