Illustrator and writer Ilene Winn-Lederer plans to publish Notes From London: Above & Below in September. But she’s looking for funds to complete it.

As of today, the nationally published illustrator still needs about $2,300  toward her Kickstarter goal of $3,000. The project’s Kickstarter page is here.

The book is a 42-page “collection of annotated illustrations culled from journals carried on her travels [in London] between 2002 and 2009,” mostly whimsical interpretations of her experiences on the streets, done in her lush, earthy style. “It is a city whose streets, roundabouts, lanes and mews are lines in the map of human history,” she writes.

Last year, Winn-Lederer successfully Kickstarted her book An Illumination of Blessings, a collection of her “original illustrations and calligraphy in a unique interpretation of 36 blessings … chosen from among the many that have been composed in the Jewish tradition over the centuries.”

Her earlier works included Between Heaven & Earth: An Illuminated Torah Commentary, a contemporary take on the Jewish holy book. Here’s CP’s article on that 2009 book.

The Kickstarter campaign for Notes From London ends this Sunday.
