'Revealing Craft' on Kickstarter


Have you ever heard of Kickstarter?

No me neither until recently when I read about a fab collaboration between Folksy and photographer India Hobson - Revealing Craft

If you are a regular reader of Mollie Makes you may have already seen some of India's photographic studies of designer-makers in their studios - this book contains much more of the same promising to 'tell the life behind the work of each of the thirteen designer-makers as well as India's narrative of her meeting with this people in their homes'

What is unique about this book is that it is, through Kickstarter, funded by your pledges. Folksy need to reach a goal of £6500 to pay for the 1st edition print run of Revealing Craft and they are asking for your 'pledges' - effectively pre-orders - in order to raise the money.  You can find out much much more about how it all works here

I have made my pledge for a signed and numbered copy of the book in a presentation sleeve. It is my Christmas present to myself and I very much hope that they reach their goal. I cannot wait to see the finished book.

There are, as I write, only 5 days left to reach the goal and just over £1000 left to raise.If you too want to be the proud owner of a piece of Folksy history why not hop over and make a pledge.

Everyone is keeping everything crossed they make it!!
