Final Week!!

Posted by Jim Jourdane (Creator)

The Kickstarter campaign for the Fieldworkfail Book is coming to his final week!!

I couldn’t be more pleased with the evolution of the campaign. I received a lot of help and support, a lot of people are very motivated to make this project happen!

We just passed the fourth stretch goal this morning. Congrats!! It adds again 2 pages to the book :)

Ends of campaign are often intense, so I think there is still the possibility for two or three stretch goals next week! Who knows? 

Even without stretch goals, the better I can fund the book, the better it is for the book... For example printing more copies gives me the possibility to choose a better paper (good paper is very expensive for small runs), better packaging, improving possibilities of distribution, and so on.

Do you want to play a game? Give in the comments – before tomorrow same time – an estimate of the final number of backers, I’ll give to the closest guess a free giclee print!!

My personal try is 1250 backers - That may be a bit optimistic as we are still far, but a lot of things can happen in 7 days -

I’d be curious to read yours!!

      Ok, so I didn't think my first guess posted so I changed it an posted again. Then I saw that it did! Yikes! Ignore the 1026 guess so that I'm not accidentally cheating!
