    I saved each one individually, now it's a 'highlight'.

    Also they aren't all there because some are at RaD Towers.

    I guess I have to be on instagram and follow you to see these because I can't see any covers in that stream of pics. Going through the pics is glorious though.

    Can they use this instead of Kickstarter?
    https://www.patreon.com

    N.B. I have NO idea whether this is applicable. I've seen few social media 'stars' link to it. Maybe it's a way of generating the revenue without the punitive deadline.

    (Maybe. I know nothing about it all).

    If anything, the Kickstarter campaign should give an idea of who is willing to spend and how much.

    Patreon wouldn't work for this Les, it's more for regular content production, such as a YT channel or tutorial site, whereas this is a one-off - despite it needing 6 months of work.

    It's already been a couple of years' work, from when TLB 'released' his archive to those guys. It's a full-time job organise such a ridiculous amount of content. It's not just the skate photos, it's everything. Considering they're doing it all themselves from scratch, it really is a bargain. Making the actual book is a whole other thing, and having all this stuff in one place is just the beginning.

    Was there any talk of an exhibition? That'd be good

    I'm sure they just had one in Berlin? Maybe they could do a few around the UK for a small fee to get in, that would help towards the book being made, a lot of skate shops can cater for pop up for art shows on an evening and the like (I'm sure they wouldn't charge to help too), so it wouldn't be as hard as you'd think to get something sorted.

    Honestly, that would cost more to organise and run than it could ever hope to make.

    They could always treat it as a proper business and apply for a loan to make it happen. Kickstarter should help with that even though it failed - they have an idea of what people are wiling to pay and the level of demand.

    Personally I think trying to sell the book in advance at full price is a bit off. Nobody does that. But if they could say the book will be £50 and you can pre-order for £40 that would be cool. If they can demonstrate to the bank that half the print-run can be pre-sold at £40 and then come up with a plan to get the rest into bookstores and skate shops or to a UK distro at trade price it could probably be made to happen.

    Not sure what the money they were kickstarting was actually for though. Perhaps it's not to produce the book but just to pay for the time involved in pulling it together - which would explain why they couldn't go for a loan. No bank will lend money for the development phase because without a physical product they haven't got any collateral to recall if things go tits up.

    Your money was never taken.

    iirc, Kickstarter puts a hold on your card saying we're planning to take £80 from this card within x amount of time, so it can look like the money has been spent. If funding of a project fails, the hold is released and no money is or has been taken and your available balance would return to normal.
