Hi! Welcome to the brand new project from the creators of The Book The Ultimate Guide to Rebuilding a Civilization.
Sometimes, people didn’t invent things just to stay alive. Sometimes, life wasn’t all about worrying where to find food or a place to sleep. Back then, our minds were free to think about bigger things. Instead of looking down, we looked up at the stars. We made up stories and myths, creating characters that later became part of movies and video games. We enjoyed simple things like sunsets and dancing in the rain. We climbed mountains, ran fast, and tried different activities that made us who we are.
Imagine if there are intelligent beings in the Universe. Wouldn’t you want to know what makes humanity special? What did people on Earth think about, dream about, and believe in? To reflect these questions, we decided to make a new book “The Anthem to Humankind.” This book will gather all the important cultural artifacts that make us who we are.
Making an encyclopedia with everyone’s opinions is impossible. So, in our new book, an author will tell the story from their point of view.
This is the story of Noah Kaplan, the last surviving earthling, who miraculously escaped the explosion of our planet. We find him flying in an alien ship into the unknown. To keep himself sane and handle loneliness and sadness he decides to write the entire world and all the human highlights he can remember into a hybrid of diary and encyclopedia.
And despite the fact that he’s absolutely the last surviving earthling, his story isn’t all tragedy. Plenty of nostalgia, sure, but even out in intergalactic darkness, there are glimmers of hope…but we can’t give too much away, now, can we?
This is a rare opportunity to experience nostalgia not for the past, but for the present moment. To think about what we truly value, what we can be proud of on a cosmic scale, and what we should be grateful for before it’s gone.
As of November 14th, this project has raised $177,000 of their $24,456 goal. This project has 20 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $69, you will get one artbook. For a pledge of $111, you will get one artbook and giftbox. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thebookthebook/anthem-to-humankind?
