I'm confused.  Why do you need anything at all from Looney Labs?  If
you get all the designers' permissions, you can just publish the book
yourself.  I don't even think the term "Icehouse" is trademarked.  If
you want to publish a book, just publish a book.  If you want to be
provocative you could even call it "The Unauthorized Guide to Icehouse
Games" or something.
