And then I managed to get Joan Lau to design the book. She's an amazing art director who did all the graphics for the movie (500) Days of Summer, the opening title for the ABC series A to Z and she even had a hand in the opening titles for Mad Men. She's also my wife, so that helps.
Anyway, I'm really excited about how this book looks and, if you are a fan of strange art, odd historical facts, cephalopods and/or Joe Biden, then I think you'll like this book too.
So here's the thing: I only printed 20 of these books.
Why did I only print 20 of these beautiful tomes? Well, to be honest, I originally only wanted to print 5. I am actively talking with publishers to get this book out to a wider audience and I wanted to print a few up as a proof of concept, a tangible version of my book proposal.
But as it turns out, it's about as cheap to print 5 books as it is 20.
So I decided to sell a portion of this very limited run. Each copy is signed and numbered.
So if you've been on the fence debating whether you should get a Gerald Ford print or a Schuyler Colfax one, you no longer have to choose.
