Posters and extra orders

Posted by Arras Wiedorn (Creator)

Hey everyone! I just found out from Jennifer Miller what the stretch goal poster is going to be- the Ridgway's Hawk, a beautiful, critically endangered member of the Buteo family that is now only found in a small part of the Dominican Republic.

Also, if you know anyone who missed out on the Kickstarter, or if you wanted to order a few extra things for yourself, please drop me a line at animus.panthera [at] gmail [dot] com.

Hello everyone! It's been a while since the last update- not much is happening at the moment. The artists are currently finishing up their artwork (they have until the 1st of October, so about a month left), and then I'll be starting on the hard part: putting everything together and getting it ready to print!

More books and add-ons

Posted by Arras Wiedorn (Creator)

Hello everyone! I've gotten a few questions regarding purchasing Losing Altitude books now that the Kickstarter is over- and before I make any decisions on that count, I'd like to ask a few questions from you guys:

-Would any of you be interested in purchasing "add-ons"- that is, extra books, playing cards, postcards, bookmarks, charms, or stickers, in addition to what you'd already be getting?

-Do you know anyone who didn't get a chance to back the Kickstarter, but still wants to?

-There might be some books left over after all Kickstarter orders have been fulfilled, which I would sell somewhere so that the artists can get their share of profits from those books- do you have a preferred platform? (i.e. Etsy, a dedicated website, etc.?)

*A note, because I know this applies to a handful of backers: If you're one of the artists for the book and are interested in purchasing anything, that is totally doable and will be handled separately. The add-ons system only applies to backers who aren't one of the artists.

The Kickstarter just finished! This time around it was very successful- 147% funded, $8,130, 103 backers, and all four stretch goals reached! So what now? Well, the artists have until October 1st to finish their art, and then myself and a few others will be putting everything together to get it ready for the printer- I'll be sure to keep you updated with the progress!

Macaw stretch goal reached!

Posted by Arras Wiedorn (Creator)

Stretch goal reached! We've got 5 hours left in the Kickstarter, and I'm so very happy how it's been going! Cari's been working on the Hyacinth Macaw sticker and has a little preview of the painting in-progress for you guys. So pretty!
