Bird's Eye View 1892 Map of Atlanta - 1000 Piece Puzzle

$3,388

The Bird’s Eye View Map of Atlanta in 1892 is our first puzzle. We are excited to bring this beautiful historic image to life in a tabletop format. As we are located in Atlanta, this project is special to us, and we hope to you as well. The puzzle is comprised of 1,000 unique pieces and measures 20 x 28 inches when assembled.

About the Map & Artist:  Augustus Koch was born in Germany in 1840. He moved to the US before the Civil War where he served in The Corps of Engineers. After the war, he traveled to cities around the country and illustrated Bird’s Eye View maps from hot air balloons. Augustus drew a series of perspective based maps from dozens of locations. In 1892, he tied off his hot air balloon near Grant Park and created this beautifully drawn map of Atlanta and the surrounding area complete with notable locations and street names.

Residents and non-residents of Atlanta will enjoy comparing the late 19th century landscape to today. Whether you’re purchasing it as an activity to complete with your family, or as a gift for someone else, this gorgeous map lets you assemble the history of Atlanta, piece by piece.

STRETCH GOAL:  If we can reach $4,000, we will be able to use a different printing technique to allow for a higher quality box. The puzzle itself will remain unchanged as that level of quality is already being done at the primary funding target. Should that new production process goal be reached, we will be able to redesign the box to a slightly different graphic layout.

Help us make our own history as a new startup studio by purchasing this challenging puzzle. This is an important first step in our journey to bring other tabletop experiences to life. Thank you for exploring our campaign page and for your support.

Risks and challenges

The image design and box layout are complete as well as sourcing the manufacturing vendor. At this point, all they need is the green light to begin producing the puzzle. This campaign is essentially a pre-order system for us to accurately gauge how many puzzles to produce.

This puzzle will make a terrific gift for the upcoming holiday and they will be ready before the gift giving season begins.

Estimated timeline:
* Kickstarter campaign ends - Sept 14
* Final order placed with manufacturer - week of Sept 19th
* Production takes 4-6 weeks
* Puzzle copies arrive - end of Oct/early Nov
* Begin shipping to backers - 2nd week of Nov

Additional copies will be manufactured beyond the totals here on the Kickstarter campaign and made available in November. However, the quantity of additional copies that we will produce is unknown at this time. To ensure you will get yours before the end of the year, please purchase them during the Kickstarter campaign.
