We are raising funds from people like you to make an Art Book about Nepal in 2 different formats:
✪ One for you. An exclusive printed edition only available for backers during the active period of this campaign. Order it here
✪ One for the world. A free promotional ebook to promote tourism in Nepal. Specially designed for tablets and laptops. Download it here.
The earthquake and subsequent aftershocks of April 2015 were a tragic episode in the history of Nepal. But the idea of Apocalypse that mass media have shown us is not as real as it seems. They gave full coverage to the tragedy and that helped the whole world begin a major aid campaign. But they forgot they were also destroying one of the most important parts of the Nepalese economy: tourism. And the fact is that Nepal remains an exotic, magical and wonderful destination. Even after the quake.
"Tourism generates each year about 335 million dollars for the country. It is estimated that the money every tourist spend maintain 10 or 11 Nepalese" Lonely Planet
✈ TRAVEL & BOOK
If the project is successful I will travel to Nepal for 6 weeks to do the inspiration part: illustrations, sketches, explore the Nepali culture, etc.... On the way back I will start the working part: finish the illustrations, texts and prepare your rewards.
My name is Bernat Moreno and I am an illustrator. I have self-published a couple of illustrated books: IBIZA! and I ❤ Mistakes. As a result I have had the honor of participating in a newsletter campaign for the Canary Islands (Spain) and I witnessed the value of Art to promote tourism.
In 2008 I traveled to Nepal and I was impressed by the exuberance of its natural environment and the warmth of the nepalese people. If the project is successful I will return to do the book.

A book halfway between an Art book, a Travel guide and a Souvenir.
As a good Urban Sketcher, I must travel to Nepal to do the illustrations (I like to draw on site). But I have prepared some illustrations to let you know what the book could look like.
Special thanks to Berta Tilmantaite for allowing me to use some of her photographs to be illustrated by hand. Also to Mak and Lara Moore for helping me with translation.

Risks and challenges
This is my third crowdfunding project (the first on kickstarter). I learned a lot from the previous, most importantly: everything is always slower than you planned. I hope to give all the rewards in time but if still I do not get it, I hope you don´t mind waiting a little. Surely the result is worth it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
