Carpe Noctem Magazine 20th Anniversary Edition:Dark Art Zine

$4,376

144

FUNDED!! Thank you everyone!! Keep checking www.carpenoctem20.com for the latest news.

STRETCH GOALS ANNOUNCED: I wanted to let everyone know what we will add to this issue if we go over. Please keep spreading the word -- THANK YOU

$5,000 - We will add a four color center spread of additional art by Cliff Nielsen, and two full pages of color photos and/or art. We will upgrade the 5x7" card bonus to 5.5x8.5"

$6,000 - An additional 8 pages of content, which will allow us to include more artists and feature some small businesses.

$7,000 - Every single backer who is receiving a print copy of the magazine will receive TWO! The magazine will retail for $7.95 at this point.

This issue will be printed locally, using the best inks and paper we can so that you get a beautiful magazine to save for decades, with minimal impact to the environment. Don't wait to pledge. We appreciate any help in getting the word out.

In 1994, Catia and Thom Carnell published the first issue of the “dark art journal,” CARPE NOCTEM. Their vision… to bring quality art, insightful interviews, and knowledgeable cd, book, and software reviews to a needful public. With an initial run of 1,000 magazines and one distributor – Tower Records – in their corner, CARPE NOCTEM soon blossomed and print runs increased to numbers that were unheard of in micro-publishers. Within just a few releases, CARPE NOCTEM was available around the world in Tower Records, Hot Topic, Hastings, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and many other outlets.

Contained in the pages of CARPE NOCTEM were features on musicians, artists, writers, and filmmakers – the likes of which were unseen in small press publications. Soon, CARPE NOCTEM became the pre-imminent dark culture publication the world over.

This Kickstarter is to fund the printing of the CARPE NOCTEM 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, and the rewards listed. This commemorative edition is already in production, and will not only catch up with artists we covered in the '90s, but also add entertainers who had not been featured in the pages of CARPE NOCTEM before. Additionally, everyone is invited to submit their memories about that time for possible inclusion in the print issue or on the website.

What's in the issue?

In keeping with the original magazine, the anniversary edition will be 64 black and white pages with 4-color cover and will feature gorgeous cover art by Cliff Nielsen and stunning back cover photography by John Carey

Included within*: Joe Jusko, Christine Pazsitzky, Aurelio VoltaireCaitlin R. KiernanThomas Dodd, Autumn Adamme (Dark Garden Corsetry), Monica Richards, Brian Hodge, Jillian VentersChad Michael WardWilliam FaithPat Ogle, fiction by Stoker Award winning authors Rain Graves, Brian Keene, and Weston Ochse, poetry by Stoker Award winner Linda Addison, and so many more artists and contributors to be announced.

**Just announced: Interview with Famous Monsters of Filmland cover artist Basil Gogos!

To achieve the goal of printing the magazine, we need your help. Please back us in any way you can and spread the word to others. Show the world that print is not dead! Thank you and keep checking our FaceBook page for updates and exclusive photos and videos, https://www.facebook.com/cn20mag

Thanks again, 

Catia and Thom Carnell

Risks and challenges

The only risk after funding would be a significant rise in the initial quote for printing the magazine. On the very remote chance the price would rise that significantly, we would move the printing project to China, which would add shipping time to the fulfillment of the rewards, but would not threaten the completion of the print run.
