      Thanks Meerkatboy! The kickstarter has ended, but if you still want to have your name in the book or be in the first shipping of this book, just email me and say so julian@ThePeopleOfBurningMan.com . We haven't sent the materials out the printer yet, but we're getting close.

      In time, there will be a way to order the book from http://ThePeopleOfBurningMan.com

    9. Creator Meerkatboy on March 22, 2011

      Can I still pledge money? Is there a way I can pre-order / pre-pay for a copy of the book?

    14. Creator Joshua Martelli on March 11, 2011

      Hey way to go Julian!!! So happy for you! I donated as a way to thank-you for your professionalism and spirit in documenting this creative and positive universe we call Burningman. Well that and to see a bunch of hot naked Playans! Kudos and keep up the great work! [H3R3TIC]

    15. Creator NYC Village Halloween Parade on March 11, 2011

      Congratulations ! We are so happy it worked out ! Can't wait to see the book. Let us know when to let you know how we would like to be named!

    16. Creator Adriel Ginsburg on March 10, 2011

      Julian, congrats on being fully funded! I can't wait for the book to come out. I also have a question. I pledged the $100 back in early February, but I'm not sure where or how to indicate the two names to be printed in the book if it isn't too late. If I could do family names, I'd love to have the Ginsburg family and the Cobb Family as the two. If not, Age Ginsburg and Troy Cobb as the two. Thanks so much, and best of luck on the larger scale of publishing!

    17. Creator Tanya on March 9, 2011

      Julian, this is my first project that I am backing here on kickstarter and I'm sure this won't be the last either! As an artist myself I know it is not an easy task to advance in our profession and get the recognition we deserve. It is thanks to the social media and tools like kickstarter that have allowed us to grab the bull by its horns and do things the way we have always wanted thanks to a community that supports us.

      Kudos for the funding! You deserve it, your work is stunning.

      This is actually a birthday present for my fiance who is a die-hard burner. I yet still have to go. This year will be the year. Please inscribe his name as Michael Harpel aka. Sheriff Harpel

      All the best and I cannot wait to receive it! Do you know by any chance when it will be ready??
      -Tanya

    38. Creator lindes on January 28, 2011

      Sweet sweet! This is a beautiful book, that I'm lucky enough to be the proud owner of a copy of the original (and wow, that was hand-bound?? that's amazing! It looks so pro!), and now I get to be the proud owner of the "official" version, too! Yay! (Note: please use my first and last name, not just this username. You know the details. ;))

    39. Creator flint on January 26, 2011

      I've always looked for a copy to purchase after perusing the copy at Meerkat Manor. Now it'll happen.

    40. Creator Annie Sprinkle on January 25, 2011

      Julian, if you get way more money than needed, make it come with a deck of playing cards or ????

    41. Creator steve schimmel on January 24, 2011

    43. Creator Michael York on January 22, 2011

    44. Creator twinotter on January 21, 2011

      Go go go! This is an awesome book. The photographs are real cool individually, but the best is the layout and the sequencing of pictures. Lots of different stories are told in it. :)

    45. Creator Clint Parker on January 21, 2011

      This was my first year at the Burn. Amazing,amazing,amazing. Payday I will be here to get up on this and make my pledge. I'm excited for you, and eagerly await the incredible images. Peace and we'll see you in 2011

    47. Creator Annie Sprinkle on January 20, 2011

      Horray! Go Julian. Recieve the love and abundance. That's the hard part. But you can do it!

    48. Creator Patrick on January 20, 2011

      You're all clear kid. Now let's blow this thing and go home.

    49. Creator Julian Cash on January 20, 2011

      Thank you Casey and Benjy! It's profoundly moving to see my friends and other people care so much that are willing to pay money to make the project succeed. And thank daMongolain! Heh.

      This "little project" was a large amount of the energy from my life for many years. And frankly, so fulfilling. Half my friends came from taking photographs at Burning Man. And it very much changed and improved my life.
