New York's Love Injection launch Kickstarter Campaign for 300-page book on Paul W. Klipsch
'Dope From Hope' reproduces the audio pioneer's cult newsletters, with its funding aided by the Kickstarter
New York's Love Injection has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund the publication of a 300-page book, 'Dope From Hope', on audio pioneer Paul Klipsch's iconic newsletters.
The campaign launched on January 31 and is running for 30 days - nearly two years after its intended launch date of March 2020 - hindered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fully endorsed by the Klipsch Group, the coffee-table book reproduces the polymath's cult newsletters, draft papers, sketches, and captions in its true-to-life, actual dimensions.

"We believe these papers, originally intended for insiders like dealers and Klipsch-owners, deserve a wider audience," Love Injection says to Mixmag. "Paul W. Klipsch’s honest, plain language and sharp wit will be inspiring to the next generation of audio enthusiasts.
"For the well acquainted, these historic documents scanned in high resolution in all of their original glory make a great addition to any Klipsch fans' collection."
Hailing from Hope, Arkansas, the late Paul Klipsch launched his career in 1946 upon founding one of the first United States loudpseaker companies with the Klipschorn its pioneer product, the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society later publishing one of his papers in 2000.
