    Electronic version of the book!

    Electronic version of the book! If you are morally opposed to killing trees, despite the deep, dark, evil nature of those wooden monsters, then the electronic version of The Weird Accordion to Al book is perfect for you! It's less than half the price of the print version, and you don't have to worry about shipping.

    An autographed copy of the book

    Get an autographed, first edition copy of The Weird Accordion to Al directly from the co-author of Weird Al: The Book (with Al Yankovic) full of gorgeous illustrations from renowned illustrator and colorist Felipe Sobreiro and an introduction from "Weird Al" Yankovic himself. It's the ultimate tribute to the ultimate American musical comedy icon.

    If you yourself are not an Al fan (although, seriously, how is that possible?) this is still the perfect holiday gift for the comedy nerd in your life.

    And, to make things more appealing, pre-order at this level and I will thank you in the acknowledgements of the book itself AND follow you on Twitter. Just let me know what your handle is so I can give you a follow.

    Exclusive Shirt +autographed book

    It's taken nearly two years but we finally have our very first bit of Nathan Rabin's Happy Place march! For a mere fifty dollars, you can get the autographed book AND a navy blue Weird Accordion to Al tee-shirt based on Felipe's cover design. It's a beaut, a unique garment that conveys that you are an Olympic-level Al fan and, to a lesser extent, you like that weird column about him on that modestly read personal website.

    Close Personal Friend of Al Portrait

    Alas, Al cannot be personally photographed with everyone so we have whipped up the best possible substitution: for 65 dollars, Felipe will do a lovely digital, one-of-a-kind print of a portrait of yourself with Al, plus an autographed copy of the Weird Accordion to Al book.

    It's the ultimate online conversation starter! You'll be the envy of all your Al-loving pals for this unique bit of Al ephemera.

    This comes with an autographed copy of The Weird Accordion to Al book as well.

    I'm With Al AND Busey

    Because we are silly, silly human beings, and our audience/readership are very silly as well, we’re offering an upgrade where, for 85 dollars, you can get a digital, one of a kind portrait print of yourself with “Weird Al” Yankovic AND Gary Busey (which also comes with an autographed book) Why? I’m not entirely sure. The idea just amused me so I figured we would go for it. Just send us a photo of yourself and Felipe will make the magic happen.

    Best of Both Worlds!

    Get an autographed bundle of both books I've written about Al: 2012's WEIRD AL: THE BOOK, which is all kinds of fancy and I co-wrote with the man himself, and this year's THE WEIRD ACCORDION TO AL. I see these books as complementary siblings; one is all about pretty images, the other, pretty images and words, lots and lots of words.
