Raising $150,000 on Kickstarter for a book about app icons

Michael Flarup started working on the idea of a book that would gather all the best iOS app icons along with backstories from the designers behind them. Now, 4 years later, the book is becoming a reality with a successful Kickstarter campaign that’s raised $150,000.
