April Update

Hello Everyone,

 

I just wanted to give you a brief update on our crowdfunding campaign for A Guide to Modernism in Metro-Land. We are currently at 35% towards our total with over 315 backers! So we are over a third of the way there, thank you for your pledges and your support.

 

Once again, if there is anyone you know who might be interested please send them the link for pledging https://unbound.com/books/a-guide-to-modernism-in-metro-land/ Also, if you could let people know about the project on your social media platforms, we would also be very grateful.

 

In terms of putting the book together, those of you who follow us on twitter (@mod_in_metro) will have seen I have been visiting various places, including Hounslow, Hillingdon, Enfield and Ealing, searching for the suburbs modernist jewels. There are more excursions planned, with visits to Harrow, Richmond, Watford and Buckinghamshire to come soon. The project has also been featured in various places, including the White Noise website, the Harrow Times newspaper, and various Local Historical Society newsletters. If you know of any outlet that you think would be interested in our project please let them know.

 

Lastly don’t forget you can upgrade your pledge or even add a donation to the fund. To do so, just log in to your Unbound account and next to your pledge for The Guide there will be a green Upgrade/Donate button.

 

Thank you once again for your support and we look forward to sending you A Guide to Modernism in Metro-Land once we reach the target.
