August Update

Hi Everyone,

 

Just a quick update on progress for A Guide to Modernism in Metro-Land. We are now at over 70% towards our total, with 500+ backers, so we are getting closer and closer! Thanks again to everyone who has pledges and also spread the word on social media.

 

In terms of the putting the book together,I am nearly finished visiting all the extra buildings I wanted to add, recently visiting Richmond, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Next comes the hardest part, deciding which buildings to keep and which to cut. The good news is that there should be around 50 extra buildings in the book, that are not on the website.

 

Apart from the book, I will be holding some tours for Open House London in Stanmore https://openhouselondon.open-city.org.uk/listings/6547 and for the 20th Century Society in Wembley https://secure.c20society.org.uk/Default.aspx?tabid=62&EventId=600 Hope to see you there!

 

As I always say in every update, 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 as ever for your overwhelming support and I look forward to sending you A Guide to Modernism in Metro-Land once we reach the target.

 

Josh Abbott
