About






From the age of 3, my daughter has been telling me about different wonderful creatures she made up that exist on a planet called Numquamori. The specificity, detail, and imaginative nature of these animals fascinated me, and I sought to write down everything I could about my growing daughter's magical world. Here I have compiled a bestiary of 30 of the animals, along with a brief history of the creation of the planet Numquamori, and some natural history of the land and sea. 

This book is a labor of love, something I wanted to make as a dedication to not only my daughter's imagination, but also as a reminder to myself that I also had this kind of boundless creativity as a child, and had forgotten it. In printing this book and allowing the public access to the world of Numquamori, I hope that other people may find inspiration as well to tap into their own wild imaginations and dare to create their own wondrous worlds.



Risks and challenges

All of the artwork for the book is complete, as is the editing and formatting. All we need is to print and ship! The pins and magnets for the tier that those apply to are also in my possession, and just await the printing of the books. I will keep all backers informed through the printing and shipping process as things progress. I've tried to keep this campaign as simple as possible, and have worked on the artwork and writing for 2 years to make sure everything was finished on my end before I set up the Kickstarter.
