Fundraising page launched for Tom Hurndall book
Trolley Books has set up a fundraising page on IndieGoGo to raise money to pay for the publication of 'The Middle East Journals of Tom Hurndall' - the aspiring photojournalist killed in Gaza in 2003.
Trolley say: "We are looking for $34,000 (£21,660, €25,500) to cover the cost of printing 3,000 copies of the book ‘The Middle East Journals of Tom Hurndall’, which we will then distribute internationally.
"As a small independent publisher of photography and photojournalism titles, Trolley Books often struggle to fund production due to the high cost of printing, and because many of the books are not commercially viable enough to support themselves.
"Trolley has decided for the first time to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, as we really believe that Tom's book will appeal to all those interested in not just Tom's personal and tragic story, but in photography, photojournalism, politics & poetry, and hopefully some of you who know our books and want to support the work of Trolley too."
