Everything is sent !
9 days ago – Tue, Jun 30, 2020 at 09:33:44 AM

I hope you are fine and healthy. I am pleased to say that today I send all your pledges! What a great feeling after all these strange weeks.

Important: everything took longer than usual. I post orders from my shop for about a month now, and delays are multiplied by 3! A package took 10 days in Europe when it should take 4, and USA are the most complicated we delay from 4 to 5 weeks. So please be patient. 

Behind the scene

It was fun to do the postcards set turning around the family table! 


This is the french delivery service I used to send your rewards. I use your Kickstarter/Backerkit email so you should get a tracking number from them. If you get at least one poster with your pledge, it is sent in a large cardboard envelope, so it won't fit your mailbox, so well follow the tracking. You can contact Anaïs at for any question, but for now, just wait some days. 

20% off

To thank you I offer you 20% off, you just need to use thankyou20 coupon at checkout at (for a minimum order of 20€). 

Thanks again for your support.

Sending first posters and printing the postcards
about 1 month ago – Wed, May 27, 2020 at 10:31:12 AM

I hope you are fine and safe. Lockdown is over now in France and shops are open again, if you were a mask! The restaurants and bars will be the next step. The good thing is that the printer of the project is back in business too. The deliveries are also back to normal even if they are longer than usual.

I get a test print of the posters and I am really pleased with it. I will send these to some bakers to see how long it takes and if the protection work without trouble. I will send the poster in large envelopes, not in tubes, to not roll them as the paper is really heavy.

On the other hand, I will print all the posters in the coming weeks, as well as the postcards. For the postcards, I found a set of old cards, and I scan the back to have them on my cards. I will leave the stamps and the messages as they are. They were all sent and written between 1910 and 1920... 

Thanks again for your support and patience. 


Stay Home / Stay Safe
3 months ago – Sat, Mar 28, 2020 at 03:25:15 AM

I hope you are safe. If like me you support other Kickstarter projects, you get a lot of messages from creators on how the actual situation impacts us.  I am staying at home for 12 days now and France government just asks us to stay inside for another 2 weeks starting on Tuesday, so until April 15th. The important is to no spread this, stay strong.

I do not know when I can produce and send the posters and postcards but I am sure you understand. I will keep you updated when we can go back to our normal lives. 



Survey are coming with Backerkit
4 months ago – Sat, Feb 29, 2020 at 04:17:51 PM

You may already get it, but I want to let you know the Backerit survey is sent. It should look like this!

 If you do not have it, please check your spam folder! With it, you can finalize your order and you can choose your posters. You can also add items if you want to! Contact me if you have any question. 

Thanks again for support.


Survey coming soon with Backerkit / First samples / New format
5 months ago – Sat, Feb 22, 2020 at 03:05:40 PM

I just get the confirmation from Kickstarter that the funds are on their way! So I am working on the Backerkit survey that you should have next week to finalize your order. I received samples and they are really great, I am so pleased with the details and paper quality! I will also propose a new format: A5 size!

So more is coming but for now pictures of the samples!  


I just have to support this book project: At the end of the 19th century, popular science books were published to show the world the advances of the industrial revolution. A special kind of book was the science atlas. One of those, completely forgotten and of which there are only a few copies left in the world, was created in Spain in 1889.
