QBN seeks publisher

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

QBN.com‘s book project, A Better Tomorrow, is set to feature a host of new work from the site’s community and raise money for the Patrick O’Brien Foundation, the organisation set up to offer support to one of the site’s original editors (above, photographed by Timothy Saccenti) who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig‘s disease four years ago. But QBN now need a publisher…

The book hopes to paint a picture of the unique community that QBN has engendered since its inception in 2001 as Newstoday.com. The main aim of the project was to inspire donations – at $50 per book – to the Patrick O’Brien Foundation. O’Brien was one of the first editors of the site (as Transfatty) and was diagnosed with Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis (or Lou Gehrig’s disease) in May of 2005 at the age of 30. 

“We feel that the tie-in to Patrick – a long time QBN member – and his need for support is an opportune time to display the importance and power of the QBN community,” says Alistair Dance, a QBN contributor and founder of A Dance Studio.

The book features the work of established designers such as Andrew Townsend (Un.Titled), Michael C. Place (Build), Darren Firth (keepsmesane and wearitwithpride), Chuck Anderson (nopattern), Hellohikimori and many other up-and-coming designers.

Until recently, QBN had been working with a publisher (all artwork has been laid out and the book is more or less ready to go) but this partnership has now ended. Interested parties should contact QBN on publishing@abettertomorrowbook.com.

(The book also includes some of the best comments left by its users, such as wendell’s inspired advice on maintaining the love in a relationship).
