Holiday Delivery - North America

For "Holiday Single" and "Holiday Package" backers we are committed to delivering your books before Christmas Day 2018. Backers must fill out the survey ASAP after the campaign ends. We must have your address by November 29th to help ensure delivery before Christmas Day.

This is a story about Norman

Norman is a young boy who wants to be an architect just like his mom.  Along the way he explores his imagination, meets new friends, and learns about the joy of architecture. 

This book is simple and relatable with gorgeous drawings to make the storytelling come to life. At its core, Norman's Architecture Adventure is about how having an imagination is the greatest adventure anyone can have. Nothing holds Norman back, he sees what could be and he creates it. He is unrestricted by age, ethnicity, or preconceptions.  

This book features over 30 pieces of original art by author and illustrator, Josh Sanabria. In his own words, "I really put my heart and soul into writing and drawing this. After years of drawing straight lines as an architectural designer it was hard to loosen up and let things flow but I'm proud of the spirit that came through these drawings."

Today didn't start off as Norman expected. What will he do?

Our hope is that this book, even in a small way, challenges gender and racial roles and is part of a larger movement to encourage greater diversity in the design field. 

This book was inspired by our friend who is one of the youngest female African-American architects in the United States. We believe that by creating fun and approachable stories we can begin to change the narrative around diversity in all fields, not just architecture.

Support this campaign and help us create a world where curiosity and creativity is encouraged for everyone, everywhere.

Risks and challenges

The risks for this project are very low. We have carried out many publishing projects before and successfully delivered to customers.

For "Holiday Single" and "Holiday Package" backers in the US, Canada, and Mexico we are committed to delivering your books before Christmas Day 2018. The exact day of delivery will vary depending on where you live since the books will ship from California.

"Holiday" backers must fill out the survey ASAP after the campaign ends. We must have your address by November 29th to help ensure delivery before Christmas Day. Seriously, please fill out the survey immediately when it arrives.

As a requirement and in all human honesty we cannot 100% guarantee delivery for Christmas, however we will work night and day to bring those odds close to 100%.
