ďWhen I first travelled to Boston I was excited to walk The Freedom Trail. I became fascinated with Bostonís history and the dedication the City has shown in preserving its landmarks. Toward the end of my trip I searched for a Freedom Trail pop-up book to bring home. When I couldnít find one, I searched for any Boston pop up book. To my disappointment I found that there were no pop up books about Bostonís sites at all! After moving here, I began to create one.Ē
The campaign boasts exciting rewards including copies of the book, behind the scenes tours of famous Freedom Trail Sites, and limited edition artwork by Price.
ďThere is no other place in the United States where you can take in the rich history of Americaís Revolution than in Boston. The Freedom Trail Pop Up Book is a true labor of love which has helped me connect to my adopted city as well as explore my passion for paper arts.Ē View details about the campaign on ThePopUpBook.com or Kickstarter.com
