Hello dear backers!

We are super glad to announce we opened the pre-order for 'The Art of Luoman' artbook and it will last 20 days. This way, we hope to reach our last stretch goal of 49k so everyone could have their book with the gold foil cover!


General update

In a couple of weeks, we will send you the surveys. Right now we are still waiting for the funds to reach us and then we will start with the overall production. 

Thank you so much for your support!



The Art of Luoman FUNDED! Thank you + FAQs
28 days ago – Fri, Apr 16, 2021 at 02:37:35 AM

Hello dear backer and followers!

The Art of Luoman campaign has come to an end and we wanted to thank you for the enormous trust you have given us once again.

We will do our best to bring The Art of Luoman book to your homes on time. We are about to finish the interior graphics and in the next two weeks we will take care of preparing the graphics of the merchandise.

In the meantime we want to take the opportunity to answer some FAQs.

When can I enter my home address?

In a couple of weeks, we will send all backers a survey to fill out through BackerKit in which we will ask you for your home  address. You will also have the option to purchase other add-ons, including additional shipping options if you want to select a PO box as address.

Do you ship to PO boxes?

Yes, we can ship to PO boxes but for an additional fee. If you want us to ship your volumes to a PO box, you will need to select the 'Priority shipping' add-on option.

Will digital downloads expire in a month (like last time)?

This time we will send the Ebooks via BackerKit, and the links will never expire. Not bad, right? 

What can i do if i am about to move?

If you have to move, we recommend that you wait to complete the survey until you are ready to receive the book. We will contact you later to process your order.

Will the book be available on your store?

Of course! We will open pre-orders just before sending the volume to print.

I forgot to buy the add-ons. How can I do?

You will find a link to the add-ons on the new BackerKit survey, just after the address confirmation. This way, you can change your shipping options or add our previous publications to your order.

I would like to buy your older Ebooks but there are no add-ons for them. How can I get them?

You can find all our Ebooks - without additional fees - on our STORE.

I am a bookshop and I would like to buy your book with a discount. It's possible?

Of course! Contact us at this email to talk about it:

We hope we have answered all your questions!

We thank you for your support and are ready to roll up our sleeves.

505% funded! Thank you so much!

The Art of Luoman reached +30k and over 500 backers. 

Thank you so much everyone for your support. It means a lot!

There are -6k left to unlock the next stretch goal. If we reach it, every backer who pledge for a physical copy will also get a custom shaped holographic sticker like the one below.

Also the inner graphic is almost done!

The final page number will be 96 and the inner graphic is almost done. We will just need some texts by Luoman as intro for certain part and it will be done! Then, everything will be delivered to our betareader for the proofreading. Here is how it looks now!

Sample of the graphic on Indesign, texts are not final.

Wanna help us unlock more freebies?

There are still 14 days left to back the campaign.  Share it with your friends and help us unlock the gold foiled cover and cool freebies!
