Update #4 - For backers only

We made it!

Comment

Thanks and thanks again to everyone who's backed us this far. We still have another 24 hours to go, but we've made our goal of $3,500!

That being said, any amount that we go over our original goal will be put into more copies of the book and even better rewards for you all. 

I was preparing a round-up message for the end of the campaign, but couldn't wait to share the news. Keep an eye out for a note tomorrow where we'll let you know what's next for the The Illustrated Press and how you can send us info so we can get your rewards out ASAP.

Thanks again! We've got big plans for the next few months and it's really reassuring to have so much support.

Darryl and Erik
