My Parents Are Not My Real Parents
Things we used to believe in as children shared by many generous adults, drawn by Kamil Macejko and collected by Rachel Karafistan.
We all started out with our own confused but creative view of the world. For many of us, these views hardened into actual ‘beliefs’. This book is a collection of some of these childhood imaginings; conceived by children but remembered by adults. These idiosyncratic histories inspired by our own limited life experiences are more than just a shared belief in Father Christmas. As children, we are magicians, painters, writers, dancers, storytellers, singers, masters of play and accomplished all-around make-believers. We create parallel worlds and people; our imaginations are unfettered by logic.
As adults, we segregate and compartmentalize almost everything, including art and artists. We relegate some and elevate others. Ultimately, we delegate the job of creativity to those whom we believe do it better. In these times when new and unexpected things divide us, where life leaves little room for imagination, these beliefs can remind us of our common roots and of how creative we used to be. Shared by many generous adults, drawn by Kamil Macejko and collected by Rachel Karafistan. In English, German and Polish.
Our goal: 5000 pounds for the publication of “MY PARENTS ARE NOT MY REAL PARENTS”, an illustrated book by Rachel Karafistan and Kamil Macejko. 700 copies / Size 250 x 250 mm / 64 pages / full colour / 150 g offset hardcover. If we collect more than 5000 pounds, the book will have a flyleaf with an extra high quality cover.
If we collect more than 7000 pounds, we’ll publish 1000 copies. Moreover, for every physical copy backed on Kickstarter, we’ll print and send you a special postcard and sticker of the cover of the book.
