Tub Lit: Kickstarter project offers waterproof books

 

Shakespeare tub

The latest crowdsourced gem for the book crowd comes to us from Bibliobath.

Thanks to Wing Weng and Jasper Jansen, a Dutch-Chinese couple based in Amsterdam, we finally have the waterproof book!

They have 4 titles ready to go; a selection of short stories by Mark Twain, one of the selected poetry by W. B. Yeats, an edition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and a special Kickstarter-only edition of the Chinese classic The Art of War.

The campaign just launched and the goal is to raise about $10,000 in the next month. Among the rewards are a couple geared toward booksellers where you can buy multiple copies at a discount.

They got some of my money.
