Bella Nuda Photobooks Redux: fine art nudes, pin-ups, nature

$4,579

28

I am creating high-quality photobooks in a range of art nude themes. My art celebrates the beauty of the female form. I'm fascinated by the countless ways in which the body can be unapologetically sensual, yet balanced with an aesthetic. 

Choose from multiple photobooks

  • 100+ brilliantly printed nude images in each book, organized by visual theme
  • Introductory essay written by the artist
  • Printed in USA on premium 100 lbs, semi-gloss paper
  • Autographed
  • "About the artist" section 
100 brilliantly printed art nude images in each photobook
Every hardcover photobook will be autographed

Not just a collection of beautiful body parts, the subjects are confident and unashamed. Every image has been photographed by me and painstakingly prepared.

Funds raised go towards additional shoots, compensating models, travel/logistics/supplies, and of course, printing and delivering the rewards to backers.

Improved Features

  • 100 lb. paper (40% heavier than 70 lb.)
  • Semi-gloss paper (instead of matte)
  • Heavy black endpapers

I'm excited about my new printing vendor. They have better quality and a lower environmental impact. Compared to the first editions, you'll notice more vivid color and deeper blacks. The heavier paper has better opacity, minimizing image show-through, and feels better in your hands. I will be updating my entire catalog of fine art nude photobooks to this higher quality printing. In addition to upgrading to glossy, heavyweight paper, I'll be fixing a few shortcomings that bothered me about previous books. These changes fall into two categories:

Second Printings

Second printings are essentially the same book concept as first printings, just physical better quality. Minor changes include image alignment, typos, font sizes, text layout. Second printings are denoted only by a note on the copyright page.

Second Editions

Second editions have upgraded content, with new images and some images  reworked for artistic reasons. In second editions the content will be expanded and reorganized, and the essays will be rewritten. "Second Edition" will be added to the title, with a new ISBN (catalog number) and the first edition will no longer be available.

Stretch Goals

Printing has certain production minimums to be cost effective. If we hit certain goals, I can revise more titles right away. The art card set included with multi-book rewards grows with each goal.

Goal: $2,500: Achieved! Total of 6 titles available, with a book and art card for each, adds: Ava's Journey (Second printing) see original .

Goal: $4,500: Add Pink Sands (Second printing) as 8th book.

Goal: $5,500: As above; plus, upgrade Secret Embrace to second edition with more photos.

Other Stuff

South Carolina Residents

I am located in Charleston SC and a licensed retailer. Only South Carolina customers must add 6% sales tax. City of Charleston add 9% sales tax; Daniel Island 8%. Kickstarter doesn't do this automatically, you must use the "adjust pledge" feature. There is no option to sell to South Carolina addresses without sales tax. Outside South Carolina, including international, no Charleston or South Carolina sales tax.

International Import Duties, VAT

If you live outside the United States, your purchase is likely subject to import duties and/or VAT collected by your government. VAT is not included in the reward prices. Original artworks (limited edition archival photographs) are accompanied by import documents which normally results in reduced tax rates. I can also use your FedEx or UPS account to expedite, please inquire. 

Shipping

All items will be expertly packed and guaranteed to arrive in pristine condition. In the unlikely event of damage or loss, a replacement will be issued promptly. All rewards over $100 will be shipped with tracking. Rewards over $500 will require a signature (unless you request otherwise). U.S. shipping is included in all rewards. Additional shipping is required for international orders. Books are double-packed (cardboard wrap inside a box, with bubble packaging in between). This results in a larger, heavier package, but is worth it. I aim to neither lose nor make money on shipping.  

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk. I have completed numerous Kickstarters for backers. I keep multiple backups of my files, including the cloud.
