We have created a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise the funds needed to make the 2nd edition of the book. Its been live for almost a day and we have already had lots of great support. Please take a look at the campaign by clicking on the link below, and share it with as many of you friend and colleagues as possible.
COSMIC SURGERY ON KICKSTARTER
In the process of producing the first limited edition pop-up book, science writer Piers Bizony and designer Emily Macaulay joined the Cosmic Surgery team to help introduce a narrative background, layout and unique construction. This second edition wants to expand on those ideas. It will be a photo book set in a fictional, not too distant future, at a point where “intelligent materials” are just about to transform the world of cosmetic surgery.
The book will have a hardcover printed and foil embossed. It will be 190x240mm (slightly smaller than A4) and contain 48 pages filled with the original portraits and a few new ones that haven’t been displayed before. There will also be a number of smaller booklets inside, containing the written content. And finally the book will include a pop-up portrait and a fold out one which will be attached in the UK by our trusted team of pop-up makers, meaning this book has all the care and attention to detail that went in to first 10.
There are many different rewards available on the Kickstarter campaign. If you wanted to support the project but didn’t want to buy the book just yet you can pledge on a postcard pack and receive 5 postcard sized prints. Or if you wanted to splash out and not just own the book, you can also buy a print, a workshop, or commission your own Cosmic Surgery portrait.
