Funding unsuccessful

It brings us sadness to report that we have failed to reach the funding target to bring Susie Leiper’s exceptional edition of The Living Mountain to life in offset-printed form. We continue to believe in the project, and in Susie, and truly hope that there might be a way to make this a reality someday.

Susie writes,

We have not reached the summit. However, for Nan Shepherd, the plateau was ‘the true summit’. All you generous backers, and many new acquaintances whom I met only by spreading the word, have been on the plateau with me. As have the team at Thames & Hudson who truly believed in the book. The original may one day enter an institution and you will see it there, or somebody may decide to publish it in the future. In the meantime, heartfelt thanks to you all. ‘The thing to be known grows with the knowing.’ 

All pledges will be refunded today and will return to your methods of payment in the next few days. In the meantime, we’d like to thank you again for your support.
