Grab the opportunity to have your face forever emortalized in print (or until all copies of the book end up in charity shops!)
Alex seems to have moved from charging a “per face” to allowing people to sponsor one of the 1250 pages that the finished book will have. Since swapping to this model the book has started to fill quite rapidly so take the chance to get your mugshot up there!
What’s the idea behind this?
The project revolves around the concept of capturing the faces one million people who are part of the digital generation! You pick a square on the 1250 page virtual book, pay your $3 and upload your photo.
Woah, so this guys going to earn $3,000,000 if he fills the book up?!
Yup, great concept eh! You’ll have noticed if you clicked the first link in this post that I’ve already splashed out my $3 to appear on page 1 on the book and am keen to see how quickly this project goes viral like his previous project.
Can I buy lots of spaces to put a bigger picture on?
Please read the sites FAQ before buying as the rules on what is and isn’t acceptable are all laid out.
What about buying lots of spaces up to re=sell as the book gets full?
Great idea but unfortunately that’s banned too! You can reserve spaces for loved ones / family members but these must be assigned within 30 days of purchase. I’ve bought 4 other spaces which I will invite friends and family to take up later!
So once it’s full then what?
Alex is planning for the book to then be sent off into print with an estimated retail price of $100. If the book ever does get completed and into print I would expect that the price of the book would have to be significantly lower to sell well! Hell even if I’m on page one I’m not going to pay that sort of price to show the book to everyone who visits my home….or maybe I will!
So brilliant idea or giant scam!?
Having seen how the media and world took to Alex previous venture I decided for $3 it was worth investing in! In marketing people still talk about the original venture created by Alex and there is every sign that this project can go down the same route!
