Cartoon Climate: New Draft of the Whole Book!

Posted by Yoram Bauman (Creator)

Hello Kickstarter supporters: Grady and I have now finished a complete draft of the whole book! You can get a peak at the entire Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change via this 15-meg 2-to-a-page PDF.

Feedback is welcome via the wiki, or via email or hard copy or however else you might want to do it. Printer warning: If you’re going to print these pages, note that some of them have a lot of black coloring, so you might use up a lot of toner. Also note that some of the comments are in light-colored text that might be hard to read on a print-out. (If you want a 1-to-a-page version, please send me an email... but note that it's a 30-meg file.) Finally, regarding feedback: Chapters 1-7 are all-but-final in terms of layout, structure, and content. (Of course if there are mistakes or disasters we will work to correct them, and we will continue to wordsmith until the bitter end, but the time for what-if brainstorming has basically passed for these chapters.) Chapters 8-11 are somewhat more fluid, especially in terms of content details. Chapters 12-16 are in first-draft form, so now's the time to holler if you want to suggest substantive changes!

What's next: Our original May 2014 publication date has slipped by one month, but we are on schedule to publish in June 2014! It's possible that this is the final draft we'll post and invite feedback on... or it's possible that we'll have one more iteration. Either way, it's quite likely that we'll post a sample chapter (with finished art!) prior to publication date, and of course we'll be in touch with all of you to get your information so we can send you your copies!

Stay tuned, and many thanks,

Yoram and Grady
