Help "Watlington Folk" get into Print!

by Nicola Schafer in Watlington, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

All funds, after publishing costs, from this crowdfunder will go towards putting on the Exhibition. Any surplus will go to Watlington Climate Action Group.


Over the past four years I've created over fifty "Watlington Folk" portraits. This has resulted in a collection of images and stories which capture the essence of our town and the experience of living here.

I now plan to publish these portraits and stories in book form!

This crowdfunder will help meet the minimum order quantities for the print run and help mount the accompanying Exhibition. 

A community to be proud of

It is our community that has created this book. From each of these fascinating personal stories, one thing has stood out: it's the people that live here that make our community so special.

A book for keeps

This book is a small bit of history. It documents people's memories of the town in the past, and what it is like now - an inspiration for today and a time capsule for future generations.

Looking good!

This book will be the complete collection of all the interviews so far. It'll be A4 size and around 128 pages long, with a photo portrait on one page and the story on the facing page. Printed on 170gsm weight silk paper, it will stand the test of time with its hardback, full colour gloss cover.

Please help

Please help make this a reality - and secure your copy - by choosing to pre-order your book via the rewards!

Pre-ordered books are available at five pounds off the Recommended Retail Price, and your name will appear on our Big Page of Thanks in the book as someone who helped make this happen :)
 

There's an exhibition too!

In September, The Granary will be exhibiting the Watlington Folk portraits on their walls. Proceeds from this crowdfunder will help pay for the 10 x 15 inch prints which will cover all available wall space and bring together all the portraits into one, unique exhibition. Do come and have a coffee, surrounded by Watlington Folk!

By the community, for the community.

After the cost of the books, any surplus generated by this crowdfunder will go towards putting on the Exhibition, and any further surplus will be donated to Watlington Climate Action Group.


Please share!

Thank you for your support and please share with anyone who has an interest in Watlington and the people that live here :)

Note: If you'd like more than one copy of the book (Birthday gift? Christmas present?) I have set it up so that you can choose up to three books in one pledge. If you require more than that, please make a new pledge.
