“Wings of Desire” Looks To Bring the Angels of Berlin to the World With Your Help

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

As you may know by now, we love to bring attention to the latest German or German-America Kickstarter projects for our readers.  Kickstarter allows you to pledge money, in an amount that fits your budget, to help make a project possible.  There are some projects that ask for several hundred thousand and bring in several million, but there are also a larger amount that are just seeking a couple thousand and yet never make their goal.  Sure, a lot of it depends on the project, but this latest campaign by the Berlinica publishing group is asking for very little with a goal that can go a long way.

Wings of Desire – Angels of Berlin is the latest book set to be released by Berlinca, and while the book itself is already funded, they are looking to translate the book in an additional 5 languages (Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese).  Mainly a picture book, Wings of Desire brings attention to the history of the many historic angles that make the city of Berlin known as the city of angels.

This 100-page book just needs some financial help to cover the cost of the 5 translations.  Berlinica is looking for $1000 by December 20, 2012, and I am confident that our German Pulse readers can make a substantial impact in helping them reach their goal.  Various pledge amounts are set up so that you will receive a gift for your pledge and  pledges of $30 or more will even get you a copy of the book.  So if you have a little extra that you can give, please check out the source link below to head on over to the Kickstarter page.
