NYC Pizza-Themed Coffee Table Book On Kickstarter

A group of New York City natives hope to raise $15,000 for their coffee table book, New York Pizza Project. The collaborators have visited more than 100 pizza shops throughout the five boroughs.

The contents of the book will feature photographs, interviews, and stories. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“A few years ago, the five of us were sitting around eating pizza and talking about the pizza shops we grew up in. Aside from the always heated debate about the best slice in New York, we found ourselves reminiscing about the little things — the Icees, the orange booths, the pizza guy who never smiles — stuff like that. We started discussing the idea of a book that encapsulates all of those little things we love about New York City pizza.”

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.
