About




THE PROJECT

This kickstarter is in celebration of the unusual histories and occurrences of the North East of England. From the wonderful to the plain weird, I have tried to capture a small part of this world in an illustrated book.

I have always loved the strange histories of the north and all the mystical rumours around them, and they are the inspiration for this book!

This project began as my Final Major Project at university, a small book with illustrations themed around the mythologies, mysteries and creepy histories of the North, but it has since become a more personal method of documenting parts of what this culture is made of. It is the culmination of every story my parents told me, each museum I visited and each book I read, especially the old and incredible stories from my childhood.

THE BOOK

The 40 pages of this book contain 12 weird and wonderful things that I have illustrated and written short stories about are a mix of old histories, hoaxes and rumours that have taken on a life of their own. Some of these are:

- The Death of the Northumberland Fairies

- The Witches of Newcastle

- The Hand of Glory

- The Hexham Heads

- The Sockburn Worm

and many more!

OTHER PRODUCTS

In addition to the book I have created other products from the illustrations and narratives included within the book. These are:

- 38mm Badges

- Bookmarks

- Sticker Packs (with 5 Stickers)


THE PLEDGE LEVELS 

Post cards! Just to say thank you for showing support and helping to bring this project to life!

SHIPPING


As I am based in the UK delivering this project overseas will cost more than within the UK. The shipping charge is a mix of the charge from the post office and the cost of the packaging which your pledge will be sent in. The charge right now is £4 for the UK £6 for international deliveries.


What about Customs charges?

You're responsible for any customs or import duties your country imposes – the Shipping charge just covers postage and packaging.


Stretch goals...

If this project is fortunate enough to fund, I have prepared some stretch goals which I would like to bring to life as well, including adding sketchbook pages to this book!

Risks and challenges

I am one person, so getting this project created has been a challenge, but a challenge I have very much enjoyed! This book is the culmination of years of research and planning but the final stretch has been the most difficult: the creation.
Because I am a single creator, postage may take time. I will be individually packing and posting each item, so you can be sure that I will be taking care of each pledge.
