Help publish a book of photos from Gothenburg
Join me in funding the publication of this high quality photo book celebrating Gothenburg, Sweden’s second city, with a selection of my best photographs from two years of daily photo-blogging.
Hjälp mig att finansiera publiceringen av denna högkvalitativa fotobok som hyllar Göteborg, Sveriges andra stad, med ett urval av mina bästa foton från två års dagligt fotobloggande.
The photos on this page are all images from the blog GBG365 and photos I want to include in the photo book.
Book Description - English
My Gothenburg Days / Dagar i mitt Göteborg will be an attractive book that you will want to own and display at home, but also a book you will want to give as a present.
It will be a hardback book, landscape format (wider than tall) and 24.5 cm by 18 cm. It will have 180 pages and approximately 90 pictures. Most of the pictures will each be on its own page and the facing pages will be white with a short text in English and Swedish. At the back of the book will be a couple of pages listing the names of all the supporters.
I am aiming to print 2000 copies.

Bokbeskrivning - svenska
My Gothenburg Days / Dagar i mitt Göteborg kommer att bli en attraktiv bok som du kommer att vilja äga och visa hemma, men också en bok som du kommer att vilja ge bort som present.
Den blir en inbunden bok i liggande format (bredare än hög) och 24,5 cm x 18 cm. Den kommer att ha 180 sidor och cirka 90 bilder. De flesta av bilderna kommer att ligga på en egen sida, och motstående sidor blir vita med en kort text på engelska och svenska. I slutet av boken kommer det att finnas ett par sidor med en lista över alla er som har stöttat projektet.
Jag siktar på att trycka 2000 exemplar.

I started publishing the GBG365 website – “a daily photo from Gothenburg” – on 1st September 2012 and have continued without a break since then.
I took part in the PlanketGBG photo exhibition August 2013 with a display of seasonal photos from the blog.
In July 2014 I started plan My Gothenburg Days / Dagar i mitt Göteborg and to promote this campaign with a dedicated Facebook page. And in August 2014 I again took part in Planket, this time showing some of the photos I want to include in the book and promoting this campaign.
The start of the campaign is timed to fall just before the Gothenburg Book Fair (25th-28th September) where I will participate as a member of the Swedish indie authors association Egenutgivarna. The Egenutgivarna's stall is A03:50. It wil be possible at the Book Fair to see prints of some of the photos that will appear in the book.
On the morning of Friday 26th September I'll be presenting the book and the campaign at Litteraturhuset (near Esperantoplatsen) from 8.35 in the morning.This presentation will take the form of a 15 minute illustrated lecture.
On the morning of Saturday 27th September I'll be presenting the book and the campaign at the Egenutgivarna's stall A03:50 from 10.30 in the morning. This presentation will take the form of an interview (me being interviewed).
During the campaign I plan to be available in different places around Gothenburg to show the photos and talk about the book and the campaign. Venues to be announced here and on the dedicated My Gothenburg Days Facebook page and on the GBG365 website.
The campaign will run for 45 days until early in November.
Assuming the campaign is successful, I will begin designing the book in November.
If all goes well, the design will go to the printers in December, I’ll confirm the printer’s proof by the end of the month and the book will be printed in January.
Publication and the postage and delivery of the rewards should take place in January/February 2015.
