Crowdfund Campaign for ‘Byron Bay the History Beauty and Spirit’ Book


Byron Bay’s much loved coffee table book, ‘Byron Bay the History, Beauty and Spirit’ launched a ‘CrowdFunding’ campaigned on Thursday May 14th and local author and publisher Peter Duke is determined to try and save this iconic book.

When the book ‘sold out’ in March 2015, Peter was resigned not to republish, due to financial constraints. However, in the month to follow, positive feedback and interest in the book continued and when a couple of local identities suggested ‘CrowdFunding’ as a means to raise the cost’s for a second print run, the idea sparked Peter’s desire to revive the book.

If you feel this book has an important place in helping to support Byron Bay’s rich heritage and identity, please click on the link below, preview the campaign and buy a book.
