For those of you who may have missed out on the Kickstarter for the coloring book ALL THE COLORS OF MAGIC, you can now order them (and some other cool goodies) via our BackerKit page, which we'll be using for fulfillment.

These are basically preorders, as we'll be shipping copies to the Kickstarter backers first, but it'll be the best way to make sure you can still get your hands on copies of your own!
Just go to the link to order your books: https://all-the-colors-of-magic-a-coloring-book-for-all-ag.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders/
