Around the World with 80 Artists!

Edit 2/15/17: The Kickstarter campaign did not get funded, if you would like to help out this project please visit their new Indigogo campaign. Thanks you:)

Hi friends! I wanted to pop in today to let you know about a fun project put together by Mahe Zehra Husain from The Creative Art Academy. I have enjoyed her blog and ebooks for years and now she has teamed up with 80 artists from around the world to bring you a printed book packed full of projects and techniques.

In order for her book to become a reality she is funding it through kickstarter and plans to have paper copies shipped by Christmas. Please check out her Kickstarter page for more info.

As you probably know the publishing world is shrinking and the amount of truly inspiring craft books being published is dwindling.  As a bonus 20% of the proceeds from this project will go to The Malala Fund to help girls gain an education all over the world. Not only do you benefit from the art education in this book but you are helping girls get an education too!

    • I think it will, it is off to a great start already:) The auther has been writing and selling ebooks for years so she has a good foundation to make a printed book happen.

    • Hi Martha! Mahe here. Just wanted to let you know we are live again (as you may be able to tell I’m determined to make this book a reality) – we were able to negotiate a smaller run on books with the press and so we need 40% less to make the book a reality. I just wanted to let you know we’re up at bit.ly/80artists – please do consider backing us and sharing this campaign with family and friends. Thank you!

  3. I’m in! Thanks for telling us about this, Lindsay! I am so glad to have a part in this project. I hate that there is such a lack of art/crafting books that are not just all about promoting specific products! I like that this is so many artists! They are using what is available to them, and telling us what they’re using, but they don’t seem to be just the product placement
    variety.

    • wonderful! That is what is nice about independanly funded projects like this, they so not need to depend on brand sponsorships to make it publishable. I am sure you will enjoy it!

  5. Lindsay, I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart that you are so kindly helping promote this book. I am one of the 80 contributing artists in this book and know many of the other contributors personally. I want to reaffirm that when Mahe approached all of us with her idea that I and everyone else was so eager to volunteer and participate. Yes, we are doing this completely of our own will and without any commercial influence. We believe in creativity being an active and important aspect of life and that it should be available to everyone. Thank you and your viewers for all the support.
