In December, 2012 a Kickstarter campaign was undertaken in order to fund a limited edition production of 25 copies of my first monograph, The Condition.
I wanted to create a book that was not only a piece of art unto itself but also a representation of the idea behind this series, therefore the process of making the images needed to inform the style of the publication. A tactile experience in producing and interacting with the book was central to how it needed to be designed and created. As a result, each book was individually printed, collated and sewn into an open-spine publication and presented in a hand made cloth-covered slipcase, taking well over 10 hours to make each edition.
Due to the success of this campaign, and other associated funding, over $10,000 was secured from approx.100 backers. A list of all Project Participants can be found here.
