I've recently embarked upon a new book project via the website http://www.kickstarter.com
My project for kickstarter consists of publishing five copies of my artist's book "Scavenger Hunt" for the "Hamburger Fotobuchtage Festival" that will be held in Germany this June. My books will be presented by "Kehrer Art Books of Heidelberg". I've self published books in the past but never as one of a kind art objects. My goal is to create a full edition of 50 books and I have found a great local bindery called "Love Leaf Press" who are going to help me out. Each book is going to cost me roughly $250 to make but they are going to look really really good!
You can view my page at kickstarter.com by visiting:
Essentially, I am looking for backers to help me finance this project.
Individuals who donate $25 towards the project will receive a signed 8" x 10" page from the book (page of your choice), individuals who donate $50 will receive a signed two page spread from the book (spread of your choice) and if you are feeling insanely generous, individuals who donate $450 will receive a signed one of a kind copy of the book (again, finished edition of 50). The way that kickstarter works is that in order for me to receive the money and for you to receive your print, I need to meet my minimum goal of $1200 (however there is not a maximum cap) by June 17th. If you know anyone who might be interested in participating, please pass this along.
