Losing Altitude

Losing Altitude is a collaborative art book project that will feature over 50 artists from around the world who work in a wide range of media. The book will feature threatened and endangered species of birds from all around the world!

The Kickstarter for this project can be found right here!

Rewards will include the book in both soft or hard cover, as well as postcards, acrylic charms, and a deck of playing cards featuring art from the book. There will also be a limited number of special incentives being offered by some of the participating artists, including a special bookplate, original art, jewelry, signed prints, and more!

Please support this project!

Membership to this group is now open to anyone- if you are interested in Losing Altitude, please feel free to join the group for updates and information!
Hello, hello! I have not been on dA at all for quite some time, and so I haven't been keeping this group updated...

If you haven't been following the Kickstarter, then you probably don't know but the books are finally in print! Right now I am working, slowly but surely, on fulfilling all of the Kickstarter orders. Once those are all out, I will make the remaining books available for purchase. If you like, you can see some (terrible cell phone photos) of all the books here:

Very exciting!

Hey! Is this group still active? The aim seems to be the same as for our group Endangered-Birds, namely art collection of threatened and endangered birds.
I'm really curious, how is this project going? =) really would love to see the result (the book)!

Sort of! I haven't really been on dA lately so this group has been somewhat neglected. However, the book is now complete- I got the shipment last month and have been working on getting orders out to Kickstarter backers.

That's nice! Good to hear that it is still ongoing =)
How did you pick the artists, if I may ask?

Yeah! I'm so thrilled to finally have an actual book, ha ha.

The artists were sort of self-picked! I contacted a number of artists to sort of get the ball rolling, but after that it was word of mouth and people coming to me. Basically you just had to ask and you were in. I sort of went with the idea that if you think your art is good enough for an art book, then it is! I think it helped to get a bigger variety of styles in the book, personally.

Any chance there's an end date in sight? I haven't heard from you guys in a while, and I was really excited about this book.

Hello! Sorry for the (very late!) reply! I haven't been on dA much. The book is currently completely (and taking up my entire living room). I'm shipping out books in rounds over my weekends. If you've already ordered a book it should arrive sometime soon. If not, I will be making it available for sale as soon as I've filled all the Kickstarter orders.

Hey! Sorry it took me so long to reply- my private life has been a bit of a mess lately. Anyway, I just posted an update here- So the short answer is no, and the long answer is hopefully I will have a new release date soon!

Oh forgot to ask.  Is there somewhere where people can pre-order the book?
