One of the pieces of literature available at the Tom Bishop Chicago International Show was this letter from Henry Kupjack who is attempting to raise funds through the arts project fundraising website Kickstarter. The expected cost of publishing the book is $100,000.
You can be involved in the project for a donation as little as $1.00 or, if you win the lottery, you could donate the entire $100,000. VBG Much like a PBS fundraiser, there are 'gifts' for various levels of donation. The difference with Kickstarter is that your donation isn't processed until the full goal is reached.
So far, almost $6,000 has been pledged BUT there are only 14 days left in the campaign.

I have made a $50.00 donation and if the project comes together, I'll receive a soft-cover copy of the book.
This is a really important project to me. I think that the Kupjack legacy deserves to be preserved in a book as opposed to piecemeal recognition in miniature magazines.
But I, like so many miniaturists, don't have much disposable income. So I really welcome the opportunity to be part of this.
Oh, my, can you just imagine being able to donate $500 and getting a limited edition Kupjack piece?
We all have our 'miniature money' priorities and if this is not one of your choices or abilities, I totally recognize that.
But it is important to me to let you know that the option is there.
