Wonder What the $25,000 Kickstarter Budget is going to do?

If you are like some people, you might be wondering why we need $25,000. We need it to compensate for the campaign pre-kickstarter and post-kickstarter money that we have put out.

That amounts to about $12,500 and then from there we have to pay for the digitally scanned images, the pricey lawyer that advises us on copyright issues and of course the price to maintain social media and marketing campaigns.

We hope that people will want to see our finished idea.

It’s something that we have worked years for. We know that you might be confused as to what the website will be like when we are done. Don’t be. We will have a free site, meaning you can get on there and look it over, scroll and research. But we will request a fee for digital downloads.

Pulpimages.com right now is only a site that is sitting still, waiting for the day that we make that Kickstarter  campaign goal.

We encourage you to fund us today. Kickstarter is a 50/50 chance, and we have hope that even though we have 9 days left, we might make it. When you share our goals with your comic lover, pulp lover or history lover friends-we know that you are thinking of us. We want to be able to save this great treasure inside and out.

 

So if you have any questions please feel free to contact us. If you want to help, contact us! Share us and like us today!

Pulp Images Saving Science Fiction Robots One Damsel At A Time

A team of 5 NASA scientists bring their out of this world Savvy to saving American Pulp

 

Akron, OHIO- Pulp Images is gearing up on Kickstarter to preserve over 20,000 images from Pulp history. The group hopes to preserve not only the colored images, but also the inside cover of  black and white images as well. They have recently launched their Kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000 in order to fund a website, and digitally scan these images as well as restore them.

 

Pulp Images was created by a group of NASA engineers who have always had an affinity for science fiction pulp. The history of pulp has been rooted in Jules Vern, a legendary author and in the early magazines of the twentieth century. Pulp art is the illustrations from magazine covers published from the 1890’s to the 1960’s. These covers are slowly fading into history, and because of that the group was formed to save them.

 

Pulp images has been devoting years to this project, and have so far scanned many images on their own. With the use of Kickstarter, the company plans to start a new phase in the preservation of these important pieces of Americana.

 

Most Kickstarter campaigns operate under an all or nothing idea, so if Pulpimages.com doesn’t reach their goal of $25,000 the preservation will be stopped. To follow their project find them on Twitter (@Pulpimages) and Facebook.com/Pulpimages and spread the word on your social media networks. Consider trying to donate as little as $1 to start the project. If you want to donate more, you can be the first among your friends to be featured on a actual cover from Pulp Americana.

Back in the day there was a woman named Margaret Brundage, and what is she famous for? Causing the whole nation to utter that word “scandelous”. How? Well her covers on pulp image magazines were racy and explosive.

She was active in politics, and an independent woman living in the age when men were the only ones entitled to take care of business.

Wanna see why she was so racy?
