interview with Bible artist Keith Neely back in 2007. If not, check it out! Keith emailed me last week about a Kickstarter project he's started - Click above or read the details below:
At last there is a good possibility I’ll be able to go to press and print the very first NASB illustrated Bible. The project is the complete Bible and is Word for Word NASB text. (New American Standard Bible)
I say “a good possibility” because it is a “Kickstarter” project. (An Internet Site that funds creative projects.) If I FAIL to reach my goal amount within 30 days, I receive nothing. The minimal donation pledge is $65 and is not processed unless the goal amount is reached. The gift that you will receive, for your donation, is a copy of the book with your name printed in it as a contributor. (Note: The price of the complete NASB illustrated Bible on 2 CDs is $69.90 and the cost of the complete ICB illustrated Bible in 10 paperbacks is $99.50) So actually, you will simply be buying it in advance of the printing at a small discount.
I don’t think I have to tell you the importance of this FIRST edition being available to countless children all over this country who would never read a Bible on their own, let alone follow, understand, enjoy and remember what they read. Remember, ALL the other “comic book” Bibles are re-written “Stories” from the Bible. Ours is an actual and accurate Translation in graphic novel form.
If you don’t know of any children to give this Bible to yourself, please email this letter to everyone you can.
Here is the fastest way to see my project: Go to “Kickstarter.com” (Official site or Discover projects.) and in the Search Projects box type “NASB” , click in the picture that pops up and there you are. There are thousands of projects so mine could get lost unless I get some activity and move up.
If you have any questions, go to “Kickstarter Help Center”
Thank you so much for any involvement,
There's about 12 days left to raise the cash needed, so if you like the sound of this project head on over to Kickstarter.com I would be interested to know of any other kickstarter projects relating to children's illustrated Bibles.
