Scott Thomas, the design director of the Obama Presidential Campaign, is putting together a book called Designing Obama that takes a look at the enormous effect the art community had on helping elect President Barack Obama. The book features the artwork of those people who were officially and unofficially helping the campaign gain attention in the media. Spread out among 360 pages are inspirational, beautiful, and influential pieces of art that each ended up serving its part in electing America’s first African-American President.

The wonderful thing about this book is that it’s being funded just like the grassroots movements during the campaign. Together with KICKSTARTER, Scott Thomas is hoping to raise at least $65,000 to run the minimum order of books. Any additional proceeds during the fundraiser (from now until Novemeber 4, 2009) will be used to print additional books for every single person who pledges to help this project through to the end.

Currently there are 4 levels of participation each with its own unique copy of Designing Obama. You can pledge $10, $50, $100, or $150 and if for whatever reason the book doesn’t raise at least $65,000 by November 4th, you get all of your money back — no questions asked!
Head on over to KICKSTARTER now to help get this beautiful book out the door as soon as possible!
