Hidden Parks of Paris Book on Kickstarter

Do you have a favorite park in Paris? No matter where you live, there’s a whole travel book that will help you explore them.

Collaborators Gregory Ross and Julian Darius hope to raise $5,500 on Kickstarter to produce the 2014 edition of their travel book, Hidden Parks of Paris. We’ve embedded a video about the project above, complete with lots of cute kids. Here’s more about the project:

“The Parisians have a wonderful secret. The artists who paint in the Marais, the businessmen who catch the Metro to work, the college students who walk to class all share these hidden treasures. These venerable parks, these uncovered parks and gardens and squares of Paris are growing in number and size every year. A quarter of Paris is adorned in green, crowning it the greenest city in Europe.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
