  While "The Masquerade Handbook"  is technically out of print, I will run of copies of my personal book... and will send it to you at cost.  Note, there will be a few hand written notes in it, since it is my master workbook.  However, it is still quite useful for anything from running a local masquerade to a Costume Con masquerade.
