About this project

$2,246

39

I am trying to raise money to fund a second edition of this book that I created. It consists of over 30 line drawings depicting my Detroit, starting at my near-East side home ("Poletown"), meandering through Detroit's downtown and ending up in nearby Southwest ("Mexicantown"). The first edition (of 100 books) I printed and handbound, but sold out in just a few months and there was still more interest! So now I'd like to pay a professional to print and bind the books in larger quantities than I would ever have time for. Please, your help is appreciated!
