Hi there!

I would like to present you our project - Roman Shevchenko. My toys

Image

A book is dedicated to designer toys by various designers, from mass produced figures to single custom-made ones. The book is a collection of fantastic photographs taken by one of the most well-known Russian toy collector and toy photographer Roman Shevchenko, aka AlPred.
He passed away two years ago, but I think many people here know him. Especially because Coarse made Omen Fade in his honor.
Each photograph tells a little story and introduced a figure from a very special, different angle. This photographs motivate the others not just to collect designer toys, but to be creative while doing it.
Full story, videos and photos from the book - on our campaign page:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/roma ... my-toys--2

Specs:
  • Text language: Russian and English
    Hardcover
    21x26 cm (8.2 x 10.2 inches)
    320 pages
Please look and support.

What happened to this?

I received a refund, so I assume it wasn't successful, which is a real shame.
