The final days to support 2dcloud's summer season
The Minneapolis micro-publishers current season makes the final push to print new books by Juliacks, Jaako Pallsvuo, Leif Goldberg and Xia Gordon.
Known for their beautifully printed, thoughtfully curated collections of standout creators, 2dcloud's summer collection hasn't soared to complete funding but is seeing an inspiring final push. Simon Hanselmann wrote a good natured, highly explicit comic trying to help inspire some people to take a chance on the books, emphasizing that the collection better get funded because he is due to have a book in the company's fall season. Tara Booth in collaboration with Hanselmann is donating the proceeds of some prints to the cause at her webstore, and current season artist Leif Goldberg has added shirts and screenprints as added rewards available to aid the cause.
This collection looks as thrilling as season's past, with Leif Goldberg's Lost in the Fun Zone a psychedelic ride through the unknown, Architecture of an Atom packaging nearly 300 pages of beautiful Juliacks creations in one book and Jaako Pallsvuo's Retreat looks like an exhilarating apocalyptic tale about a queer couple. 2dcloud's books represent viewpoints and creators worth your attention, even if you don't know them yet.
If you want to receive a beautiful package of books worth far more than the $50 pricetag, consider backing this project not only for the current books available but to help the future of the publisher itself, going through a serious move and changes while still holding it all together. I talked in depth about the books from the spring season here and have followed the Kickstarter progress of the summer season, where things are finally looking attainable in the final handful of days.
