Brad Barton's Beautiful Monsters

3/9/2018 Update: The project continues to move along ahead of schedule. All 29 Monsters have been photographed and the book has been laid out. We are currently running a survey to pick the cover images – watch this space for an announcement Monday, March 12!

The Kickstarter was a SUCCESS! Beautiful Monsters is going to be a full color book!

Beautiful Monsters was born from a discussion during a Bride of Frankenstein inspired session. We joked about how Monsters were people, too – they just needed love in their life. So we began to brainstorm ideas to create a “Monster Positive” campaign to show the world how beautiful creepy can be.

It is meant to encourage people to take power over their fears – The Dark, Monsters, Spiders, etc. – to take that power back and own it. There is strength inside all of us. I am a Beautiful Monster. Feel my claws. Hear my roar.

The Book

The book is planned to be an 8×10 softcover, perfect bound book with 60 full color, glossy pages. Each of the 29 featured Beautiful Monsters will have a two page spread with their “hero shot” and on the facing page, at least one other image plus a brief, romantic line or two about her.

Expected Shipping Date is June 2018
