Haikoodle - A sweet little book of haiku and doodles

€7,222

[campagna in italiano più sotto]

Haikoodle is a book of illustrated poetry with 52 haiku (in english and italian) and 52 doodles.

Haiku are a short Japanese form of poetry in which you must use just 17 on, that correspond to our syllables. In every haiku you need to have a "cutting" element, that represents the juxtaposition of two images or thoughts.

Doodles are... well, everybody knows what doodles are...

Haikoodle will be a 15x15cm book with 128 pages of a nice hammered-textured snow colored paper. The slate cover will be embossed with our logo to ensure a smooth look. If you order it here on Kickstarter, you'll receive an exclusive handmade stitched binding copy and some goodies. We know it's a book, but we like to think about it as the perfect gift... just a hint: we ship in december! :)

How it all started?

Haikoodle is a project we started as a game, as a challenge:
"write some haiku!"
"ok, but you illustrate 'em"
"ok, but write at least one per week"
"ok, but we share them on the internet"
"ok, but we even publish 'em"
"ok, but I... ok, we chose the paper"... and so on for days.

It all started in Paris, at the Poetry slam world championship, where we saw an Haiku slam. It was fun and enlightening, we came out talking about just haiku and how they made us think, dream, wander and feel. We came home in Italy and started preparing something graphically pleasant to go along some of the haiku, and here we are.

Why 52?

"Haiku are short, I want thousands of them, not just 52, you lazy!"

Modern days tend to make you think this way, but we wanted to bring back a different kind of pace to our project. Reading haiku and looking at doodles can be quick and nice, but we want you to enjoy haikoodle, so... take your time... relax... and let your imagination take off from our haikoodles. Our prescription is:
- one haikoodle per week for one year
or
- one haikoodle a day for a month and a half
or
- one haikoodle an hour for two days straight
or... anyway, you got the point.

Take your own time and read or simply look at Martina's illustrations, they're just one of the many possible interpretations of the haiku, come up with your own, or, viceversa, get inspired by the doodle and write a haiku about it. We want to give you the best possible mix of these two art forms.

What do I get?

As you can see from the feeew rewards, we got you covered...

These are the things you can get for the amount you pledge:

Here's what you can get for the amount you pledge
Here's what you can get for the amount you pledge

Note that each book you order on kickstarter comes with the exclusive stitched binding. The commercial copies, after this campaign, will be sewn in modern binding.

For each book in a bundle offer, you can get the exclusive hand drawn haikoodle on the first page just adding €8 to your offer, but if you buy more than two copies, contact us and we'll find a way to make you save some money. Write to us even if you want to add something to your reward (like a second mug or t-shirt), we'll tell you how much you have to pledge.

You can chose the subject of your printed or hand-drawn haikoodle among the ones we will publish on our sites at the end of our campaign. For the personalized haikoodle you will chose a subject and we'll create an haikoodle just for you!

If you're so kind to chose the Homer reward tier (thanksthanksthanks), we will come wherever you want and perform a poetry reading and a live drawing session that will put a spell on all your friends! Martina will draw your attention and draw all the haikoodle that Simone will read. We assure you that the performance will be really enjoyable, due to Simone's long experience in poetry slams (he accidentally won the italian slam championship twice in a row) and Martina's life through academies (Brera and La Scala Theatre) and compulsive ink drawing.

For all the Homers and the people we can reach in person, with every copy two free 30 seconds hugs, one from Martina and one from Simone.

NOTE TO ALL NON-ITALIAN SUPPORTERS - For everyone who orders a physical reward and has to pay a shipping fee, we'll insert some goodies that match that cost, so that you don't waste precious money!

Where does my money go?

Self publishing is not an easy path and everything comes with a price that can be surprisingly... GINORMOUS (at least for us...). We want to be sure that the product you'll get in your hands will be as pleasant as we can afford for that price. We want to print 200 sewn copies of the book and this can cost us up to €1400, the ISBN code alone costs around €150. In order to start the production of t-shirts, the printing process costs almost €900 (for the first batch), and for mugs we have an estimate €200 minimum. If we reach our goal, fingers crossed, there will be Kickstarter and payement management fees to cover. And don't forget that we guarantee free shipping at least in Italy.

First stretch goal: €4500 - create your Haikoodle

We'll ad two pages with the same frame structure of the book, but YOU will be the one who will create the Haikoodle in them.
Take a picture of your work and mail it to us, we'll gather them all in a dedicated section on our new site.

Second stretch goal: €5000 - a bag of love from Haikoodle

We'll pack all your physical rewards in a nice and soft cotton backpack with our logo, so you can spread the love for Haikoodle wherever you go.

Third stretch goal: ...???...

[---Versione italiana---]

Haikoodle è un libro di poesia illustrata con 52 haiku (in italiano e in inglese) e altrettanti doodle, che in italiano vuol dire "scarabocchi".

Gli haiku sono brevi poesie di origine giapponese, composte soltanto da 17 on, ovvero suoni che potrebbero corrispondere alle nostre sillabe. In ogni haiku serve un elemento di "taglio" che rappresenti la giustapposizione di due immagini o di due pensieri.

Gli scarabocchi, invece... beh, sapete tutti cosa sono...

Haikoodle sarà un libro di 128 pagine da 15x15cm, in una bellissima carta martellata color neve. La copertina ardesia riporterà il nostro logo in bassorilievo, per mantenere un aspetto sobrio e poco invasivo. Se ordinerete il libro qui, su Kickstarter, la vostra copia verrà rilegata a mano con la tecnica giapponese e ci aggiungeremo qualche regalino. Sappiamo che è un libro, ma "ci piace pensarlo come una perfetta idea regalo" [cit.]... giusto una nota: spediamo a dicembre! :)

Come è iniziato tutto?

Haikoodle è un progetto nato come un gioco, una sfida:
"scrivi degli haiku!"
"ok, ma tu li illustri"
"ok, ma ne scrivi almeno uno a settimana"
"ok, ma li condividiamo su internet"
"ok, ma li pubblichiamo"
"ok, ma scelgo io... ok, scegliamo noi la carta"... e così via per giorni.

Tutto ha avuto inizio a Parigi, alla Coppa del mondo di Poetry slam, dove abbiamo assistito a uno slam di Haiku. È stato divertente e illuminante, siamo usciti parlando solo di haiku e di quanto ci facessero pensare, sognare, vagare e sentire. Siamo tornati in Italia e abbiamo cominciato a preparare qualcosa di graficamente piacevole per accompagnare qualche haiku e ora eccoci qui.

Perché 52?

"Gli haiku son corti, ne voglio migliaia, non solo 52, scansafatiche!"

La frenesia della vita moderna ci porta a pensarla così, ma il nostro progetto vuole riportare un ritmo differente nelle persone che lo vorranno assaggiare. Leggere gli haiku e guardare gli scarabocchi può essere semplice e veloce, ma vogliamo che vi godiate Haikoodle, perciò... rilassatevi... prendetevi il vostro tempo... e lasciate che la vostra fantasia prenda il volo dalle nostre pagine. Il medico consiglia:
- un haikoodle alla settimana per un anno
oppure
- un haikoodle al giorno per un mese e mezzo
oppure
- un haikoodle all'ora per due giorni consecutivi
oppure... insomma, avete capito.

Trovate il vostro ritmo, leggete o semplicemente guardate le illustrazioni di Martina, che sono soltanto una delle possibili interpretazioni degli haiku, immaginatene altre, oppure, viceversa, lasciatevi ispirare dallo scarabocchio e scrivete un vostro haiku. Vogliamo darvi il miglior abbraccio tra queste due forme d'arte.

Cosa mi date?

Come potrete vedere dalla quantità di ricompense, abbiamo pensato a tutto...

Ecco cosa potrete ricevere in cambio delle vostre offerte:

Ecco le ricompense per il tuo sostegno
Ecco le ricompense per il tuo sostegno

Ricordate che ogni libro ordinato su kickstarter sarà rilegato a mano con la tecnica giapponese. Questa campagna ci permetterà di stampare le copie commerciali in brossura.

Per ogni libro incluso in un'offerta, sarà possibile richiedere un haikoodle fatto a mano sulla prima pagina con soli €8 in più, ma se acquistate più di due copie, contattateci, potremo accordarci per un'offerta più economica. Scriveteci anche se volete aggiungere qualcosa alla vostra ricompensa (come una seconda tazza o maglietta), così vi potremo dire l'ammontare esatto dell'offerta.

Potrete scegliere il soggetto delle stampe e degli haikoodle disegnati a mano tra quelli pubblicati online al termine della campagna.
Per l'haikoodle personalizzato, invece, potrete scegliere un soggetto a vostro piacere e noi creeremo un haikoodle solo per voi!

Se sarete così gentili da scegliere la ricompensa The Homer (graziegraziegrazie), verremo ovunque vorrete e daremo vita a uno spettacolo di reading e disegno dal vivo che incanterà i vostri amici! Martina disegnerà tutti gli haikoodle che Simone leggerà. La lunga esperienza nel poetry slam di Simone (che ha vinto un paio d'anni di fila il campionato italiano) e gli anni di accademia (Brera e Teatro alla Scala) e di disegno compulsivo di Martina, possono assicurarvi un'ottima performance.

Per tutti gli Homer e per chi potremo raggiungere di persona, alla consegna di ogni copia due abbracci gratis da 30 secondi, uno da Martina e uno da Simone.

Dove finiscono i miei soldi?

Stampare un libro non è un'impresa semplice e ogni cosa può arrivare a costare cifre soprendentemente... ENORMI (almeno per le nostre tasche). Vogliamo assicurarci che l'oggetto che riceverete sia il migliore possibile per il prezzo che richiediamo. Vogliamo stampare 200 copie brossurate del libro, questo può costarci fino a €1400, il solo codice ISBN costa circa €150. Per avviare la stampa delle magliette, il primo lotto ci verrebbe a costare quasi €900, per la stampa delle tazze il costo minimo è €200. Se dovessimo raggiungere il goal, incrociamo le dita, dovremo corrispondere a Kickstarter i costi di gestione del progetto e dei pagamenti. Ed è nostra premura garantire la spedizione gratuita in tutta Italia.

Primo stretch goal: €4500 - crea il tuo Haikoodle

Aggiungeremo due pagine con la stessa impaginazione del libro, ma sarete VOI a crearci un Haikoodle.
Fotografate il vostro lavoro e speditecelo, lo inseriremo in una sezione dedicata del nostro nuovo sito.

Secondo stretch goal: €5000 - un sacco d'amore da Haikoodle

Impacchetteremo tutte le ricompense fisiche in un soffice zainetto di cotone con il nostro logo, così che possiate diffondere ovunque l'amore per Haikoodle.

Third stretch goal: ...???...

 

Risks and challenges

[versione in italiano più sotto]

If we'll reach our goal, after every copy is printed, we'll have a nice amount of books to bind for you, we hope to have some haikoodles to draw and some to invent for you. All these phases will take time, but we already asked some experts to help us if the binding process surpasses our expectations, in order to give Martina time to draw all your rewards.
Every production process can go wrong, but if any of the goodies involved in this campaing gets stuck or something goes wrong, we'll try to inform you as soon as possible and maintain the original deadline.

---

Se raggiungiamo l'obiettivo, dopo che tutte le copie saranno stampate, avremo una ragguardevole mole di libri da rilegare, speriamo di avere qualche haikoodle da disegnare e qualcuno da creare per voi. Tutte queste fasi prenderanno tempo, ma abbiamo già chiesto a degli esperti un aiuto se la fase di rilegatura dovesse superare le nostre aspettative, così che Martina abbia il tempo di illustrare tutte le ricompense.
Tutti i processi produttivi possono incappare in problemi, ma se anche solo uno degli oggetti coinvolti in questa campagna dovesse riscontrare contrattempi, cercheremo di informarvi in tempo mantenendo il più possibile invariata la data di spedizione.
