"The HSPPA: Volume Three - Fantastic Props and Where to Find Them" is a must-have for the film fanatic and will make a great conversation piece and/or the perfect gift!!!
The Horror & SciFi Prop Preservation Association (HSPPA) is a traveling museum of screen used props and wardrobes.
For the last four years we have traveled the midwest and southwest USA, exhibiting a myriad of items at conventions and theaters for tens of thousands of patrons....but there are even more who have not had the opportunity to visit an exhibition.
....the solution? Bringing The HSPPA to you!!! In book form!!!
Previous Volumes included roughly 75 props and 150-174 pages of hi-res images and stories...."Volume Three" will follow the same format and style, including items from the main collection of The HSPPA along with items from our Featured Exhibitors. Each piece will have high-resolution photographs, information, personal stories & anecdotes. This is all in the purpose to strengthen The HSPPA's ability to preserve filmic history, and in doing so, help save props in dire need of conservation and restoration, and to share them with you.
The HSPPA isn't just a display of objects from movies, it's a showcase of iconic items that have an incredible meaning to different people. Films touch us on a truly emotional, personal level....we connect, we relate, they can mark a time in our lives of significance. It's these moments that make The HSPPA more than just a showcase....it's the personal aspect, and this book will continue this tradition. We need your help to make it happen!!
We are excited to have contributions in this Volume from: Nick J. Benson, Paul T. Taylor, Matt Falletta, Daniel Emery Taylor, Craig Champion, Chris Szydlowski, Mark Short, David Kostman, Ernesto Avina, Charles Mineo, Jack Norman, Will Lee, Jason Guy and more!!

You will get an actual production made nail appliance for the character of "NIGHTCRAWLER" from "X-MEN 2", preserved in a membrane frame and a COA from The HSPPA. [nail you receive will be at random and not necessarily ones pictured, there are slight differences between them depending on what finger they were for, etc. Each item is unused and unfinished, but is an original prop from the production]
Risks and challenges
This project is already substantially completed. Our photos have been catalogued and layouts have already begun, we've already obtained an ISBN and professional cover art, and we have the help of a consultant to help us ensure successful fulfillment. Additional reward items have been designed and, in some cases, already been completed.
Finally, print-on-demand technology means we'll be able to create our products reliably regardless of funding level.
Our budget is straightforward, it is for the books, monies allocated beyond the POD costs ($20 per book) are to add stock of books for our live exhibits throughout the year. In addition to production costs of the enamle pins and shipping.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
