Unfortunatley, the funding for my big coffee table book, Fiesta, fell through. So, I decided to take the project to the community for "crowd-funding."

I was orignially buiding out the funding project on Kickstarter.com, but I quickly discovered that they were not going to allow the flexibility I needed to work this project. The main deal-breaker was their rule preventing benefit to a non-profit, but there was also a rule preventing "bulk" sales of more than ten items in a pledge package.

I quickly found IndieGoGo.com to be a fine substitute and ported the entire site over. Now, here we are. Just a day and a half into the funing project, and I've already hit over 16% of the $20,000 goal. In reality, I'd really like to raise $30,000 to print enough books to make the project not just fasible but also viable.

Please visit http://celebratefiesta.com to learn more and to make a pledge. You'll get an amazing book in return!

UPDATE: The crowdfunding part of this project has closed as we did reach our goal. The book will be printed this spring, and it should be here in plenty of time for this year's main Fiesta events. You can still pre-order a book here.
