The Return of the $1,000 Weekend!

If we’re to stay on course to make our Kickstarter goal and publish a children’s picture-book dictionary of endangered languages, we need to raise another $1,000 by 9 a.m. EST on Monday.
The last time we set a thousand-dollar weekend goal we succeeded, thank to support all over the world–some in large pledges, some in small ones. And some thanks to Facebook friends sharing my post and urging their friends to help out.
So: please back us at, or send others our way.
Or both!
P.S. The image is indeed one of my carvings, but it’s not a language from the Hill Tracts. Extra points if you spotted that–and didn’t complain!

    Would like to see a translation in English of some of the Nushu words. I am an artist and would like to use some of this script in my monoprints but don’t feel right using them if I don’t know what they mean. Thank you.

    I’m going to donate on kickstarter. Will post on Facebook.

      Thanks so much for your interest, your pledge and your question. I’m still trying to track down someone who can read and write Nushu myself. As soon as I have found a source, I’ll let you know!
