- The medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold or to find a universal elixir.
synonyms: chemistry; magic, sorcery, witchcraft
- "Immortality through alchemy" : a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.
Have you ever wondered about how two people can hear the same thing and have two different reactions? Have you ever watched an artist draw and just wonder where the ideas come from? This book is going to poke at both of these questions.
We've 20 invited artists from around the country to publish a piece in this book. We've given them one simple guide:
A is for Alchemy
Each of our artists has a unique style and technique. In this book we'll be able to see each of the different paths that the artist's mind takes and where they end up.
Along with their piece, we'll get to know a little about the artist. We'll show you where you can find additional works, how you can purchase their art, and how to request commission pieces. We'll also ask each artist the same 5 questions to see how their responses differ. We anticipate the results to be both beautiful and wildly entertaining.

Risks and challenges
Acknowledging the risks and challenges of this project is mildly terrifying but I'm glad they (*Kickstarter) make us do it. "We" want to be professional and look like we have it all figured out, but does anyone really have it ALL figured out?
We've never done a book before but we are wildly excited about this opportunity. We stumbled upon #Make100 1/30/18 with a 1/31/18 launch deadline and we haven't slept since. We've found 1/2 of the necessary artists as well as a publisher and we're ready to rock'n'roll on the rest.
PRLCreative brings the best of both worlds to this project. Amy has organized multiple live music shows with accompanying silent auctions in the past. We believe this enables her to pull all the puzzle pieces together to make this project happen. Jeremy, on the other hand, is one of our amazing artists as well as a graphic designer by trade. He's developed multiple CD, brochure and booklet layouts. This gives him the knowledge he needs to layout the book and work directly with the publisher for an amazing finished project.
This book is still in the formation phase but we have the fullest confidence that our finished project will make everyone involved proud and our supporters excited that they were a part of the creation.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
