ECHO A LA MODE
This is the book that my fans have been asking for - one featuring only the best of my work. The base required amount will allow me to produce a 64-page soft cover version and a limited number of hard cover version of ECHO A LA MODE, an art book featuring art, notes, sketches, photos, and details about my process that everyone has been begging me for. Stretch goals will be added to improve the length and quality of the book. For example, ECHO NOUVEAU successfully reached stretch goals that allowed an increase to 100 pages, a hard-cover, a beautiful spot varnish, and gold foil embossed slip-cases for Kickstarter backers and collectors only.
THIRD STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED: $15,000
We've HIT $10,000! and covered all of my stretch goals. So what next? If we hit $15,000 then I will reprint my sold out first book, ECHO NOUVEAU (http:www.echo-nouveau.com). It will have to be a soft cover version so everyone with a first-run hard cover already can cherish theirs forever - but Laz will fix the few errors there are. Oh - and ALL Kickstarter backers of ECHO A LA MODE will automatically receive one whether they pledged additionally or not.
So please share this project, and help me bring back ECHO NOUVEAU.
FIRST STRETCH GOAL REACHED!: $9,000
I am including a special gift in every book for Backers now that we reached $9,000. There will be a custom book plate in every book for Kickstarter backers as an extra-special 'thank you'.
SECOND STRETCH GOAL REACHED: $10,000
Now that we reached $10,000, these two things will happen:
1. I will take extra time and care to include a tutorial on my process, including drawings and screen shots, into ECHO A LA MODE. This will increase the page count and over all cost of printing, but it will be worth it.
2. I will now include all of my Shadowrun portraits, for example:
Among all the other wonderful art that will be included is my entire Goddesses of Cuisine series:
I have successfully run two previous Kickstarter campaigns (ECHO NOUVEAU, and the ICE CREAM CTHULHU TRIPTYCH) (thank you contributors!!!), and I have proven how to manage effective campaigns and satisfy all of my contributors. As the pledges increase, more and more images of the book will be posted as it evolves in the design phase.
This book will include my entire collection of food goddesses, as well as the desired set of Cthulhu pieces. The format of the book is sixteen inches high - so the size of the artwork will be impressive and beautiful. We have set up the rewards to include gift certificates sent in time for the holiday season!! :D Early pledges will receive a holiday card from me - to include in the gift! :>
Risks and challenges
I've done this before successfully - my studio partner is a professional who has published many projects including my previous book ECHO NOUVEAU through Kickstarter. My printer will be ready to receive the book in January after the campaign. The books will return from the printer in March-April. That gives me 1-2 months to get them to the backers - covering errors in printing, shipping, etc.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
