The People of Burning Man Book Published Via Grassroots Efforts

In an amazing example of crowdfunding, The People of Burning Man hardcover book has just been self-published due to the collective efforts of many investors worldwide.

Considered a book too controversial to print via traditional book publishers, photographer Julian Cash launched a grassroots book publishing Kickstarter fundraising campaign at the beginning of 2011 to let the people decide if it should be printed. They spoke loud and clear by overfunding the book’s production costs by over $11k by the campaign’s end. When we first posted about the campaign in January 2011, the book was still far from its goal, but just over a week later, it was 100% funded.
