We will be putting together copies of the 2008 Flying Destructicate: Make Your Own Truth.

Make Your Own Truth contains new work by Jonathan Brodsky, Juliacks, Paus Akid, Alberto Almarza, Josh Atlas, and Rick Gribenas. This book is also packaged with printed editions of Power Point Presentations given at our recent BYO.PPT events by M. Callen, T. Foley, Curt Gettman, Brett Kashmere, Laura Miller, Greg Siegle, Shaun Slifer, and Jim Storch.

The Flying Destructicate: Make Your Own Truth is comprised of 1 Book, 8 BYO.PPT mini-folders, and 1 DVD assembled within a pretty crafty slip case. Destructicates, we need your help!
