I wanted to update you on the follow-up project of the Sigmund Freud Typeface which is running now on Kickstarter. Yesterday "Pen Pals, Einstein & Freud Handwriting Font" was ♥ Project of the Day on Kickstarter!
Now the project is 70% funded with 264 Backers!
In a nutshell: The project is about reenacting the letter exchange between Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud that happened exactly 85 years ago in 1932. I think their thoughts are well worth to be read today - so I decided to send the letters from their original location (Vienna and near Berlin) and time of the Year (30. July and September) they were send in 1932 to backers of the project.
A couple of backers reached out to me and said that they would love to support the new project at a higher reward tier then the letters at 10€, but complained that I am not really offering anything interesting for backers who supported past campaigns like the Sigmund Freud Typeface and therefor already own the fonts.
Wait a minute!
Posters & Postcards!
I still have a couple of Sigmund Freud Typeface Posters I designed in 2013 and a Poster with 100 Einstein Quotes. They were originally send out only to backers at $100. Now I added them as rewards to the campaign and will send them out for 33€ together with the Einstein and Freud letters and free shipping. Sounds like a good deal?
Here is what the 2-sided Sigmund Freud Typeface poster looks like:
Both sides have the first chapter of Freud's "Interpretation of dreams" published in 1899. The side with the famous portrait shows the text in English on top, the other side is showing the text of the German version set in the Sigmund Freud "Kurrent" to be accurate.
It looks very beautiful when you hold the print against the light like I did in these images. Then both texts overlap. Of course: the artwork is printed on very heavy paper and when mounted in a frame or on a wall the backside does not shine through:
Here is what the complete poster 50 x 70 cm looks like:
There is a counterpart of the Freud poster that I made for the Albert Einstein campaign in 2015. It shows 50 quotes in English on one side and 50 quotes in German on the other side. Of course, all quotes are with reference.
The Einstein poster is also available as a reward for 33€, or if you want both prints you can bundle them and choose the Pen Pals Plus reward which also includes postcards, the letters and much more for 59€. If you already have the font you can also receive Font Gift Cards instead of the personal license. Would that be interesting to you?
If you like to have more copies of the Freud Poster you can pick the Super Pen Pals reward which is available as an Early Bird special at 85€, this includes 3 copies of the Sigmund Freud Typeface Poster and much more:
Here you can back the campaign, be fast before the rewards are gone:
I would love to see you on board with this project.
Have a beautiful ☀Sunday,
