    Signed and numbered hardcover edition! This will be near-identical to the regular print edition in terms of content (the first and last pages will be different). I'm limiting the hardcover printing to 100 copies, at most, 95 of which will be offered through this campaign. (The remaining copies are for my personal use.) Also includes the saddle-stitched, basic edition of The Book of Unusual Potions as well as the PDF (delivered through Dropbox). This hardcover edition is for those of you -- like me -- who prefer hardcover books. The spine will be too narrow to include type. NOTE: If the project is successful and copies of the hardcover remain after fulfillment, I will offer the remaining hardcover copies in a later Kickstarter campaign.

    Retailers, here's your chance to carry The Book of Unusual Potions and the first two issues of Delayed Blast Gamemaster. This reward includes six copies of the saddle-stitched Unusual Potions book and three copies each of the B&W, saddle-stitched zine, Delayed Blast Gamemaster. That's a total of twelve books, each of which sell for $10 in this campaign. Shipping, as with all other print rewards in this project, is included. Any questions? Please message me today! Thank you for your support. NOTE: These books are not labeled for retail sale. There are no prices or bar codes printed on the books. You, the retailer, will have to sticker the books with prices. If you do, I recommend bagging the books so that price tag stickers do not damage them.
