15 hours left on the Kickstarter!

It passed 1,000 backers! The last stretch goal is HARDCOVER UPGRADE!

Like with previous versions, the books is on sale on a PRE-ORDER BASIS ONLY. All the Aqualumina and Kingdom-Carousel books will be ordered according to how many people want it (with a bit extra in case of lost or damaged books) so this is it. LAST CHANCE!
You'll get a huge discount on the Aqualumina book as well -- it will go up to $35 for all the left over stock!

Update 5/16: KC IS HERE! You can pre-order your copy either as a Kickstarter Add-On, or at our Store!

Here are the details about the 2nd edition:

  • It will not have the gold foil, gold pages, or the box (1st edition exclusives)
  • It will have all artwork that was published in the 1st edition, which means over 120 pages of beautiful original art!
  • It will be edited (some things fixed), the formatting updated, and have a brand new foreword
  • It will be cheaper than the 1st edition

We've had a lot of asks about a reprint over the years, so pass on the word to people you know
Facebook: SHARE
Twitter: RETWEET
Tumblr: REBLOG


We've been asked about a re-print what feels like hundreds of times, and here's our answer:

With the advent of Aqualumina, a not-for-profit Kickstarter, and a team of wonderful people who have helped along the way, we can try to make KC a reality once again!

It's been 4 years since Illycia and vtas first organized and released Kingdom-Carousel Art book. We were able to donate almost $10,000 to charity, an unprecedented amount at the time, and all due to the amazing powers of our supporters here on DA! We answered "No" to a reprint back then because KC had taken hundreds of hours to organize and months of of our lives, so we weren't in any shape to continue ordering and shipping the books.

The Art of Aqualumina Kickstarter just went live - and one of the stretch goals, is to release the 2nd Edition of the Kingdom-Carousel Art Book!

Check it out!

There's tons of beautiful new art as well as new merch (sketchbooks, umbrellas, tote bags, etc), and I can guarantee it worth the visit!

All the profits will benefit, an international charity organization dedicated to bringing safe drinking water and sanitation to those without, so please help us spread the word!

The 2nd edition will have all the artworks that were released in the first edition. More details about the book will be released at a later date (when we are closer to the goal!)!

In the meantime, thank you for all the support over the years and we hope you can help us make KC a reality once again!

Our Purpose

Theme: Life & the Animal Kingdom

All 1st edition copies are SOLD OUT, thanks everyone!

We will print a 2nd edition on PRE-ORDER BASIS ONLY on the Aqualumina Kickstarter!

Artists: You can go ahead and post your artwork and submit it to the group gallery under "full artworks" folder if you wish :)


Our purpose is to make a charity art book and donate 100% of the profits to the charity, St. Jude's Children Research Hospital.

"St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay." This year is their 50th anniversary. (Read more...)

We want to make an art book that will never fail to bring a smile to your face.

This art book is a celebration of life, all the aspects, and pledged to a charity hospital that has been providing fifty years of research and service to helping sick children and their families.


The Kingdom Carousel Art Book is an independent project. It is A4 sized and contains over 120 full-color pages featuring over 120 incredible pieces of art from artists all over dA. While the book is not hardcover, it will come inside a gold-filigreed box, which will be added protection for when it ships. Photos here:…


Feel free to watch the group for updates, such as free giveaways and preview images of the book, and consider donating money to this wonderful charity by buying a copy.

I would join, but it would not let me. :(. I wish I could join. I am a St. Jude outpatient. They helped me be alive today.
