"The Mandolin - a history" on Kickstarter

Postby Graham McDonald » Fri Jul 24, 2015 10:30 pm

Hello from Australia

For the past several years I have been working on a book about the history of mandolins called The Mandolin - a history. It is just about ready for the printers and to pay for the printing I have launched a Kickstarter project. I need to sell around 500 copies to pay for the printing which is the reason for using Kickstarter. It will be published in full colour, with over 400 pages and more than 450 illustrations (mostly photos of mandolins), in an 8" x 10" softcover, perfect bound book. The pre-ordered copies will be mailed out directly from the printer (who is in Michigan) directly they roll off the press. The Kickstarter link is https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/grahamkmcdonald/the-mandolin-a-history

It is a book about the instruments themselves, and the people who have made them, rather than the music played on them. There are a couple of draft chapters and the Table of Contents available as pdf downloads from my website - http://www.mcdonaldstrings.com, or you can go directly to Kickstarter page where there are links as well. Please feel free to spread the word on other instrument forums and social media.

It is all a bit exciting after six years work.
