About


Inspired by John Bunyan's beloved story, "The Pilgrim's Progress," Paul Cox (creator of RefToons) and his wife, Stephanie, guide young readers through an incredible, poetic journey, filled with inspiring illustrations of the trials and triumphs of one man's pilgrimage.

This simplified picture book of Bunyan's classic is 95% finished.  The next steps are editing and funding.  To secure your hardcover copy of The Pilgrim's Progress: A Poetic Journey, this campaign needs to be funded at $25,000.  This covers fees for the creators, editors, ISBN number, Kickstarter fees, cost of printing, and first class shipping and handling.

Risks and challenges

The pages will need to be edited and printed. Cover art still needs to be completed, which will be finished before the end of the campaign. Upon a successful campaign, it will be two weeks before I receive the funds to purchase the books. During this time, I will hire an editor to review the content and layout. Once revisions are complete, the order will be placed. It will be another 4-6 weeks before I receive a proof of the book. Once the proof is approved, there will be another couple of weeks before we receive the mass shipment. Shipping and handling may add an additional 5-10 business days.
