Taking the Lane Quarterly Journal Featured on Kickstarter

The writers behind the Taking the Lane quarterly journal will examine bicycling and natural disasters. They have raised more than $2,000 for their project on Kickstarter. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

The ninth volume of this publication series will be illustrated by nature artist Katura Reynolds. The journal will also include instructional information with answers to questions such as, “How do you make an emergency preparedness plan when your primary vehicle is a bicycle?” and “Can a bike be a viable farm vehicle?”

Here’s more about the project: “One contributor happened on the scene of a small disaster and found she was able to help. Another navigated a health crisis in her car-free family by bike. Others report on the aftermaths of floods and storms that have affected entire regions. Another examines her family’s response to the economic crisis in Greece.”

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.
