Dear #OLTW Backers,
It is with surpassing joy that I share with you the launch of my book, The Oldest Living Things in the World with forewords by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Carl Zimmer! Just 10 short years after my visit to Jomon Sugi, the ancient cedar in Japan, and 4 years after my Kickstarter campaign, the book officially launches Earth Day, April 22nd, 2014.
It is also my great pleasure to share that I have selected as a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow, as well as a recipient of the LACMA Art + Technology Lab grant, where I will pursue a new project investigating perception of deep time and deep space in conjunction with NASA JPL and SpaceX.
If you are in NYC, please join me for the book launch event at the SVA Theater, tomorrow, Monday April 14th, where I'll be in conversation with Maria Popova, aka Brainpicker, with a signing to follow! Events in Baltimore, Los Angeles, and San Francisco are also happening in the coming months. Check the calendar for more information.
The book is already shipping from Amazon, or find and support a local bookseller that carries it on Indybound. If you're the collecting type, a limited, custom collectors box with a signed print and book, all numbered, is available in an edition of 150. Use code "KICKSTART14" for $100 off, valid through May 31st.
Thank you again for all your support! Every single one of you helped make this project possible!
