The Angelarium is a place where experiences, ideas and archetypes exist as real living entities. It's the domain of angels and emanations. Growing at its center sits the Tree of Life, a physical manifestation that reflects the whole of existence.

This 52 page art book is a chronicle of Enoch, a living man who traveled the Angelarium and explored the interior world of the Tree of Life. He encounters its ten emanations, and ruminates upon the unknowable being that is Ein Sof.

With your support, I'll be able to create this initial printing of Angelarium: Book of Emanations and build a foundation for more releases set in this world. Support for this project helps the team that created it build upon the work that's been done create more moving forwards.

Creators

Peter Mohrbacher and Eli Minaya
Peter Mohrbacher and Eli Minaya

Angelarium was created by me, Peter Mohrbacher. I've collaborated with artist and writer Eli Minaya to help bring this vision to life. His iconic ink drawings were the basis for most of the Emanation's appearance and his writing is the basis for the book's story.

Albino Dragon Cross Promotion

If you back this campaign and Albino Dragon's Angelarium Poker Deck campaign you get a free bonus print of Matariel, Angel of Rain. (*must back both campaigns at $25 or more)

Addons

Here's some other stuff we created for the project you can get as well:

Regular rewards will start shipping around May. But any addons you pick up from the Angelarium store will usually ship out within about a week.

Kickstarter Exclusive Challenge Coin

This 2" challenge coin is being created expressly for this campaign and will only be available through Kickstarter. It's included in every reward tier of $55 and over. The design features Eli's illustration of Keter as heads and Malkuth as tails.

Sketch Primer

This 5.5" x 8.5" paper cover book contains all the sketches from the process of creating the main book. It's a great companion item and it's now included in all the "deluxe" tiers and higher!

Rewards

Angelarium: Book of Emanations is a 52 page hardcover art book with dust jacket. It'll contain at least 22 original illustrations for Peter Mohrbacher and Eli Minaya along with accompanying poetry and short stories.

Risks and challenges

I've never printed a book before but I know that any new venture incurs risk.

To help make sure this thing works out the best it can, I've decided to work with a local printing company that specializes in helping independent creators publish crowdfunded projects. I'm going to be leaning on their expertise to help make sure that the quality of the book and the pipeline from concept to delivery goes smoothly.

Will this be late? Probably. Every campaign I've run has been delivered late no matter how much I prepare for it. I can't promise shit won't happen, but I do promise to be transparent about it and as helpful as I can before, during and after this project gets funded.
