I've shot all 850+ dots on the map of North Dakota, and now I want to photograph some of the tiniest places in the big open west.

122 backers pledged $8,604 to help bring this project to life.

Postcards sent. Books, prints, maps, buttons coming soon.

Postcards. Postcards are on their way to everyone whose rewards included a postcard. I mailed them from Tokeland, Washington, a tiny spot on the north side of Willapa Bay on the edge of the Pacific. (I'd been planning to mail them from eastern Oregon, but the weather hasn't been too cooperative lately.)

Books. The Small Places books have been printed, and I will start shipping them out shortly.

Map. The Small Places map is ready to go and should be printed this week. If your reward includes the map and you would like a particular state rather than the map seen above, let me know.

Prints and buttons. Photos will be printed and buttons will be made this week. This puts me ahead of schedule, and means that I can probably have things delivered before Christmas. If you need your reward delivered before Christmas, let me know and I will do my best to ensure that it is.

Special requests. I plan on selecting an assortment of some of my best photos for printing. If you want a particular photo (or a just photo from a particular state) as your print or button, please let me know as soon as possible.

Local pickup. If you're in Seattle and would like to pick up your reward locally, there will be a small launch party. Date and details will follow in another update.

Thanks again, everyone!

      I'm pleased that your project got funded! As a photographer, and North Dakotan (from Fessenden, near Harvey coincidentally), I was happy to make my inaugural Kickstarter donation to Small Places.

      I'd love it if you could send a photo of a North Dakota town, though not necessarily one from my "neighborhood."

      Fantastic work; this is the kind of project I believe was tailor-made for Kickstarter. We were "print" contributors. If possible, could you send us a print from North Dakota? We spent 12 years in Bismarck, ND and my spouse traveled to Ashley, Harvey, Dickinson and Bowman, ND to see patients. Harvey was her favorite.

      Thanks again,
      Andrew S. Niemyer
