Crowdfunded photo book focuses on 'First Fleet' of NASA space shuttles

A photographer's long-forgotten, seldom seen images of NASA's first space shuttles are now set for publication, 30 years after they were captured.

"First Fleet: NASA's Space Shuttle Program 1981-1986," a collection of John Chakeres' photographs, will be released by Daylight Books in the fall of 2018, pending the outcome of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign nearing its end.

The campaign was funded (and then some) on Tuesday (Nov. 28), four days before it is set to close. As such, John Chakeres has offered a stretch goal:
If we reach a goal of $18,000, I will give everyone a mission patch. Those of you, who pledged for the patch, will get two.

The campaign has now surpassed $20,000, with three more days to go. From John Chakeres:
On the last update, I offered a stretch goal of a patch if we reached $18,000 so you will all be getting a patch with your pledge.

So today I'm offering another stretch goal. If we reach $25,000 by the end of the campaign on Sunday, I will give everyone a signed open edition print. The image we be 7 3/8"x9" signed on the front and printed on an 8 1/2"x11" sheet of Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk 310gsm Baryta paper. The image is below. Thank you again for all your support.
