The Playing Cards

THE DECK OF CARDS is a standard deck of playing cards (poker sized) printed at 310 GSM (printing is by MPC) featuring the dragons and eggs from the book.  Each card will have a different picture - no repeated artwork in the deck!

  • ADDITIONAL DECKS may be added on for $12 US/$14 International.

The Book

THE BOOK is a 6x9 inch guide  (hardcover or paperback) on how to care for baby dragons.  Topics covered include identifying and hatching dragon eggs, bonding with newborns, feeding, washing, and even training techniques!

  • Additional paperbacks can be added for $15 US/$16 International each (combined shipping included). 
  • Additional hardcovers can be added for $20 US/$23 International each (combined shipping included).

This is my 4th book in a series of creature field and care guides which started in fall of 2013 with a 200 page book called Dragon Scale and was followed up in 2014 with Water Dragons & Other Rare Aquatic Creatures and Fire Dragons & Other Rare Ember Creatures. Many more books are planned - the next will be Earth Dragons.

The How-To-Draw Book

NOW UNLOCKED! This "How to Draw & Paint Baby Dragons" book is a 50 page 8x10 paperback with step by step pictures and easy to follow directions!  Tools used in the book are pencil, ink, and watercolor.   Adding this book is  $8 US / $9 Canada /$10 International 

How can you fit in time to make another book!? This is minimal extra work for me to create - I'm just scanning the artwork for the book at different stages so I have step by step photos. Writing the text and laying out the book is 2-3 days of work at most, so it will not change the timeline on the project. 

Limited Edition Posters

Unlocked! Three LIMITED EDITION 18x24 posters are available for backers to add on for $24 US/$28 International per poster OR $45 US/$50 International for a set of all three. Posters feature a 1/2 white border around the edge of the artwork to allow for framing/matting. 

No more than 400 of each will EVER be printed. They will be hand signed and numbered and then mailed in a tube.

Prints and Print Sets

You can add a set of baby dragon prints to any reward level or add individual prints.  There are ten different prints available CLICK HERE TO SEE THEM ALL.

Risks and challenges

As mentioned in the project story I've already kickstartered a number of earlier books in the series so I'm pretty experienced. In fact, I expect to deliver the books earlier than March, but am setting the deadline there to allow for any printing issues or other mishaps that might occur. This is my 12th kickstarter! So you can count on quality product and on time delivery!
