Continuing our collection of themed compilation books, 13crowns is happy to announce GhostBook!
Comprised of 60 artists, GhostBook features illustrations and short comics with a ghost theme. GhostBook will be sized 8.5 x 11 inches with over 80 pages of art, ranging from comical to gruesomely wonderful!
We were so happy having managed to gather such a large variety of talented people, both friends and those we would have never been able to find alone. This book was our biggest endeavor yet, with more than 5 time the artists we've collected to date, and more than double the pagecount! With as proud we are of it, we wanted to make a big to-do for its release- specialty decals, stickers and the like -but such a big book, alone, is expensive enough to make, let alone the extras. So we need your help!
To go a long with the book, we're hoping to raise the funds to make GhostBook charms, stickers and decals! These will be available for sale separately later, or as rewards for pledges here on KickStarter!
Any additional funding will go to a special edition dust-jacket, only available to those who helped fund the project.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The largest foreseeable problem at this point is if something were to be delayed on our printer's end. We've used this self-publishing printing company for all of our books, and they have always been extremely reliable and fast. At this point, all our participants have turned their art in, and the book is already formatted and ready to go to print. All we need is funding to get them made!
We do many online sales and are regularly shipping orders out to customers, so any problems with lost items and delayed delivery will be handled with experience and quickly.
Very few. Because of the much higher expense of making the book hard cover, we're only able to print about 20 of them without dedicating too much of the budget to them. They will be available for sale only here on KickStarter.
There will be announcements made on the 13crowns Tumblr, Twitter and FaceBook when there are available for sale on those shops.
Unfortunately, no, at least not in the foreseeable future. Hardcover is much, MUCH more expensive to do, especially with a book with a page count as high as this. We were hoping to do a small run of hardcovers for special order, but they were easily 4 times as much to produce.
