Inside the stories
Inside the stories

A successful Kickstarter will allow us to spread the book worldwide and to create extra content such as the Journal of Forgotten colors and giclée prints, etc. (Check the funds distribution below).

A TRAVEL TO IMAGINATION TO BELIEVE IN REALITY AGAIN

Fifteen stories with a great aftertaste. This book is about channeling your convictions to change the future, accepting differences, questioning received knowledge and about respecting others… and doing it with the smile! The aim? To build a fairer, more compassionate and braver world.

WHO WE ARE

Play Attitude is an unusual publisher, established to realize the dreams & artistic visions of a group of people that could never get them published through large commercial publishers. At Play we work based on our personal desires, not market trends or commercial possibilities. All our projects have this touch of "artist's love" that make them truly special. Check out our beloved works: Ravings of love & death, "El Recetario Mágico" and The Guardian of Imagination.

Behind this project there are ordinary people, dreamers, with whom you probably share many more things than being citizens of the same planet.

In order of appearance: Carlos Ruiz (designer & Motion Graphics), Naiara Chaler (Project coordination & communication), Efrén Garcia (Team leader) David G. Forés (Illustrator) and Desiree Arancibia (Illustration & Support).

Credits of the project:
*Illustrated by David G. Forés with the inestimable help of Desiree Arancibia and Marta García, and the participation of Claudia Blin.
*Written by Silvia G. Guirado. Translated by M. baste-Kraan & C.S. Ord and revised by Kari Friedenson.
*Original soundtrack by Teo Grimalt.

LAST MESSAGE FROM THE CREATORS

If you like our project, please, share it! Sharing is caring. It is only way to let people know about this project and make it happen. How can you do it? Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest Carmesina or simply telling your friends about it.

Thanks a lot! :)

Risks and challenges

As always in this kind of projects the biggest challenge is to deliver the rewards. We have got experience in crowdfunding campaigns, such as Edgar Allan Poe illustrated: Ravings of love & death. This knowledge makes us confident in our ability to deliver the product properly. All the contributors from previous projects are absolutely happy with the product, specially with the quality and detailing of the rewards, which cheer us up to keep on doing great projects in which we believe.
