Update #3

A Worthy Cause and only 4 days to go

Comment

Dear Friends,

At this time last year, many of you responded with contributions to my Kickstarter campaign, raising money to support my book, WORLD OF BOOKS. I am so grateful for your help with this project!

If you haven't yet seen the book, there's a handsome PDF on my website, where it looks splendid.    http://www.sascolby.com/2art/WofBooks/index.html

My book is just one of 260 that have been created for the Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition, honoring
freedom of expression and the power of the written word. The San Francisco Center for the Book is mounting one of the first exhibitions of these artist-made books, called "Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here," to open on February 1, 2013. Other exhibitions are scheduled from Cairo to London, Cambridge, Mass. and Beirut, Lebanon, and at major centers in the US.

This project has miraculously gone forward with no visible means of support, with many hands helping out. There is currently a fund raising campaign running on Indiegogo. Please take a look at the link below, and if you can, make a contribution to the global effort to bring these artworks to the public.

With special greetings and thanks to all,

Sas

Dear Friends,

What an amazing month and experience Kickstarter has brought me. I'm very grateful for your support and for cheering me on. I've got books dancing in my head! Two teaching trips will take me away in October, but sending out the rewards is my first order of business when I return. I can't wait to bring WORLD OF BOOKS to life. Many many thanks. Isn't this a beautiful book shelf?
