About this project
Thank you for checking out our book! We've put many years of love and care into this project and we know you'll dig it as much as we do! We are proud to introduce you to...
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Hip-Hop Pop-Up Book is a piece of art that celebrates the original four elements of hip-hop: Breakdancing, Graffiti, DJ-ing, and Emceeing. We've created a fully interactive Pop-Up experience filled with stylish and love-able characters, set in the gritty backdrop of late 1970's New York City. The book has a completely original fictional story penned by Hip Hop Pioneer Grandmaster Caz - that sheds light on the positive energy that the Hip-Hop movement provided during this era, when the oppressive living conditions gave way to creativity, self-expression, opportunity and most importantly, community.
The book introduces you to the young B-Boy Bizzy Biz 136, his older brother and budding DJ, Kev, his school-mate (and secret crush) Foxxy along with many more of his neighbors, friends and foes as they all take part in each of the four elements of Hip-Hop! With a smooth and easy to read rap, BiZ takes you through a Hip-Hop filled day in his Boogie-Down Bronx neighborhood.
Below are some writing samples and call-outs taken from the book.
WHAT'S OUR PLAN? :
After the project is funded, we will go directly into the first official production run of 2500 copies. We will be working with an exceptional book printing, production and packaging company, responsible for many of your favorite pop-up and art books. After receiving all the books and shipping out your orders, we will sell the remaining books at www.hiphoppopupbook.com, and other online retailers, along with participating brick and mortar book stores. We also plan on setting up booths at select trade shows and art and music events.
A portion of every book will be donated to: Operation Backpack
WHAT WE'RE OFFERING :
Risks and challenges
The assembly of any pop-up book is very complex and each book
requires specialized construction that needs to done by hand. That's where production costs get steep! In order for the books to be mass produced at the quality we want, they need to be printed and constructed at a top notch facility over seas. And we are required to produce a minimum run of least 2500 copies.
Once funded, $35,000 of your donations will be used each to produce the books at roughly $12 a copy. The rest will be used to help much needed additional marketing along with storage and shipping the books and other rewards out to you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
