Wow, thank you! Enjoy :)
The book and stickers arrived today! Thank you so much, it's all gorgeous!
Got our book today and boy is it beautiful.
It's now late November. What is the status of the book?
Thanks for checking in, and your tremendous support! I'm about to put out an official announcement soon, as we are putting the finishing touches on the book. It looks like it will ship late October (about a month behind schedule). We took the extra time to make this book extra special, and hope you agree :)
You'll get a survey shortly asking for your address. If you think of it, I'd love to see a photo where you hang your shadow box piece. Feel free to reach out at any time with questions!
Hello! I was wondering if there was going to be an update soon on when the shadow boxes/books/stickers packages will be sent out? I haven't been asked for my information yet/don't know who I should give it to. I'm really looking forward to everything! Hope all is well, wishing all the best!
Awesome! Have fun with them everyone!
Received my stickers today. Thank you! I have also started sharing them.
I got my sticker pack in the mail yesterday. Thanks! I already started sharing a few of them!
Sweet! Thanks for letting me know, Now I can stop worrying. I look forward to getting them!
Thanks for checking, all sticker only rewards are going out this week. We're sending them to you the second we get them from the printer!
I haven't received my sticker reward yet; I got the 250 sticker only reward, and I'm just wondering if the have all been sent out yet? I'm just worried that there was a glitch and i was missed or something like that.
Likely they will be limited quantities available after the campaign. We'll do our best! If you want to be sure, all preorders through kickstarter are guaranteed autographed copies.
That's really great. Thanks.
Will be there a possibility to buy the book after this ks-campaign?
Shipping is included in all sticker only rewards! Thanks!
Is international shipping of the 20$ pledge free?
Hey Kristen, that's really cool to hear! I can't wait to see what comes of all this. It's going to be epic, with all the support you all have given!
Thanks Brent! The outpouring of support is pretty incredible.
Great to hear from you April! That was an incredible mural that you headed up. It will surely be featured in the book. So great to hear that it has inspired more in the area. You should be proud!
Congrats Matthew(& all other backers) this was my 1st involvement w/kickstarter & I cldnt be any prouder to have "You are Beautiful" to be my #1 on that list. Looking fwrd to see it bloom!
Congratulations on being succesfully funded, Matthew, I`m really looking forward to your book! :D
It's been awhile! I was so happy to find out about this project and support it. I can never thank you enough for your work on the Marquette Elementary fence mural back in '07. Last time I went down there (last spring?) our mural still looked great and had even inspired two other fence-paintings on the same street! Looking forward to the book (and I'd love to help out if you need it),
Thanks for sharing your story, and your support. It's incredible.
Back around 2006, when I was a barista at a coffee shop in Bridgeport, I received one of your priceless silver stickers in my tip jar. And I have to confess that thinking about it still elicits a big happy grin on my face. Now I live across the country, but I stumbled across your Kickstarter through the wonders of the internet. I'm honored to have the chance to return the support and so glad to hear of the longevity of your project. Good luck with everything!
I agree VozProto! And we promise it will not disappoint!
Thanks for the support :)
Good enough for me!
I think it would make a fantastic kinda book to just leave out. I can't imagine anyone seeing it and NOT picking it up for a browse!
We're going to let the design process dictate what the book ends up to be. The team at Firebelly design have some incredible ideas, that will blow you away. Likely, it'll be a nicely sized soft cover book. Regardless, it's guaranteed to be packed full of history, incredible stories, and leave a smile on your face.
You are beautiful!
Got a question... the book. Is this gonna be a big hardcover coffee table style book?
Something in between?
Great question Brent! I'm not sure what the timeline will for getting photos in. Any thing is possible! Be sure to send them in quick, and if not - we'll be sure to proudly display them on the website!
I do have one question: if you get the stickers in february, will it be able to get your own photo in the book? Or is the book already made to print? Just wondering.
Thanks Michiel! With your gracious help it will keep spreading!
I love the simplicity of the project and hope it will spread worldwide!
Me too Brent! We're on track to make it happen!
Thanks Jennifer! There have been many hands (and hearts) hard at work to do all that has been done!
I really hope this gets funded! I love the project!
This is a beautiful project! Great work!
