Pop-Up City Bloggers on Kickstarter

The blogging duo behind Pop-Up City hope to raise $10,000 for The Pop-Up City Book: City Making in a Fluid World. The 260-page book will contain 150 illustrated projects.

They plan to publish the finished book in April 2014. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“We, Jeroen Beekmans and Joop de Boer, are the brains and hearts of The Pop-Up City, an Amsterdam-based blog that showcases eye-opening ideas, concepts and trends that make a change in the city of today and tomorrow. On a daily basis, we write stories about individuals, enterprises, and cities all around the world that come up with refreshing ideas and solutions to deal with a permanent stage of change, ranging from urban hacks, modular hotels, and parasite cinemas to pop-up retail concepts, rooftop farms, and houses on wheels.”

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.
