The Kickstarter for the book will launch on Tuesday, February 7, at 9am Pacific! I will send another email before so you won’t miss it, but you can also bookmark the Kickstarter page (although at this moment it is not particularly exciting).
There will also be a livestream at 11am Pacific (2pm east coast time, 7pm London time) the same day. I will be joined by Robin Rendle – a designer, typographer, and one of my favourite design thinkers – to talk about the book, the stories within, the keyboards I met along the way, and what the whole project means to me!
For those interested, we might also later go into the process of putting the book together and more details – I want to screen share some stuff and even perhaps try to assemble part of the book using my strange scripts.
If you’ve been following Robin’s newsletter, How not to make a book, you know how carefully he considers books, so it should be a fun conversation. I hope you can join us! Please come with questions – or even send them ahead of time!
Sign up to be reminded on YouTube, or just check shifthappens.site for the link on Tuesday!
This is all very intense and nerve racking. If the last few years were Shift Happens, these weeks definitely are much more like Caps Lock All The Time. I am nervous, but excited (and hopeful) to see what happens next week. And happy to imagine you might be joining me then.
