Litographs Crowdfunds For World’s Longest Literary Tattoo Chain Project

Litographs, a company that produces book-inspired art pieces, has raised more than $25,000 on Kickstarter to launch a line of temporary literary tattoos. These funds will be used for the tattoo product launch and to organize the “World’s Longest Tattoo Chain.”

The first 2,500 supporters will be sent a temporary tattoo that features a line from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; their pictures will help to form the chain. Backers 2,501 to 5,000 will receive a tattoo featuring a line from Through the Looking Glass!. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“We have taken the entirety of Lewis Carroll’s most universally-loved book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and broken it into 2,500* individually designed temporary tattoos. Our goal is to recreate this iconic novel by showcasing every single word on the skin of 2,500* Kickstarter backers – in other words, YOU.”

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.
