Funding & Support

Kickstarter backers and friends of Aerial Bold. We ♡ you!

When the Aerial Bold project was first funded on Kickstarter in November 2014, Penguin Random House took the opportunity to imagine a new alphabet book composed of aerial imagery and reached out to us. Over the next year, we worked together with the Penguin team to design and develop the story behind the ABC: The Alphabet from the Sky.

The hardcover book was publish in September 2016 and the board book in this post in March 2020.

(Oh no! The book is now out of print!)
