The Dragon Watcher's Handbook is packed full of information for beginners and experienced dragon watchers!

The book features the many environments where one can go dragon watching including arctic, deep sea, underground, air, and urban locations. Topics covered include equipment, safety precautions, identification, and even excerpts from dragon watcher's journals. 

Backers can choose PDF, paperback, hardcover, or custom hardcover.

The custom hardcover is printed with only the title text and then has a hand drawn dragon added in ink and marker. Backers can choose if the custom cover should be Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Clockwork, or Book Wyrm themed.

ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS

A number of original watercolor paintings from the book are available as pledge level rewards! More paintings will unlock throughout the project. 
CLICK HERE for a gallery of the paintings!

 

The Journal

Every dragon watcher needs a place to record their observations! The Journal is 6x9 inches and 150 pages with cream paper.

The Journal features lined, unlined, and mixed pages so aspiring dragon watchers can make notes and sketches. Pages are decorated with small ink drawings. NOW UNLOCKED! Backers can choose from three different cover designs!

MORE BOOKS

Several pledge levels include additional guides (which the Handbook is designed to pair with) for folks who missed their kickstarters. They are also available as add-ons. 

Exotic, Rare, and Fantastical Eggs is a 4x6 inch 75 page paperback pocket guide for egg identification including dragon eggs, griffin eggs, Phoenix Eggs, and much more!

Strange and Unusual Feathers & Scales is a 4x6 inch 65 page paperback pocket guide to the scales and feathers of dragons, griffins, basilisks and other rare creatures.

Dragon Scale is a 200 page 6x9 guide containing OVER 200 Dragons with full color illustrations. Dragons are organized by size from smallest (1/10th inch) to largest (bigger than a galaxy).

Bookmarks & Prints

Many pledge levels include a set of three metal book marks and four 5x7 prints. These are also available as add-ons. There are two different sets of each to choose from (backers will select which sets they want on their project surveys).

Risks and challenges

I have run and successfully fulfilled over 20 Kickstarter projects. This means I'm experienced with the printers used for the project, and allowing extra time/money for any minor issues that may occur. Backers will receive rewards on time, and usually get them early.
