Josh Glenn and Rob Walker are the editors of PROJECT:OBJECT. They are very grateful to all of the TALISMANIC OBJECTS series’ contributors; and to Jacob Covey, for designing the occult-ish volume logo!

PROJECT:OBJECT’s goal — thanks in part to the generosity of its contributors — is to donate $500 per P:O volume to the American Civil Liberties Union. Help support the ACLU by purchasing limited-time-only t-shirts, hoodies, totes, notebooks, and other P:O gear.
