typewriter update: 65%

Transient

As of this morning, The Typewriter book project is at 65% funded. Thank you to the 149 people who have placed a preorder or purchased a level with perks! There's still a ways to go to reach 100% of the goal. The money raised in this campaign is going towards the cost of the book's print production: the print bill and the cost of freight. Above and beyond theses costs, there is also significant investment in pre-press (image scanning is a big undertaking! purchasing image rights, procuring artifacts, research and editing costs... ) Creating a book of this caliber is expensive, that's for sure! Every bit of your support helps and is much appreciated. I am committed to producing this book, no matter what level of funding is reached.

Place your preorder here for $45 (includes shipping in North America). If you want to receive one of the "perks" such as an art print, authentic memorabilia, typewriter tins or even an actual working typewriter from my collection, there are higher levels of support (but limited quantities of these perks!)

Please help us reach 100% of the goal by September 15. I can then concentrate on working on the book rather than diverting time to the fundraising campaign. Preorders will continue to be available, but once the goal is met, the perks won't be offered again.

"Type Strong, Type Happy" The UPPERCASE Typewriter Club mirror is included in pledges of $75 and higher. Its design is modelled after an old advertising mirror by Remington. Mirrors were popular incentive items since they appealed to the lady typewriter.
