ARCHINOTE

<p> <strong>The 'ARCHINOTE' collection</strong> came into existence at the end of 2012. A series of postcard format <strong>guide books in two languages</strong>, illustrated with photos and drawings that explain a building and its features <em>in situ</em>: the site and the context, the origins of the project, the architecture and its creators, the technical, design, landscaping and other related issues.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="3ier-1458817970" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/295031/3ier-1458817970.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> The collection was born out of a <strong>passion for architecture</strong> and recognition that a gap in the market needed filling: architectural and city tourism enthusiasts often end up either with a case full of books and an empty wallet, or the opposite...</p> <p>  </p> <p> This was the basis of our idea: <strong>the 'why/how' of a building in a pocket-sized, affordable guide book.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>'Tourists' don't all speak French</strong>, so the Archinotes are in two languages - usually French and English.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Voici un lien qui vous permet de feuilleter et de lire l'Archinote 004 </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>                                <a href="http://fr.calameo.com/read/004745745438a3c44b757" target="_blank">Archinote 004 : Lyon, le Parc de la Tête d'Or</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="32_me-1458818358" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/295039/32_me-1458818358.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Qualite-1461070826" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/306289/Qualite-1461070826.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>We aim for high quality,</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Both<strong> in our choice of subjects</strong>: remarkable buildings or sites open to the public, with a strong significance for the city in which they are set;</p> <p>  </p> <p> and <strong>in their production</strong>: our Archinotes are for the general public as well as for more experienced enthusiasts; offering a user-friendly guided tour</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The photos, numerous and illustrative</strong>, invite the reader to visit the building for themselves, and serve as a keepsake of the visit.</p> <p>                        </p> <p> <img alt="2_me2pages-1458822655" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/295071/2_me2pages-1458822655.jpg"></p> <p>                        Archinote n°6, Cap Moderne in Roquebrune Cap-Martin.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The books themselves attest to these high standards: perfect for any pocket or bag, sturdy enough to resist enthusiastic perusal; so even a well-thumbed copy will not end up as a set of dog-eared, unbound pages at the bottom of your bag.</p> <p>  </p> <p> This is because we have opted for a robust quality of paper, both in terms of weight (115 gr/m2 for inside pages and 200 gr/m2 for the cover) and the laminated mat treatment which makes it pleasant to touch, improves water resistance and provides exceptional protection. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Exigences également en termes de prix : la qualité à un prix abordable…</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> The books themselves attest to these high standards: perfect for any pocket or bag, sturdy enough to resist enthusiastic perusal;

But these large structures are not very interested in 'small publishers'.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In order to get around these difficulties, we have decided to look at the <strong>alternative options for funding</strong>: to find a <strong>'distribution' method based on the advanced sale of annual subscriptions</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In addition to raising our profile and getting the Archinotes into the public domain, it will create a beneficial snowball effect...</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="_next-1463145472" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/316090/_next-1463145472.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> The collection began in Lyon and then spread across France. Coming soon - Europe and beyond...<strong> </strong></p> <p> Si les abonnements hors de la France sont nombreux, cela nous pousserait à sortir rapidement de l’hexagone…</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Les prochains numéros : Ils paraîtront de septembre 2016 à juin 2017</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Les bâtiments que seront choisis pour l'année prochaine se retrouvent dans toute la France, Lille ou Roubaix, Nantes ou Rennes, Bordeaux, Marseille, Montpellier...

Allocation of funds

<p> <strong>In order to be able to start printing</strong>, we need <strong>750 annual subscriptions</strong>.The fixed annual fee is €45 for 10 numbers - <strong>generating a total of €33,750.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>For things to go really well,</strong> we need 2,000. Anything between these two figures means we are making progress! Every subscription counts. Pour 750 abonnements, cela représente 2,35 € par Archinote. Il est à noter que les frais d'imprimeur diminuent lorsque le nombre d'abonnements augmente, une raison de plus pour multiplier les inscriptions !</p> <p> Apart from treating yourself to a subscription, you could also offer one as a present to anyone you think deserves it !</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>What will the money pay for?</strong></p> <p> <strong>Firstly</strong>, 8% of money raised goes to KKBB (€2,700).</p> <p> <strong>Puis</strong>, sur la somme restante, nous payons la TVA de 5,5 % soit 1.620€</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The rest , €29.430, will be spent as follows :</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Printing and postage fees</strong> for 10 Archinote guides, as well as subscriber offers, come to €17,500.</p> <p> <strong>Part of remunerations or copyright fees</strong> for the writers, photographers, the translator and the graphic designer account for €13,550.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Once the first 750 subscriptions are reached</strong>, funds raised will allow us to increase levels of remuneration for the authors and creators of this collection. They certainly deserve it; their commitment and willingness to work for a relatively small initial fee have made the creation and launch of this collection possible.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>As of 1,000 subscriptions</strong>, we will offer a free pouch/holder to keep a year's collection of Archinotes.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Once we have over 1,250 subscriptions</strong>, we can start to develop tablet and/or laptops versions </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Le prix de l'Archinote (4,5€) est basé sur la publication d'un minimum de 1250 exemplaires donc de 1250 abonnements.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em><strong>Le prix de l'abonnement annuel  pour la France est fixé à 45€ pour 10 numéros</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> Vos dons, quel qu’en soit le montant, nous permettront de garantir la <strong>continuité de notre service</strong>.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Concrètement</strong>, nous avons établi un système de paliers afin d'atteindre au fur et à mesure nos différents objectifs.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Nous aimerions collecter au minimum 17 000 €, soit un peu plus de 350 abonnements annuels.</strong></p> <p> Mais nous avons également des idées pour des projets plus grands qui peuvent aller beaucoup plus loin !   </p> <p>  </p> <p> Voici le détail de nos paliers : </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Objectif 1</strong></p> <p> <strong>17 000 € : Un bon départ </strong></p> <p> <strong>- 6 mois d’avance pour la collection Archinote.</strong></p> <p> On peut commencer à travailler sereinement pour la parution des premiers numéros prévue à partir de septembre 2016.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Objectif 2</strong></p> <p> <strong>35 000 € : On respire !</strong></p> <p> <strong>- un an donc 10 numéros d’Archinote garantis. Quel luxe :</strong></p> <p> une longue période de concentration sur notre métier devant nous ! On fera tout pour que vous soyez contents aussi en prenant du temps pour échanger sur vos envies et vos propositions.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Objectif 3</strong></p> <p> <strong>50 000 € : On se développe</strong></p> <p> <strong>- en plus des numéros papiers, </strong>nous <strong>développons</strong> les abonnements pour <strong>tablettes ou/et portables.</strong></p> <p> et nous offrons une <strong>pochette de rangement pour garder les Archinotes de l’année</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Après, viendra l'application pour géolocaliser les bâtiments de la collection ...</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>What will the money pay for?</strong></p> <p> <strong>Firstly</strong>, 8% of money raised goes to KKBB (€1,360).</p> <p> <strong>Puis</strong>, sur la somme restante, nous payons la TVA de 5,5 % soit 815€</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The rest , €14.825, will be spent as follows :</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Printing and postage fees</strong> for 5 Archinote guides, as well as subscriber offers, come to €7,860</p> <p> .</p> <p> <strong>Part of remunerations or copyright fees</strong> for the writers, photographers, the translator and the graphic designer account for €6,965.</p> <p>  </p> <p> I<strong>l est prévu d'envoyer le premier Archinote de l'abonnement le 15 septembre 2016.
