Yesterday, Marshall launched a Kickstarer to finish the project, to gain funds to pay for editing, sound design and mix, vfx and wire removal, score, and color correction.

Anyone who made it to Shepard Fairey's May Day show, the final at Deitch Projects, remembers how striking the work looked against the gigantic white walls.

Book cover and spreads after the jump . . .
