The book is printed and ready to go...

Hello Everyone,

We picked up the books from the printer yesterday and inserted the final piece. It's now ready for the release event tonight, and after that, to be shipped to those of you who supported us, and for the artists to distribute far and wide.

We wanted to acknowledge one more time your generosity in contributing to our project. Everyone is excited and honored that you helped make the project possible. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

May you enjoy reading the book, once we get it out to you.

And may you continue to enjoy supporting artists and our art. Creativity makes the world a better place.

Sincerely,

Jan and the Issue Erasure team

Book Release Event

Hello Again Funders,

The book pages and cover were printed today and the book is now in the early stages of its folding, cutting and binding. We should have it on next Monday.

To celebrate, we're hosting a book release event in one week, Tuesday, May 1, 6-8pm in Regis Art Center (East Lobby) on campus. The art building is on the corner of Riverside and 21st Ave S on the West Bank; Riverside is a bit torn up now due to roadwork, but the parking garages are open.

Here is a map of the building location: http://www1.umn.edu/twincities/maps/RegCtrE/

We just sent out emails to everyone who is receiving a book or artwork, asking you to let us know if you can pick your incentives up that night. We'll mail it to you if you cannot attend, but come if you live nearby. We'd love to see you in person.

Sincerely,

Jan Estep and the Issue Erasure team.

Issue Erasure at the Printers

Hello Everyone,

Thank you so much for making our project real. The digital files are at the printers now as I type this, getting ready for printing early next week. We can't wait to see the hard copies come off the press. And then share them with everyone.

If you backed the project, we'll be contacting you soon via email to get the info we need to deliver your incentives to you. For those receiving artwork, the artists are creating their pieces this week. We also are printing our thank-you postcard this week too. The books will be ready early May.

Thank you again for your generosity and faith in us,

Jan Estep and the Issue Erasure team.
