We wanted to send a huge thank you out to everyone who was able to make it to The Pastie Project book launch party recently.  It is such a pleasure to share this book with you, and we are grateful for your support.  This party was for all those who contributed to the making of this book, and without whom, there would BE no book!  To our little book design and production team: Ben, Tiny and Liz- it couldn’t have happened without you.
