Happy holidays to all of you! We hope that you’re all enjoying yourselves with friends and family.
We’ve been working away on the book and we’re really excited about how it’s coming along.
A friend of ours, Chris Nosenzo, recently featured us in his new bi-weekly publication, Packet. Our series, 21 Beds, has been featured in Issue #002.
You can buy the issue here: http://packetbiweekly.bigcartel.com/product/packet-issue-002
Or view the Packet blog: http://packet-biweekly.com/

In other big news, we’ve officially teamed up with an amazing friend and extremely talented designer, Nicole Killian, to design the cover and a few things inside the book. We’re so excited and feel extremely privileged to work with Nicole and we can’t wait to move closer to matching a “face” with our book.
You can see Nicole’s work here: http://www.nylondip.com/
We leave you with our Eurail passes which accompanied us on our trip and served as our ticket to at least 24 train stations along the way as well as a preview of our series in Packet.

Check out this great write-up about our Kickstarter on Autostraddle! $844 to go!
Thank you again to all of you who have helped us out! We’re getting there!
First thing’s first: WE ADDED A NEW REWARD! $125.00!
Now if you pledge $125, you’ll get a signed 8”x10” print from each of us!
If you’re interested and have already pledged, you can increase your pledge to $125 and receive the two 8”x10”s, the book, and everything before it!
Also, for our last week of funding, we’re going to be giving something away each day to one person who pledges $75 or more!
So, for everyone who pledges $75 or more today, we’ll put your name in the drawing for a chance to get:
An 8”x10” from each of us BEFORE WE LEAVE FOR OUR TRIP!
(This means that you’ll receive two prints of recent work from both of us!)
And remember, we still need your help spreading the word and our next goal is to get $10 from 100 people! So PLEASE post our link on Facebook and tell your friends!
With that, we’ll leave you with some more photos from our most recent trip together.
(The first one was taken by Cait, the second by Yael.)
Thank you again!

We’re up on SheWired for our Kickstarter! Check it out!
We only have 9 days left to raise $1,354!!! Spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, your blog or through an email to friends.
Here are more photos from our most recent trip!
We want to thank all of you that have backed us, gotten the word out there or are waiting to deposit your next check to back us! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
We are halfway to our goal and have about half the time left of our Kickstarter to raise the rest. That’s where you guys come in! We want to introduce you to the 3 F’s:
Five Dollars from
Five Hundred People
In 2 days!
With your help, you can spread the word, get your friends to spread the word, get your friends’ friends to spread the word, your gardener, plumber, person who gives you coffee in the morning, everyone to spread the word!
It’s super simple… Go to your facebook page and in your status, post the link to our project
and announce the 3 F’s:
$5= Five Dollars
500= Five Hundred People
in 2 Days!
To support our awesome photobook!
Tell your friends to repost the status so we can reach everyone.
We’ve gotten amazing support from our friends and family, but now it’s time to get people we DON’T know excited about our project!
We also have another very exciting update!
These are from our most recent adventure! We want you guys to get an idea of our style and how we shoot so you can get a sense of what to look forward to in our book! While we were on this trip, we took our cameras everywhere, just like we’ll be doing for the book!
First two photographs are by Cait and the bottom two are by Yael!

We’re at 18 days to go and we’ve raised $1,214! Thank you SO much to everyone who has pledged. We are eternally grateful.
At this point, we’ve gained so much support from friends and family and now it’s time to start getting help from strangers who are into what we’re doing. We have a favor to ask of you…
If you’re as psyched about this book as we are, PLEASE help us spread the word! We need all of the reblogs, tweets, facebook posts, and emails to your mom’s friends that we can possibly get. In order to keep up the momentum and make this project happen, we desperately need the help of all of the people who haven’t heard about this book yet. So, if you have 30 seconds, send it out to friends, family, and coworkers! We seriously owe you!

We are Cait Oppermann and Yael Malka. We both recently graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and we have an awesome project that we would love for you all to know about!
On July 7th, we’re starting a two-month trip across Europe with the hopes of making a book.
We don’t want to give everything away here, so please go check out our Kickstarter page and watch our video! We can be very charming.
Throughout the funding process (and hopefully afterward if our project gets funded!) we’ll post updates and documentation of the project. Make sure you follow us to stay posted!
Thanks in advance, we love you.
