By Hand

A new magazine is in the works by the folks at Juniper Moon Farm.  It is called By Hand and will cover all sorts of things that are created, well, by hand.  I'm not connected with the project in any way except I think it is a good idea and made a Kickstarter donation to help.

Kickstarter is a process by which individuals raise money to get their projects, well, kick started.  It's another good idea.  It benefits the donor and the receiver.  The donor gets something they like that they wouldn't otherwise get.  In the case of By Hand, it ranges from a temporary tattoo to guest editing an issue of the magazine.  The receiver gets the funding they're seeking plus the knowlege that there's a solid interest in their project.  I don't think By Hand has to worry.  Their Kickstarter campaign was launched earlier today and they were around 70% funded a little while ago.
