Kickstarter sees a range of projects, from established companies looking to fund specific projects to start-ups seeking their first big break. A fresh campaign from a book publisher falls into the former category, with a company looking to take its French business international.
Third Editions Books is a publisher founded in 2015 by Nicolas Courcier and Mehdi El Kanafi, with a focus on books about games. The duo have their names credited on a range of publications, and under the Third Editions Books label have published three premium hardcover texts in French - one focused on Final Fantasy VII, one called Dark Souls: Beyond Death, and another called Zelda: Archive of a Legendary Saga. These are the texts they want to translate professionally into English, with the US market a particular target. The pitch video is below.
At the time of writing the fundraising campaign has raised around €20,000 of its €100,000 goal, though it's still early and it has 28 days left to run.
