I had far too much fun backing random "that looks interesting/amusing" publishing projects on Kickstarter a few months ago, and the fruits are now falling into my letterbox. Yesterday's was this:

Hilariously obscene collection of Mr Bingo's favourites from his Hate Mail project - pay good money to a professional artist to have him draw a lovingly rendered insult on the back of an item from his collection of vintage postcards, and post it to you. Having done nearly a thousand of these, he then launched a Kickstarter to publish his favourites as a high quality art book. Whether or not you enjoy the contents depends very much on your sense of humour, but if it is your sort of thing, here it is in a physical object that's a work of art in itself. It's printed on heavy art paper, Smyth-sewn, clothbound casing, and tastefully stamped in gold foil with the title on the spine and a line drawing on the front cover reflecting the contents. That line drawing being of an octopus putting two fingers up at the world with all eight legs...

I added you to my reading page because we're the only people on LibraryThing who own this book. It should be much more popular!

Yes, I saw those and wondered if you'd lived around here. Happy book hunting!
