Unbound Launches Its Kickstarter-Byliner Hybrid For Celebrity Authors

Thanks to Kickstarter, the idea of crowd-funding a creative project is nothing new. Post- Cory Doctorow, the notion that an established author might convince his fans to pay upfront for a special edition of an as-yet unpublished book is hardly earth-shattering. And, following the launch of Byliner, even the launch of a digital-only publishing house isn’t really news.

And yet, by combining all of the best elements of those three examples, UK-based Unbound hopes to create something very remarkable indeed.
