We are proud to be featured alongside more than 50 other creators in Toronto in the brand new Toronto Makes book. Here's what they have to say about their book:
When you support Toronto Makes, you support this collective of entrepreneurs, employees, families and local businesses. An exciting collective of Toronto makers reveal their long-term relationships with their craft in an artful coffee table book, brimming with gorgeous photography. Discover their personal stories through each unique entrepreneurial journey, process, and passion. Your support will help bring this project to life.
We have been working hard all year to bring you this ambitious project. We can't wait to share the insights, images and stories in a unique, 288+ page hardcover book and more.
The first step to make this book real is sharing the stories of these 50+ hand-picked makers. We're simply humbled to see talent and commitment of Toronto makers and what they offer the city! A lot of sweat and tears (of joy!) happen behind the scenes of book production - your support helps cover the cost of photography (50 profiles mean a lot of images), prop styling, writing, art direction, editing, printing, promotion and publishing.
There are so many stories to tell that we won't stop with only a book! We believe in old-fashioned communication: print, audio, and conversation. Once we get underway, backers can watch out for a candid podcast series (launching with the book) where makers will share the struggles and successes of creating their products. Inspiring stories of how they are building their businesses and channeling their creative talents. Interactive, expert maker panel discussions, a retail capsule collection and more are all part of what we are planning.
