On the old McNichol forum there was once a visual history of Rainsong guitars--it was stunning. I had had no idea that Rainsong had been so experimental.

I think that such a book could start with a Fund Me sort of thing, with significant contributions from the makers. Many of the original makers are still around--Maccaferri, Danelectro, and so forth--and each could be tapped for $ and material.

Contributions from users could be part of the running narrative. Contributions from Acoustic Guitar could include a serialized version.

The Go Fund bucks could go toward paying a good editor/layout-artist, cost of publication, and promotion.

It would be a lot of work for the editor/publisher, but a valuable work and one that can only be captured live right now--with many of the more prominent makers still alive.
