"Fantasy Nouveau Coloring Book"

We are producing a new coloring book of dragons and unicorns called "Fantasy Nouveau". It will be 24 pages, 22 images, a full color cover, and printed on 70# paper. 

This will be our 5th coloring book and you as a backer will have a chance to purchase not only the new book but also the previous ones as well. These are full of beautiful highly detailed drawings for adults and kids to color. 

We are planning to make the initial first edition printing 1000 books. This is a great way for our supporters and friends to get some special extra rewards for pre-ordering the new coloring book! All pledges of $25 and up will also include a PDF version of the coloring book so you can print any of the pages out yourself.  

This new coloring book will feature lots of dragons, unicorns and a few surprises!.

Herb has always been a great admirer of the early 20th century illustrators especially Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish and of course Alphonse Mucha. Two of our current coloring books are in the art nouveau Mucha style with elaborate twisting borders, depictions of birds, animals and insects. Often the main focus is a fairy, usually a fairy that we know. They often like to sit for portraits with their favorite pet.

Many of the coloring pages start out their life as self indulgent paintings that Herb does for his own amusement. Every backer who pledges $15 or more will receive a color print of one of his paintings as well as the new coloring book. Then, depending on how much you would like to pledge to the project, you can receive one or all of the other coloring books.

We have tried to be very generous with the rewards so that all our backers will be happy, if you love to color or know someone who does this it the place for you! 

The higher rewards also include a full color art book called "The Art of Fae Nouveau" which details the process that Herb goes through to make his painting and drawings and has lots of full color art, some of his reference pictures and a lot of insider details.

If you are a collector we are giving you the chance to own an original drawing of one of the coloring book pages suitable for framing and signed by the artist.

Risks and challenges

When it comes to fulfillment, every project has potential obstacles, from production delays to other mishaps. Please understand that if the project does not meet its goal, no credit card is charged. Cards are only charged when the project meets its goal and the pledging period ends. Also if we do not get funded on Kickstarter we still plan on publishing our coloring book and our backers will be the first to know about it and purchase copies if they desire. It is not simply a matter of choosing an item and buying a speedy arrival - you are joining in the adventure of creating this book project. The result will be a beautiful coloring book that can be enjoyed, shared or gifted for adults and children alike!

The artwork that appears on this Kickstarter page are just a few samples of what will be in the book. Please continue to support Herb's work by pledging to this project. The Kickstarter timeline is only 45 days. We estimate that the book will be printed and ready for distribution at the end May 2015. Kickstarter participants should receive their copies around the beginning of June. We anticipate the book will be available commercially later that month. A great idea for a birthday gift for a special friend or for yourself!

All of the initial funds will go toward the costs of printing and shipping the books and the rewards. Our stretch goals will go toward funding the reprinting of the second edition of the Faerie Garden Coloring Book, the Third Edition of the Faerie Nouveau Coloring Book and the fifth edition of the Fae Nouveau Coloring Book, and there will be additional rewards for backers if theses are met.

Thank you so much for your time and attention, and have a magical day!
