Cargo Cult Themed by the Burning Man .ORG
I cover the event photographically. I am at work the entire time. My focus is the art, the artist, the characters that build the city, the burners, the humor the love, family, and the impossible things to dream. When I saw the man sculpture I was excited to make my own theme for each book I do has a question that is addressed by all the subjects.
This years question:
What one concept would you bring to better humanity to a new world?
I imagined all of us loading into the man and leaving Earth forever more! I love the show Twillight Zone. The surreal situations and black and white footage inspired this idea of leaving and wondering what I would bring if I had to leave instantly. What would be a "GIFT" to a new society?
Filming is done and I am in edit mode daily. I am posting on Face book and now I will post here more seriously as I want to see this book of many I've made get mass produced so that all of you can buy one for a fair market price rather than print on demand as I have done prior. Those books are on line now and are too expensive for most folks. If I can get a 1000 people to pre pay/fund the making we all get a big break in price. FYI - none of my books filmed at Burning Man are marked up. Those prices are my cost as well so here is the best way to give the public a break. Pre-buy and we all get it for a lot less. My books are big and full of amazing tid bits from all the subjects. You can imagine the quotes will vary and you can open it anywhere and pretty much get some sort of literary pondering and a smile.
Currently in edit mode, my tech does the retouching and placements. Vicki Teague-Cooper will be working on the design with me and I will have an editor for all the copy as well.
I have 60 days to make my goal so here goes, please share with others and help sales so we make goal and can make this book a reality.
I am aiming for April to send to press in China. Give them time to press and I think it takes about 3 weeks on a boat to return to California. My good friend George Post has proven this with his printer and I am now aligned with that person to make this a reality. I will sign every book shipped out to you all.
Very Excited and Please Help this MAKE GOAL.
I need to pay all these people , shipping and handling and the books and keep my utilities on as well.
Were in it to WIN IT.

Risks and challenges
My goal is to get you your books and prints asap.
I will send book rate unless you say your in a big hurry!
Prints will be in tubes unless framed.
Larger prints will be tubed and boxed insured.
I pull prints from my printer in NYC so I have a few weeks to turn around once you chose your images.
I always deliver and my personal goal is to make it so before the next Burning Man event.
Any questions or issues let me know.
KS says you can pre-buy a limit of ten books so if you want to donate more and get the limit instead of prints that is fine too.
