Update #7

Currently Printing

Comment

Dear Backers, 

We are proud to announce we are currently in the process of printing all our books and preparing the delivery of the rewards.  

Over the last year we were able to launch our first Kickstarter campaign. Afterwards, we departed on the Silk Road, a journey to document voyagers on trains across Central and East Asia. Since then, we have spent months in our studio editing and designing the photographs, books and gallery prints. All of our hard work would not have been possible without your help.

As of today, the production process of our book is coming to an end. Unfortunately, in order to assure the highest quality hardcover bound books, we are forced to delay the delivery until the third week of June 2013. We apologize for the delay, but we are certain it will only improve the quality of the book, providing for you a more joyful experience when you receive it. 

We want to thank you for your patience and generosity. Your belief has sustained our dream of publishing independently.

With the publication, we hope that the increased exposure will help showcase these regions of the world to a wider audience. We hope that you are able to cherish the photographs as much as we enjoyed taking them. 

With sincere thanks,

RANDY LIN & DIMITRIY LEVDANSKI

Dear Backers!

We are happy to announce we have finalised the designing and editing process of our book. Over the last months we have been working hard every day to assure the best photography quality.

The end result is a beautiful photography book that will allow you to find yourself immersed in the Silk Road this Summer.

Find attached a sneak peak to a couple designs we have gone through over the last months.

Update #5

Work in Progress!

Comment

Hi Everyone!

Over the last months we have started the post production part of our project.

After weeks pre-selecting some of the photographs, we were able to start collaborating with a few designers to consider the possible design layouts and variations for our book.

Over the coming months, we will be interviewing with various publishing houses and editorials in NYC to study the possibilities of a collaboration that will make our project even more accessible to everyone on a global scale. 

For now, while we are still working on the preselection process, we are analyzing different design variations for the SilkRailRoad book and additional media channels.

Although none of the current designs are to be considered definitive, we believe it is only fair to share with all of you a sneak-peak preview of our work in progress.

Thank you for your support!

*Be reminded, the designs provided below are not officially definitive. These are "mock-up" designs.

*All graphic design, artwork and styling was created by Kenny Batu.
