Another friend of mine is really digging it.

He says, "It's a breath of fresh air. Each chapter is perfect—it has a rhythmic flow that gives it an element of music. Great read."

He also suggested you sell some to Powell's Books.

Interesting thought.  Looks like we have to use their on demand service, though.  Dunno if I wanna go thought the hassle.

In that case, I'm thinking of redesigning the Chao te Ching at about half it's current size, a limited edition of 23, hand bound, each cover with an actual block print of a pair of orange foo dogs (one on the front, one on the back) but with permanently adhered, movable googly eyes over their own.

Same content, properly attributed, released under the same CC license, of course. I'd mail you one, Cram one, keep one, sell 18 for a dollar each at places like Powell's and Last Thursday. I was thinking the remaining one could be a prize I'd mail out for some future pd.com based contest?

That would be pretty cool!  Proceed without caution!
