I have often been asked since when is the English language version going to be published. Now I hope we can work together to make this possible! I am adding an extra 16 pages to the original format to bring new content, including six bonus pages of conceptual drawings from my sketchbook. Backers of The Charmed Realm have a chance to pre-order a copy of the book below the retail price with additional extras included.
Here is a video made to promote the French edition: The money is still rising so I am now going to stretch our goals! Will expand the page count of the book by adding an extra 8 pages of artwork. Feldspar print Update 2: Due to the amazing response I have had for this project I have now put some more stretch goals in place Celeste print Update 3: I am now putting in place an ambitious new stretch goal This will be full colour printed with gold foil lettering.
So I thought I would let you know how the project is going and about the latest plans I now have in place for The Charmed Realm. After discussions with my printers I can now confirm that these slipcased books will be a Collectors Edition limited to only copies worldwide.
Collectors Editions will have a unique hand-numbered signature page at the front of the book where I will draw my winged snail or dragon. All copies of the book whether Collectors Edition or Standard Edition will also have a gold ribbon marker. I know we can do it! With just eight days to go we are now coming to the 'final push' on The Charmed Realm Kickstarter campaign.
Here is the latest news on the project: Despite reaching the final target, funds have continued to grow which is allowing me to further increase the production values of the book: All in all, through your help, The Charmed Realm is going to be a very beautiful book, and whether you have pledged for a Standard Edition or a Collectors Edition you can feel proud to have been instrumental in it's creation and I am very grateful to you all. Here is the proof of the cover ready for printing: Please keep spreading the word so that as many people as possible have a chance to make their pledge and take advantage of the portfolio of signed bonus prints and free postage on offer with every copy of the book before the campaign closes on the 31st of August.
Thank you for your on-going support, all the best, Paul Risks and challenges This is a low risk project because the artwork is already produced by myself with the exception of some new bonus content. The text is also written by my wife, Vanessa Kidby. Permissions have been sought and are already in place from the original French Publisher, Daniel Maghen and the project has been costed and pricing agreed with my printers. If, in the unlikely event, the book publication date is set back later than October we will let you know, and hope you will be understanding if we have unforeseen delays at the printers.
Otherwise we anticipate no problems! Thank you for your interest and continued support of my work. Questions about this project?
