Curator Prime is delighted to announce a new aspect of Vintage Coloring – a Patreon project to create and publish special coloring books to benefit the children’s literacy charity, Kids Need To Read.
UPDATE #4 – April 26, 2018: Due to changing life priorities, Curator Prime has closed her Patreon project. Additional patronage coloring books may be forthcoming, and if so, will be noted on this post. Many, sincere thanks to the patrons who supported this effort for the years it existed.
UPDATE #3 – February 2018: The Art of W. W. Denslow Patronage Vintage Coloring Book, Volume 1 is now available! Many thanks to the patrons who supported this book.
UPDATE #2 – May 2017: The Art of John R. Neill Patronage Vintage Coloring Book, Volume 2 is now available! Many thanks to the patrons who supported this book.
UPDATE #1 – Nov. 2016: The Art of John R. Neill Patronage Vintage Coloring Book, Volume 1 is now available! Many thanks to the patrons who supported this book.
Once published, fifty percent of all royalties from a patronage coloring book will be donated on a monthly basis to KNTR. KNTR is also able to order as many of the patronage coloring books as they wish at cost to sell directly, thereby adding another means of funding for their programs.
Patreon is a crowd-funding system modeled after the patrons of old – people who financially supported artists and writers and other creative endeavors, thus bringing to light works of art for everyone to enjoy. In these modern days, it is not a single individual who is a patron, but many, many individuals who give what they wish in support of causes and creators they believe in.
Curator Prime’s Patreon has five patron levels of support, each with related monthly rewards, though you may pledge however much you wish. This is an on-going adventure, with the first patronage coloring book planned to come out in late October/early November to take advantage of holiday sales.
