Art of the Ars Goetia - Demons of the Lesser Key of Solomon

£9,468

This project is for a full set of 72 Demon Medieval Woodcut style Prints, inspired by the Lesser Key Solomon Ars Goetia Grimoire. All artwork will be printed on aged parchment paper, size 210mm x 148mm (approx 8.25" x 6"). There's only the one pledge level for the whole set, which is available to everyone Worldwide.

Having recently seen another project based on the Ars Goetia be highly successful, I figured it was maybe the right time to get this set finished up and out into the World, since I feel it'd make a great companion set to the aforementioned project*. It's also nice to see so many people interested in this subject matter!

*By request from the creator of that aforementioned product (and with his permission), the prints can be altered to show a picture of the coins from his project instead of the Seals, so they match. I can do this for anyone who would like it. Here's an idea of the coins (these aren't final, I'll get scans from him later on once he's finalised his designs):

And here are a couple of quick examples to show them incorporated in to the artwork to give a general idea:

An example of the prints with Seals on the aged parchment paper can be seen here:

All the artwork is original and largely based on the descriptions in the Ars Goetia (where there is a description; although some artistic liberties have been taken here and there, mostly for the sake of interest/variance!) as well as artwork featured in other Medieval Demonology texts, and each also includes the Seal(s)/Sigil(s) of the corresponding Demon.

The artwork is already done apart from maybe a few tweaks, which is why I can set the minimum goal for this project, and all of it can be seen in these pics (mostly in the right order apart from the ones in the last pic as they're the latest to be finished). Please forgive the reduced quality as there are a lot of them to fit in, and note that the digital filter was added purely to give a general idea. It doesn't represent the actual colour of the prints, please see the actual prints above for an idea of that:

Despite not being Goetia Demons, to say thank you to backers I've now added 3 bonus stretch goal prints, Leviathan, Lucifer and Lilith.

Risks and challenges

My previous projects have all been successfully fulfilled (and even pretty much on time!), so I feel I have a decent track record, and as the artwork is already complete there's only the printing that needs to be done.
