Desktop Gremlins by David Landis

Tue, 30 Oct 2012

You may have spotted the new advert in the top right of the website. I've been a fan of David Landis' Desktop Gremlins for almost as long as they been in existence. Have a look at the site – I'm sure you'll enjoy them too. I love the simple elegance of the design and the skill of David's illustration.

Now David is planning a Desktop Gremlins book. If enough people join his Kickstarter campaign he'll be producing this lavishly illustrated, sumptuously printed 96 page book with twenty Desktop Gremlins for you to cut out and make.

He has set his funding goal for this campaign at the absolute minimum cost that covers professional printing, bonus reward tier manufacturing, Kickstarter & Amazon Payments fees, and mailing of all the final orders. This will allow him to sell a product at local book stores, book fairs and conferences. Proceeds raised from that will allow him to re-design www.DesktopGremlins.com into a sparkling-new website that will offer more free content then ever before as well as future books.

To be produced the book needs to reach its pledge goal by 18th November. I've made my pledge, hurry along to the Kickstarter site and help support this fantastic project!

    all the backers of this

    all the backers of this project will get a  special "backers only" paper gremlin there is a picture of this paper model on the link here

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1341118219/desktop-gremlins-vol-1-premium-papercraft-art-book/posts

    the project is about 70% funded we just need this last push to get to the goal so we can all have a fun book full of paper gremlins to make and enjoy

    and rob was thinking about doing a kick starter project too and im sure how this project does will influence his decision  so if we can get this project funded maybe we can get another book from rob

    but of course that is  robs choice whether or not to try his own kickstarter campaign
