ANNOUNCING… STRETCH GOALS
Now well past our funding goal, having reached 150% at the halfway point of the campaign, we've been talking a lot about how to make Rock and Roll Future even better, to give our supporters more bang for their buck. To add some bells and whistles, to improve the overall quality, to say thanks again to all our current backers while encouraging new ones… today we're announcing Stretch Goals. With just under two weeks to go, we're excited to have come up with some wonderful additions that will enhance the beauty of the finished product as support continues to roll in. We hope you'll help spread the word, as our book will get even cooler at each level.
STRETCH GOAL ONE [$50,000]: YOUR NAME IN THE BOOK - REACHED!
No need to keep reaching for this one, you've already stretched! We're so grateful to all our backers for making this project possible, and we're now able to give credit where credit is due by listing all of our supporters' names in the book. We'll be able to add pages for special Thank You section, giving each of you a shout-out by name.
STRETCH GOAL TWO [$60,000]: CUSTOM SLIPCASE
Our intention all along was to make Rock and Roll Future a beautiful art book — not just "hey, that's alright," but a true beauty. One that you'll proudly display. Adding a custom slipcase will not only protect your book but will enhance its presentation and make it a real work of art.
STRETCH GOAL THREE: [$64,000]: CUSTOM SLIPCASE WITH DIE-CUT WINDOW
For not much more, we can take the beauty of a slipcase one step further. At double our original funding goal, we'll be able to create a slipcase with a custom-designed back and front including a die-cut window, elevating the book one more notch as an object of art.
STRETCH GOAL FOUR [$70,000]: “FOR YOU” TRIPTYCH GATEFOLD
Earlier this year, Barry released a special limited-edition triptych of "For You," featuring three photos from the piano series. At this funding level, we'll be able to add a gatefold to Rock and Roll Future, incorporating a special fold-out reproduction of this triple-image series for everyone, bound inside the book.
STRETCH GOAL FIVE [$96,000]: AN ADDITIONAL, EXCLUSIVE 8X10 PRINT WITH EVERY BOOK
Every Kickstarter creator team dreams of hitting their goal and possibly even doubling it — it does happen! But what if, with our backers' support, we could triple it? Not impossible to do. So we've decided that if we reach this level, every book — for Kickstarter backers only — will come with a very special 8x10 print. Everyone whose pledge level includes a book will also receive an exclusive, never-offered-before print signed by the photographer, in addition to whatever other print(s) you may be selecting as part of your pledge rewards. For this final stretch goal we've selected a new take on one of Barry's piano shots — the same image that was featured in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum’s exhibit "From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen" — in a vertical composition that's never been offered before. We love the idea of sending this book out to our supporters with at least one print for everyone. Help spread the word if you can, and there's a chance we can make it good!
