Amazing Stretch Goal Number One
Hey there Artcadians!
I'm so excited about this update :-)
We're pretty close to 100% right now (88% as I'm typing this) and with 11 days still to go, there's a really good chance that we'll get the book funded. I'm humbled by the support for this project and I'll do everything I can to make sure it's something that we're ALL proud to be involved with.
With that in mind, it seems like a good time to announce the first stretch goal. For those new to Kickstarter, a stretch goal is like a 'power up' that adds a cool bonus to the existing rewards, once the total score (ok, pledge amount!) hits a certain number.
So, here's the first Artcade stretch goal:
If the total backing for the project hits £12,000, every copy of the book will come with a specially produced CD copy of The British IBM's acclaimed first album!
This album has pretty much been the unofficial soundtrack to the whole project, right from the very beginning. Every time I sit down in front of my Mac to do more work restoring the artwork for the book, The British IBM is on 'shuffle/repeat' :-) I find it inspiring, uplifting and it helps me to focus on getting stuff done. You can hear some of the tracks by clicking on the album cover below:
Aidy, David and Paul's unique blend of vintage-computing inspired indie rock is something that I really want to share with you all, and the boys have really committed to the project by offering their music as part of this stretch goal - thank you very, very much gentlemen.
So, click on the link, check out the sample tracks then get out there and recruit a few more backers so that you can get the whole album, on CD (CD is a pretty retro format for music now, right?!) for FREE!
Thanks again to every one of you for supporting me and making this book a reality. You guys are AMAZING!
Ps. Don't think for one minute that this is the only stretch goal - there are things happening that will blow your minds... ;-)
