The Lost Perth facebook page was an overnight success, bringing joy to thousands of people who shared images and stories and reminisced about iconic venues, people, items, events and sites which had all but been forgotten.

Within days of the Lost Perth facebook site being launched by its founder Warren Duffy, thousands of people were taking their ipads and laptops to parents and grandparents to share the page and watch with delight as their loved ones were transported back to another time.

Facebook's Lost Perth page allows people to share memories, tell their family stories and basically remember the good old times - and now we want to put those memories and stories in print, so they'll have a place in history forever.

We want LOST PERTH THE BOOK to find a place on your coffee table or on your grandparent's bedside table. We want it to contain YOUR STORIES, YOUR MEMORIES, YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS. We want it to be YOUR BOOK and that is why we are asking YOU to help fund it.

Lost Perth founder Warren Duffy will work with Kristen Watts, an experienced journalist and publisher to put LOST PERTH THE BOOK together.

If you support this project, it might even have your name in it or your family's story or picture in it.
When it's printed, it will be available for purchase online for $25 and part of the profits from book sales will be donated to charity.

We can't get these stories and memories printed in book format, without your help. When you support this project your contribution will buy you a copy of the book, or a voucher to use towards purchase of the book.

We've already collected hundreds of images and stories to put in print, but during the next two months we will be on the look out for more great material and we welcome your contributions.

Please help us make sure Lost Perth memories find their place in homes all over the city.

Your pledged support with go towards:
administration costs (curating)
writing and editing (we need to tell your stories)
design and production (that's how we make it look beautiful)
printing costs (we want to produce a hard cover, glossy book of at least 120 pages)
postage and distribution (so we can get it out to you, if your pledge gets you a copy)
a launch party (so we can all celebrate our achievements in putting this book together)

The more money we raise, the more pages and the memories we can include in the book.
