I have thoroughly enjoyed getting a realistic view of the myriad steps involved in the creation of your illustrated book. So many details you have to consider, so many decisions! You could probably illustrate another book all about the book illustration process and call it Book Illustration Fail and Succeed! Seeing your monthly progress helps build the anticipation even more! I think I'm going to miss learning about your process once the book is published and in my hands. Thanks for teaching us along the way and helping us appreciate all the effort you have put into your masterpiece!
@Danielle Yes, there is a French version ! And yes, it will be possible to add extracopies (on any language) when I'll send the survey
Hi, is there a French version of the book? If so, is it possible to add funding and change the order to get one English and one French copy?
Thanks Tobias! I think I'll do the same kind of update next time. There is always something to share about the process!
Thanks for the nice update, realy good update and interesting reading about your process and how you do it!
@Andrew Yes! A new update is already written, I just need to add a few drawings in it before I can post it :) Coming this week, maybe tomorrow.
Any new updates coming, Jim?
@Tobias Yes there is a good chance the gift card will be in the next news :)
Hi, is there a chance you could maje a nice giftcard and provide it in pdf, so I could give that in christmas gift in waiting for the real book?
@Archaeokelly Hi! No problem! I'm going to do something about this :) Thank you!
@Jim I would love to find out about a card--I was planning to gift the book to a scientist friend of mine for his bday at the end of January. I totally understand that delays happen, but if I could give him something to show him what he'll be getting later in the spring... Thanks! Super excited about the book!
@Elizabeth Many Thanks !!!!
@jim - Just wanted to let you know how excited I am about your book! I'm so glad I backed this project and can't wait to read and enjoy your work :]]
@Daniel I'm currently writing the next news :)
It's been more than two months since the last update. Any news?
@Andrew Hi Andrew! I don't think so. I wish I could, a lot of people seem to be interested to offer the book but it will be complicated. Maybe offer it for a birthday?
Hi Jim, I hope your project is going well. Do you think there is any chance on delivery a month earlier in Dec? I am sure many of us would love to give this a gift.
Congratulations, this is fantastic. I cannot wait to place the book in my classroom to share with my high school students.
@Hilary Thanks for being a part of it's success =)
@Natha Yes, that's really great!
@Saz I won't work "too hard", I'll put my energy where it's needed. Like all this campaign!
Congrats on a great campain. Now just don't work too hard.
Congratulations, Jim!!! €32,699! This is awesome!!
Congratulations, Jim! I am consumed with anticipation of receiving our book, etc. This is an incredible project and I am completely thrilled that I am a backer of such an endeavour. Horray!!!
Thanks Margaret, Yael and Solveig! Solveig you were close, congrats too!!!
Congratulations on getting a very exciting project funded! I don't do field-work, but I am an experimental scientist; weirdly stories of experiments spectacularly not going to plan are part of what keeps me inspired to stay in the business.
Also congratulations to Brian H on closest estimate for final number of backers!
Wow, congrats on such a successful Kickstarter! I'm not surprised at all though, given how great the project idea is and how great your illustrations are =D Super looking forward to seeing the finished book! yay!
Great job on your book! Congrats. You should be very proud. Excited about the book!
Thanks Tobias and James!!! Congrats Brian H, you were the closest guess !!!
Congrats, looking forward to reading the stories :)
Congratz! Btw is it possible to get it signed and dedicated? (To my chemist-wife) ;-)
My guess is on the nose right now!
Brilliant project and lovely illustrations. I'm much looking forward to being part of your backer community throughout the process of the campaign! -J
For now the closer guesser is Therese Roth is 1188. Then we have Brian H with 1191. Then Solveig Felton - way beyond with 1234. Suspense!
@Solveig Yes, and there wasn't a lot of estimates around 1200 to 1240! I hope you'll win :)
It is beginning to look like my 1234 estimate isn't actually that outlandish! I am very pleased so many people have found and liked this project.
@Elli Thanks =)
@Ashish @Chris So far it's going great, now we can even consider reaching the 1200s!
Sweet! I actually backed the project to give the book to a friend who has loads of fieldwork experience, but now I am considering keeping it myself...or taking 2 so I can do both! :) Congrats @Jim Jourdane with the successful campaign!
Goal! Score! :)
@Jim i think you might surpass the 1080 by 100 :D :D
@Saz @Natha Thanks!! We dit it :)
1090 ! C'était mon pronostic personnel, mais apparemment ce n'était pas assez, il va être dépassé ! Bravo Jim, j'ai hâte de recevoir cette version française :-)
Smashed that 1080 mark. Congrats.
@Tobias Haha, it seems optimism pays!!! :D
Stop! Its enough, I guessed 1034 and it is 1037 now... :-O
But you will all be forgiven if we reach 1080 :-D
@solveig... Well, you have still a chance to reach it!! Unlike 13 unfortunates who were too pessimistic ;) But yes, the big 1080 stretch goal seems to be well on tracks!
@Kate : that's great! thanks :)
Woo-hoo! 1004 backers. We just need 76 more backers in 46 hours to get to the consolidated final stretch-goal. Of course, that is so ewhat short of my guess of 1234, but I will be happy reaching getting those extra pages.
I homeschool my kids and I can't wait to read this to them. :)
@Björn Thanks!! I hope too :)
Really nice streachgoal for 1080 really hope you reach it, I want those stories :D
