Scary Stories and Pictures For Children and Adults
Here is a really cool project. Underneath the Juniper Tree is an online children's literature and art magazine full of deliciously dark tales and illustrations aimed at kids. You can read issues of the magazine here. While I really love the idea of a magazine that releases the monsters back under the bed and mysteriously taps at the windowpane in the middle of the night, reading from a computer screen is no substitute for reading an actual bound paper volume under the covers with a flashlight.
It just so happens that Underneath the Juniper Tree wants to publish a beautiful, physical, paper anthology of spooky art and stories. To do so they are looking for some bold patrons of the arts and literature to help them out by contributing to their fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. They have a number of cool incentives and a video giving a glimpse of the beautiful object that the Underneath the Juniper Tree anthology can become if their goals are met. Take a look here, and, please, pledge if you can. Every dollar counts.
