What's the one word that best describes you? Well now, when someone looks up that word, you will be right there looking back!
Phototionary is a new type of visually-based dictionary inspired by the webcomic Dinosaur Comics. Each entry in the phototionary will have a photograph associated with it. And with your contribution, it can be your face with the word of your choice!
Now for some details:
Backers who donate at least $5 will be able to submit an image and choose a phototionary word entry to associate with it. Remember, word entries will be chosen by backers in the order that they contribute, so make sure to contribute early! However, like a standard dictionary, the phototionary will be compiled in alphabetical order.This is an American English dictionary so backers must make sure their words are English (some slang may be allowed). Remember the Kickstarter terms for projects and entries will be reviewed for inappropriate content. Keep images and words clean!
If the number of entries chosen by backers is less than 3,000, I will make a random selection of entries and associated images until the total number of entries is 3,000.The print version will be hard bound and printed on 8.5"x11" sheets with 15 entries per side which will have dimensions of 2.33"x2". The digital version will be a pdf version of the print version.
There will be a minimum of 3,000 entries (100 print pages) and a maximum of 30,000 entries (1000 print pages). Once the project is successfully funded, backers will have two weeks to submit an image, in jpeg format of less than 1 MB in size but the dimensions must be at least 500 pixels on a side. More details on selecting words will follow, but we will be contacting backers on a first come first served basis.
The money will go to organizing and compiling the book as well as printing costs if the volumes are large enough. We will try to deliver digital copies approximately 45-60 days after the Kickstarter has concluded. Please allow for an additional two weeks for making and distributing print copies and shirts.Make sure to come back to the Kickstarter page over the next couple months, as I will be updating the page once I start compiling the phototionary.
