Kickstarter is a website where artists post either project ideas or completed projects in order to  find funding.  Sometimes, the artist(s) asks for a partial amount necessary to fund the project, outside of other funding that they already have; or the artist(s) asks for full funding.

Readers may contribute any amount to the project; with a $20 donation comes an autographed, and paw-o-graphed, copy of the book.

From the photographers: "We're very excited about the new book. We also hope to inspire people to grow flowers and milkweed to help the butterflies."
