Kickstarter! Help me make the next book (and become a part of it!)


Did you know I have a Kickstarter up, to help in making the new book? That's right you can help me make it happen!

I'm heading back to Japan in September, but I need help with the travel expenses and everything else involved in book-making. For every level of backing I've created awesome incentives that include (but are not limited to):

$25 A Kickstarter exclusive e-book + physical copy of Face Food Recipes
$100 Original bento items bought in Japan + signed copies of the first two books
$250 Framed travel photo prints
$850 A limited-edition, hand-bound copy of the new book
$1000 Your very own face, made as a bento, to be included in the new book

Please head here for the complete details (including photos and a video).
