Why Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a great place to showcase your ideas to a wider audience who are willing to help support, and who are hungry for new and innovative projects. All Artists who have worked on this project with me, have been paid for their hard work and the book is almost complete, however I've decided to Utilize Kickstarter to gain funds for printing, exhibition, distribution costs, and future issues.
