The past 45 days have been a rollercoaster of emotions—filled with hope, dread, and tireless social media promotion, but in the end, our efforts paid off with a fully funded campaign! We are so very thankful to Barney, his friends, family, and community for believing in this project and pledging to buy a book. The best part of running the campaign was hearing from the many people who have been positively impacted by the life and work of this gracious man! In return, we pledge to deliver a beautifully produced book that exhibits Barney's work in ink and paper, and will last a lifetime.
