Release date for the book 17th September!

Posted by Steven Burton (Creator)


Hi everyone sorry about this well overdue update.

So the release date for the book is now to 17th September. I will be sending out the prints at the end of this month. The "how to" video is coming very soon I promise, one more week. Just received the lenticular test for the front of the book, looks great, see the attachment.

The media attention for the project has been incredible. Huffington post released an article last week and MSN are running the story this month. BBC in the future and a few other things coming up including Univision even Rosie tweeted the story;]

There has been many heart felt e-mails that I will be sharing. This week I photographed three more homeboys one homegirl. I look forward to continuing the project and bringing you more incredible stories. Thank you for your support. Sincerely Steven
