Book launches Switzerland and ParisBy Parallel Lab, on 13/06/2015

Dear Friends,

It’s time for some updates about HONG KONG IN BETWEEN!

A few weeks ago we had the immense pleasure to finally launch HONG KONG IN BETWEEN in Hong Kong; the city where it all started. The celebration and echo was great and we were delighted to have the chance to meet some of you and to hand over the rewards in person.

For all our supporters in Switzerland and France, the same will be possible! Please pencil down the book launch dates in Zurich (1st July), Lausanne (3rd July) and Paris (24th June)! All further information are on the flyers below.

We very much look forward seeing you there. In case you can’t make it or you live too far away as some of our supporters please know that your rewards will be posted to your address directly after.

We wish you all a great summer and can’t wait meeting you.

All the best

Caroline & Geraldine

WE MADE IT !!By Parallel Lab, on 06/03/2015

Dear Backers,

We are speechless and incredibly touched by all the support our project has got. A few weeks ago we have still been doubting if crowd funding is the right way to go and were unable to hope for the scenario of what just happened:

HONG KONG IN BETWEEN has successfully been backed and within absolute record time! WE MADE IT!!!

It is time to send you all an immense THANK YOU for your trust, support and belief you put in us and this project. The excitement for us continues now by finalising the book and we can’t wait to see it on the printing press!

As it looks and if all runs smooth the book should be out this spring in HK and beginning of this summer in Europe!

Before that of course you will hear from us as the T-shirts, posters, STAGs etc are waiting for you and will be sent out as soon as the first copies of the book get out of the printer!

We keep you posted !

We're almost there!By Parallel Lab, on 18/02/2015

Dear Backers

You have all shown an imense support to our project and we would like to thank you for trusting in what we do.

In 2 weeks time we have got a support of 15’000euros which means that the HONG KONG IN BETWEEN is backed up to 80% already!

Please help us to continue spread the word and to make the last 20%. We have 15 more days to make it and as known these are the most difficult to make. So if you know anybody that would be happy to support or write up an article or spread the word through other means, feel free to put them in touch with us.

This morning going through our image folder about STAG we came across this «making of» photo composition we originally intended to use for the book. It will in the end not be featured in the book but we thought that this might be interesting to share.

Enjoy and Kung Hei Fat Choi (Happy Chinese New Year)!

Meanwhile we would like to share with you these pictures of Uncle Chan and Mr Tang that have sewn the STAGs and have been the incredible encounter behind this project. As you can see they are huge STAG lovers themselves !
