This book project, my first picture book, is a collection of the ecocity drawings I've made over the past thirty years.

The ideal of the ecocity – the ecologically healthy city, the city that can exist harmoniously with ecological and bioregional systems, the city that actually furthers healthy evolution – that’s my goal.

I have a someone interested in publishing the book, but I need to finish it up before it’s ready to hand over. It’s nearly complete, but I need to add some drawings and work on the captions and text. I also want to weigh in with the book design process itself and ensure that there is a good plan for promoting the book once it’s published.

Your support will give me the few months I need to wrap up this book, as well as help ensure that we have a solid plan on getting the word out about it once it’s printed.

Thank you for considering joining the project! If for some good fortune we are able to raise more than $3,500, we will use the remaining money to further support the book project outreach efforts.

Sincerely, Richard Register
