The Cloud Thieves by Rob Bridges

The Cloud Thieves

“And there they were… the motley lot of them. With hooks and rope and home crafted balloons, they set about their plans to overtake the clouds that hung lazily off of the Salt Sea coast. It was in need of provisions for the coming dry seasons that brought them to such plans but soon greed took them. All the while they hadn’t counted on the rumblings within father Stratus that would change the tide of things…”

That Which We Do Not Understand: 10th anniversary limited edition book and fine art prints from Amelia’s Magazine.

twwdnu-amelia-gregory

Amelia’s Magazine is 10 years old this year, and to celebrate I’m going back into a print! Grab your #earlybird copy of #TWWDNU limited edition artists book now!

Amelia’s Magazine was a printed magazine for 5 years but is currently a web only magazine which does not take any advertising or sponsored posts. Therefore, in order to make this happen money is being raised through the Kickstarter crowd funding website. This is very exciting and nerve-wracking, because the entire amount of money must be raised in order to receive any of it. To raise up the goal, a limited edition of real gold foil prints are selling on kickstarter, such the Ver Sacrum by Cristian Grossi.
