Speaking of crowd funding

I recently funded Tania De Rozario‘s latest book arts project: Leaving: Tutorials on How & When, a 100-edition artist book, housing the poem of the same name. 

The publication will feature French-folded pages, folded and bound by hand; reprinted illustrations by the artist that run over folded edges; and a charm bookmark bound into the spine of the book. The full poem is previously unpublished in print and can be found here.

Tania is an artist, writer, and curator interested in issues of gender and sexuality. Co-founder of EtiquetteSG, she is the author of Tender Delirium (Math Paper Press, 2013) and was the 2011 winner of the NAC-SPH Golden Point Award for English Poetry. She is currently penning her second full-length book, And The Walls Come Crumbling Down.

Tania is an alumna of Hedgebrook (USA) and Sangam House (India), and is an Associate Artist with The Substation (Singapore), where she is currently working on Making Trouble, a research project documenting links between activism and visual arts in post-2000 Singapore.

As I told Tania after funding her venture, “I can’t resist a handmade book!” A single copy of the book is US$27.00 and all funders will receive their books in November.
