    BOOKS for International Supporters!

    We can't offer the books directly here to international supporters because the shipping costs vary greatly and are very expensive (the set weighs 10 pounds!). But if you pledge at this level, you'll get a special code to get the books free on the Siglio website (if we're fully funded). You'll pay only the shipping fees—but note that they could cost $75-125 depending on where you live.

    A Week's Drawings

    This is a heroic level of support! And you get a spectacular set of drawings as a thank you.

    You will receive at least seven drawings (on some days Trump was issued more than 15 cards, so there may be more than one board for a single day). We'll contact you, in the order you pledged, to ask which week (Sunday-Saturday dates only) you'd like to have. Please keep in mind you may not get your first choice.

    This level also comes with the set of "It Is What It Is" books (which will ship separately in May). Domestic shipping is included!

    A Month's Drawings

    You are our campaign superhero! And your reward is something spectacular.

    This set of one month's drawings (at least 30, but likely more) not only documents Trump's presidency but also creates a way to assess it visually, statistically, and almost emotionally. The accumulated abstraction—particularly if they are hung on the wall in a grid—yields multiple readings as the cards become language, music, time. Your set of drawings (at least 30) will be housed in a beautiful box built for them.

    You will be contacted first to choose your month. You will also get the "It Is What It Is" signed and lettered slip-cased edition with cards (that ships separately in May), and domestic shipping is included!
