There is this guy. He’s an amazing artist. He wants to create a book comprised of images and very few words. He is like the cool opposite to a poet. He is the guy who let’s you see the poetry of the eye and feast on the poetry it inspires. Cause that is what artists do, they make you dream.
This guy makes me wish I had money. Lots of money. Cause then I would get to brag that I was part of making his dream a reality. I would get to claim I had something to do with getting his astonishing art out into the world. Where it does the best things. It makes dreams. It makes people content and happy. It makes me smile like I just learned a secret from a 4 year old who still believes that anything..freaking anything can happen. That is the kind of thing the world needs.
His name is Jed Alexander and he just added his dream to Kickstarter. How many people get the chance to say they helped make a dream happen? That they were part of something that became something else. That they got the chance to put art where it most enriches and inspires, in the hands of people who will one day claim this book made them want to dream.
You can spend as little as a dollar and come away feeling pretty damned awesome with the knowledge that Yeah, you did that. You made a book happen.
And that is pretty freaking poetic.
