On The Other Side Of Town

£7,793

212

This is a story about the hidden places in our town. 

It has a little text and some very large detailed drawings, which I've been working on over the past two years. 

All of the planning and layout, the writing and revising of the text, the printing options and even the paper stock are organised and ready to go. Your pledges and pre-orders will allow On The Other Side of Town to be printed, turning what is currently a collection of poems and drawings into a beautiful large format picture book.  

For those who haven't used Kickstarter before, the project only gets funding if the total goal is reached through pledges - this is an all or nothing campaign, so please spread the word to encourage it to be a success. 

The video and images below should give you an impression of what the book will be like - I hope you are as excited as me to turn this fantastical adventure into something physical and solid for people to enjoy. 

Tom

Risks and challenges

Probably the largest challenge if this project is successfully funded will be to post all of the books safely so that they arrive in perfect condition - The book is quite large and not of a standard size so without a final printed version I can't test the packaging with any certainty. To overcome this I will have experiment after the completion of the project and using different mailers, to ensure that each copy remains box fresh despite the various bumps they might receive across the world!
