60 % | New Bookmark, Retailer Tier, and Raffle!

YES!! We're 60% funded.


As promised, here is the brand new bookmark, and with it the finalised set.

A closer look, to appreciate the details.

These bookmarks are exclusively made for The Carpet Merchant Vol I in limited quantities, so be sure to get your hands on them! You can upgrade your pledge anytime.


Libraries, retailers and bookstores are eligible for a Retailer Tier, which enables a special discount for a bulk order plus your company's name listed as supporter of the book. Send an email as described in image below and I'll arrange it!


I'm running a raffle between now and the next milestone at 70%. Every supporter* will automatically enter the raffle. When the book hits 70%, I'll select two winners randomly, and they will each receive an opportunity to upgrade their pledge to either (1) receive a new book (2) obtain another reward (bookmark, pin, signed bookplate, postcards, artist commission), FOR FREE!

If the winners are already supporting the highest tier, they get a new book or another artist commission.

Make sure you share this book campaign, so we can fund quicker, and get the raffle happening.

*excluding retailers/bookstores/bulk order supporters

Again, thank you so much to every one of you has put their support and trust into this book.

Until the next milestone,
