Once upon a time…
Algy and his assistant met to discuss the production of his long-awaited series of fluffy children’s books, Tales from The Adventures of Algy.
There was just one wee problem: publishing projects cost money, and money is something which is very rarely seen in the West Highlands of Scotland… They agreed that it was essential to find some cash somewhere, to pay for the up-front costs. And so they decided to launch a special kind of rewards-based crowdfunding campaign, which will also act as Algy’s 2014 Christmas Gifts Market.
Algy is just waiting for the campaign to receive moderator approval, and then he will publish the link, so that you can buy his beautiful 2015 calendars, children’s jigsaw puzzles and mugs, as well as the more usual kind of “rewards” associated with funding a publishing project, such as signed copies of books and prints of the illustrations.
In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of Algy’s campaign video…
Algy is terrifically excited about all this, as he has never done anything like it before! He hopes that you will all share in his excitement :-)))
And if you haven’t got any money – or don’t want to spend it – please just wish Algy luck in this exciting new venture. Thank you xoxoxo
[The music included on Algy’s video soundtrack is the first two minutes of the famous Singin’ The Blues, recorded on the 78rpm Okeh label in 1927 by Frankie Trumbauer and his Orchestra, and featuring Bix Beiderbecke. The song was originally composed in 1920 or earlier, with the first known recordings released in 1920.]
