WE DID IT! ALL GOALS REACHED! THANK YOU!
Hi! I'm Jessica Feinberg, an author and illustrator dedicated to bringing dragons and other creatures to life! Dragons & Rare Creatures Vol 1 compiles all the art and writing I've been working on for the past year into a 300 page full color book! The month-to-month work on the project has been funded by my patreon subscribers and now all that is left is to fund bulk printing of a paperback and special edition hardcover book. This is my largest field guide yet and I am VERY excited to share it with all of you!
You can find the details about the book and all the other rewards offered on this project below. Note: If you want a special reward set with multiple books please contact the project creator for a custom pledge.
The book is 6x9 inches and 300 pages! Each creature also has information about it such as where it may be found, habitat and history. The creatures are mainly dragons, but I've also included some other creatures like the Gryphnix (griffin phoenix), Jackalope, Cuddlewumpus, Werewolf etc.
The book has three formats: Digital PDF, Paperback, and Special Edition Hardcover. The Special Edition Hardcover is bound with blue cloth and has gold lettering on the spine. The front cover is HAND DRAWN in gold so each one is UNIQUE and signed! The hardcover will have a dust jacket as well that matches the cover of the paperback.
All physical books (paperback and hardcover) are signed! Some pledge levels also offer personalized books - backers will have the option to have them signed to a specific person.
Want MORE than one copy of the book? Simply contact the project creator for a custom pledge based on your location and the number of books you want (I will optimize shipping as cheaply as possible for you).
BOOKMARKS & BOOKPLATE STICKER
Bookmark sets are five bookmarks (we unlocked a bonus one!). Three are 2x8 inches and two are jumbo 2.75 x 8.5 inches! Some reward sets also include a bookplate sticker (featuring an ink dragon) that is designed to go inside your book and list who it belongs to.
Extra sets of bookmarks and bookplate stickers can be added onto pledges (except the digital pledge level). Bookmark sets are $5 and the bookplate sticker is $1
Prints sets are four 4x6 inch prints. Extra sets of prints can be added onto pledges (except the digital pledge level) for $8 each.
ALL UNLOCKED! We unlocked two brand new ID prints (Tea & Coffee and Household Creatures) AND we also unlocked the four older ID prints from past projects!
- 11x17 Prints are $14 each with a one time shipping cost of $3 US or $10 International for up to 12 prints (will be shipped rolled in a tube).
- 11x7 prints are $8 each.
- Set of all six 11x17 prints is $65 plus shipping of $3 US or $10 International.

Digital reward sets are a PDF of the book, five new desktop wallpaper images, and two new print and color pages.
Patreon Subscriber BONUS:
ALL patreon subscribers who back this project for a physical copy of the book and are subscribed for the October 1st payment will also get a bonus bookplate sticker with a special alternate design! Those who are backed at the $5+ level will also get a BONUS bookmark too!
The following original watercolor paintings are available as part of pledge levels. Note: because the book is thicker/heavier than past books in most cases the paintings will be shipped separately from the book.
Here is a look at how one of the paintings for the book goes from pencil to watercolor (shown at 8 times actual speed):

Risks and challenges
The book is ready for printing now (proof copies already arrived and are approved) and I've working with all the printers/publishers on past projects so there is very little risk! I've successfully funded and shipped over 30 projects already, so I am highly experienced and always allow some time/money for any issues that may arise. I take my backers pledges very seriously and always deliver on time - usually earlier!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
