The Hushkit Book of Warplanes
« on: July 13, 2021, 05:41:16 pm »
Well known alternative aviation site Hushkit is producing a book. It looks pretty good: Hushkit is both well informed and amusing and certainly no stranger to whiffery. Illustrations are by the excellent Andy Godfrey.

The book is being produced on a crowd-funding basis via the Unbound site. The idea is that you pledge money up front, which enables the book to be produced, and if it goes wrong for some reason Unbound ensure that you get your money back. It's already fully funded, so it should definitely be published: it's currently undergoing rounds of editing. I've supported books via Unbound before and had no problem.

There are various tiers of support which get you various rewards in addition to the basic book. The lowest tiers of support are 12 for an ebook or 24 (plus shipping) for a hardback, which gets you your name on the supporter list in the back of the book (I've ordered a hardback). Pay more and you get more goodies/perks. Full details on the Unbound page:

Teasers for the artwork:

"We thank you, but this diversion is not true. Things never happened thus."

"Oh, but it IS true. Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are
the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."
