Dear Friends of West of West,
Thanks to your generosity and support we are over 4/5 of the way towards our [huge, Unbound certainly don't believe in skimping on qaulity] total. Another 19% and we can push the book towards the printer. One of the most important factors of this final push to get to our total is getting the project "out there". We are both wary of asking anything more of you since you have already been so supportive, but *if* you felt like sharing this page again on social media or with anyone you know who would be interested it would be hugely appreciated and may well help us clear the final money hillock [there's a reason Laura Barton is incharge of the prose..].
But either way, we are so grateful for your help and very much look forward to being able to deliver the book and all the pledges.
Very best, Sarah and Laura
PS - Apropos of nothing other than a longing for better weather and another example of the two of us teaming up here's a link to an essay we did for the Guardian on the hottest and shortest night of the year last summer: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2017/jun/22/a-hot-summer-night-in-london-photo-essay
