    The Decline of Mall Civilization Book

    By pre-ordering the book you'll get it ahead of the pack. The book is designed and ready to send to the printer. It is 112 pages with all new images (you may have seen some of them as they have gone viral- but there are no repeats from Malls Across America). Our schedule calls for the books to reach us by October and we hope to turn them around by November for early Christmas shopping. The last book sold out before it hit stores, so act fast to make sure you don't miss out

    Signed Book + 5 X 7 print

    Each copy of the book will get a personal drawing and a signed 5 by 7 print to go in it. We'll choose a number of different images to print- dealer's choice- as they say in our kid's class- you get what you get and you don't get upset. We will take suggestions but will not be able to guarantee the print. Check the project story to see the images available. The first people to back the project and request an image will get their choices. We are going to print 10 of each image in each size.
