Please come along with us - join us on the adventure of creating a brand new art book project. The result will be a beautiful coloring book that can be enjoyed, shared or gifted for adults and children alike!

The new Legend Nouveau Coloring Book
The new Legend Nouveau Coloring Book

 

We are producing a new coloring book of famous legends called "Legend Nouveau". It will be 24 pages, 26 images, a full color cover, printed on 70# paper and will include, as a special feature, a three-page pull-out centerfold! 

Drawn in the Art Nouveau style, this new coloring book will explore many of the most famous myths & legends, some less famous and a few surprises! Herb has always been a great admirer of the early 20th century illustrators especially Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell and of course Alphonse Mucha and their influence can be seen in the images he produces. 

This Kickstarter campaign will end in mid October and we are planning to have all the rewards sent by the end of that month, in plenty of time for Christmas! Those of you who supported our previous project know that we try to give good updates as the project progresses and that we ship our rewards very quickly upon completion, this time should be no different.

Our books are full of beautiful, highly detailed drawings for adults and kids to color. We are planning to make this first edition printing 1000 books but if we exceed our goal we will be able to do a larger run, as well as give our backers some surprise additional rewards. This is a great way for our supporters and friends to get some special extra rewards for pre-ordering the new coloring book and helping us to produce this wonderful project!

This will be our 6th 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. Three of our other coloring books are also in the Art Nouveau style with elaborate twisting borders, depictions of birds, animals and insects...and of course creatures from the worlds of fantasy and myth. 

This time we have 8 different rewards with three at the $25 level to give you plenty of affordable choices. 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 $100 rewards level has so much fun stuff including a brand new original calendar of full color images from the coloring book and a chance to get an original one of a kind drawing on the inside cover of your book.

Risks and challenges

This will be our sixth coloring book and second kickstarter, we are not new to this and we know what our expenses and production time will be. There is very little risk to this project if it is funded. Previous backers know that we are as professional as we can be about answering questions and sending out our rewards quickly. When it comes to fulfillment, every project has potential obstacles, from production delays to other mishaps. If we make a mistake we will fix it.
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.
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 of September 2016. Kickstarter participants should receive their copies around the end of October.
We anticipate the book will be available commercially later that month. A great idea for a Christmas or 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 be determined as we go if there is enough interest, 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!
