The Crochet Coral Reef Project Publishing a Coffee Table Book

This just in from the IFF on their latest adventure!

"Eight years, five continents, and over 7000 contributors in the making, the Crochet Coral Reef project is ready for a book. Now at last we’ll have an explanation of all the scientific, mathematical and environmental concepts inherent in the project available in one place, along with a large selection of the beautiful photos we’ve taken of its many installations and exhibitions over the years. Very importantly, the book will celebrate ALL the people who have been involved in this collective aesthetic experiment. All 7000+ contributors to all the Crochet Reefs around the world will be named in the book in a specially designed chapter that will constitute an artwork in itself.

In order to fund the production of the book, we are pre-selling copies of the book via Kickstarter. Your contribution of $55 or more assures you a signed, numbered, first edition. We plan to deliver the books in October 2014. If you or a loved one appreciates this unique aesthetic fusion of marine biology, math, craft, and community art practice, support our Kickstarter campaign and order your copy now:

They say they may use some pictures from the Maine Reef and ALL of our contributors are supposed to be named in their book...... Should be an awesome book!
