Pfffffft: a book of illustrated fart literature

CA$ 6,985

Pfffffft—a book of illustrated fart literature.

From two guys who have created many farts, comes Pffffft, a book about farts. But this isn’t your typical fart literature that positions passing gas as a cute, natural body function. Instead, this book embraces the disgusting nature of flatulence, teaching readers that when gas exits your posterior and enters someone’s nasal passage, it’s the furthest thing from cute.

Page after page, weird and quirky illustrations take readers through a fart-filled journey of entertainingly funny, yet disgustingly relatable situations. From holding in a massive fart during an important boardroom meeting, to being trapped in an elevator filled with a stranger’s fecal mist, Pfffffft provides an array of fart-tootingly funny scenarios that may not be suitable for children, but are definitely suitable for children with bad parents.

Here are a few pages

Meet the creators

Pierre Chan (Author) is a writer of grocery lists, rent checks and craigslist posts. When not busy with those, he writes advertisements full time for some of the biggest brands in North America. His work has been featured on The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Mashable, Upworthy, Jezebel and more.

George Lin (Illustrator) is a published, part-time illustrator and full-time art director. By day, he sits in conference call meetings, doodling nonsensical things on the backs of business documents. By night, he doesn’t sit in conference call meetings.

Our notable past projects

Although Pierre is an advertising creative, his experience extends beyond the traditional ad industry. In 2012, he conceptualized and helped create NoHomophobes.com, a website to show how frequently and casually homophobic language is used online by tracking homophobic tweets in real time. The project was donated to The University of Alberta's Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services to help further their research and support the LBGTQ community. It gained international attention from Mashable, BuzzFeedHuffington Post, Economist and more.

In 2013, Pierre was also part of a team that helped conceptualize, design and manufacture a game board as an educational tool to help promote street safety for elementary school children. The game tested so well with students, that it was incorporated into the curriculum of grades 4-6 in schools across Alberta.

As part of a personal art project, George Lin has designed a line of limited edition custom illustrated sneakers.

What's in it for you?

Besides the fact that you'll be making this fart dream possible, you will have the opportunity to get a first edition hardcover book before anyone else. There's also the added opportunity to get a personalized caricature of yourself farting from our Pfffffft illustrator. And for you fart connoisseurs, consider rewarding yourself with the author and illustrator's farts in a jar. Place it on your mantle and I guarantee it'll be the most interesting conversation starter in your home.

How your pre-purchase helps us

The proceeds of your purchase will go towards printing the books, Kickstarter fees, and costs associated with getting listed in online bookstores.

Shipping is included for all rewards

We will email you the e-book immediately after Kickstarter funds are received, which is projected to be in May. All other rewards will be mailed out free of charge, once we have the books printed and ready to be shipped. 

_____________________________________________________

Risks and challenges

Since all the illustrations are finished and the book is already designed, once we reach our fund goal we'll be ready to send files to the printer immediately.

Because we're both in the field of advertising design, we have a lot of connections with professional printing companies. We've already chatted with numerous printers and received an estimate that we feel comfortable with. It will take approximately 7 weeks for the books to be printed. Once we receive the order, we will mail out all hard copies to our backers immediately. Backers who purchased digital copies will receive the file within a week of us receiving our funds from Kickstarter.
