Pulling together his photography, writing, illustration and design experiences, Ed Kane, retired army media content producer of Lakewood, has put the final touches on a retirement book project decades in the making.
Kane’s book, Roads to Ruins, is a pictorial essay and history of the castles and other primarily defensive structures of Germany’s Middle Ages. Producing the material for his “retirement” project took six trips to Germany over 30 years. He has produced the entire book – photography, design illustrations and writing – himself as his legacy project. Now ready for printing, he has opted to raise the funding for the printing phase by appealing to the crowd-funding website, Kickstarter.com.
