Thanks to the combined support of 200 of you, the reprint is definitely going ahead. We surpassed our $15,000 minimum and are currently surging towards $17,000. Joining us on this project is no longer a bet — it's a sure thing.
We are stunned by your generous support and enthusiasm and are eternally thankful to everybody who has pledged on the Art Space Tokyo Kickstarter page. Truly, we did not expect such strong a response!
That said, there are still 16 days left in this pledging round. Meaning 16 days left to join us in seeing how far we can push this project. 16 days left to get your name in the book as a backer. 16 days left to pick up a limited edition Japanese cloth print or beautiful Takahashi Nobumasa original print.
All money raised goes towards expanding the hardcover print run and for funding the iPad edition.
If you are wondering about whether to join in or not, please do!
We are planning to print the book in May and ship it in June.
A PUBLISHING FIRST
Art Space Tokyo is collaborating with Kickstarter, an up-and-coming internet startup, to conduct an experiment in community-funded publishing.
Art Space Tokyo is a beautifully produced hardcover guide to the Tokyo contemporary art world. This 272-page book introduces twelve of the city's most architecturally and historically distinctive galleries and museums through interviews, essays, maps and illustrations.
The book features detailed two-color maps, dozens of illustrations, a sewn in bookmark and a two-color silk-screened cloth cover.
Its original print-run of 1,500 copies has been sold out for more than a year. However, demand has remained very high, so we bought back the publishing rights and are independently reprinting and producing it ourselves.
Secure your copy of the limited reprint here: http://cmod.me/ast_kick. By pre-ordering on this Kickstarter page you are giving us invaluable support to continue pushing forward on this project.
The money raised from these pre-sales will fund the extended hardcover print run and also a beautiful iPad edition with additional content.
The book will be reprinted in May and we're aiming to ship out them in June.
By contributing, you take an active part in the publishing process and help define the trajectory of niche cultural projects such as ours.

Thank you in advance for your support.
Warm greetings from Tokyo and New York,
