Kickstarter Updates

AMAZING!

The "Creating Origami" Kickstarter project reached 100% funding in 6 hours and is currently nearing 400% after less than two days. It has been such a buzz of activity here at Lapin Publishing -- It feels like 1995 all over again. I can't express how touched I feel by your support.

Thanks to your contributions you can count on a Kindle conversion at some point in the future, an enhanced model menu and hopefully, delivery of the book within weeks rather than months. Read more about AMAZING!

Hey Everyone,

I just wanting to get a quick update out to everyone to keep you informed on what’s going on here at Lapin. First and foremost THANK YOU for all of the support and encouragement. We’ve gotten so many good ideas from everyone and are really appreciating the feedback. It feels so good that people are excited about the book and we are scrambling to make sure we give back to you as quickly and generously as you are giving to us.

A Sense of Community

Hey all,

First of all, thanks and WOW. Seriously.

One of the most amazing things about the campaign to date has been the immense support that has occurred around it, people from all over the world wanting to help out and offering their own particular skills and passion. It reminds me what a loving and sweet community of people there has always been around origami and how universal that community is internationally. Read more about A Sense of Community

Hey all!

What a week it's been... so much motion and movement in the campaign. Things have picked up again and it's all thanks to your continued support around tweeting, liking and pinning the word around!

The reaction to the Six Intersecting Pentagrams has been SO positive that It was my intention to post a new set of diagrams for a brand new (sort of) model that I discovered Wednesday... but after another 12 hour day here at "Lapin Headquarters" I think it's better to call it a day and return to the task fresh and first thing in the morning.

Diagrams for "Simple Dragon" ... and a stretch goal

I've been playing with the idea of doing a stretch goal for a while so here it is.  Last Wednesday I was speaking the translator in Japan via skype and while he is basically volunteering his services out of support for the effort (and with hopes that in time some money will be made back) it seems that even a down-payment for the Japanese/French translations would be in the neighborhood of $2k-$3k just to support the expenses that will come up in the translation process.

Mooser's Train, Stamm's Dragon, Stretch Goal 4 and "Add $20 to any pledge for an extra book!"

About halfway through the project I was wishing I’d made it shorter ‘cause we’d reached our goal so fast – but now that there’s only FOUR DAYS LEFT and I’m wishing I had another week.  There is SO much going on here backstage and I’m not even sure how to relay it… without writing a whole novel.  Read more about Mooser's Train, Stamm's Dragon, Stretch Goal 4 and "Add $20 to any pledge for an extra book!"

Wow, y'all do fast work - The NEXT stretch goal and the "Evangalists' Challenge"

As I write this we are just $100 away from our stretch goal of $12500... INCREDIBLE!  Read more about Wow, y'all do fast work - The NEXT stretch goal and the "Evangalists' Challenge"

Tee Shirts, Extra Books and bringing this "Train in for a Landing!"

As we're nearing the end of our campaign I feel myself finally coming to a place of stillness.  It's been quite a ride going along with the ups and downs and ebbs and flows of the process.  For a week now every corner I'd turn in the campaign I'd keep thinking "this is the last one..."  And then there are more, and more.  Read more about Tee Shirts, Extra Books and bringing this "Train in for a Landing!"
