We just started new campaign, but with changes:
    - Firstly, and the main, we found the way to print small run of the book. And the book will be printed in any case (even if the campaign will not reach the goal).
    - And secondly, we changed the cover.
Full story, videos and photos from the book - on our campaign page:

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/roman-shevchenko-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.
