9"x9" hardcover art book of 50 selected pen & ink drawings by self-taught, outsider artist Eli Helman.
27 backers pledged $1,186 to help bring this project to life.




I am self-publishing a limited edition of 500 hardcover books of my Collected Works: 50 Maximalist Ink Drawings.  The title of the book is subject to change, but the drawings to be included have been chosen.  They will be divided into 5 categories:  Trees and Birds, Animals, Humanities, Music, and Shelves.

Risks and challenges

I am currently speaking with several printing companies to find the best fit for this project. The major challenges involve costs of printing and shipping as well as a timely delivery of the final product. Some aesthetics are still to be determined as well, including the title of the book and the front and back cover designs.
