Hello!


I'm Jack Fallows and back in March 2017 I started hands-down the most ambitious self-publishing project of my 16+ years making small press comics, zines, music and games; the project is called Cryptogram Puzzle Post, and it's a monthly puzzle story which follows a young witch called Anna as she navigates the mysteries of a world not unlike our own.

Each month I write, design and illustrate a new envelope filled with pages of codes, riddles, ciphers, maps, spells, illusions and brain-teasers. It takes a massive amount of time and work to put together but I come from the DIY-or-die school of thought and retaining creative control of every meticulous aspect of the project allows me to realise my ideas without compromise. This is only possible, however, with the on-going support of my amazing readers, stockists and Patreon subscribers!

So this page is your chance to get involved. As well as being able to subscribe to the print series, you also get to peek behind the curtain of this multi-faceted art experiment. I'll be posting advanced digital downloads of each issue as they're completed, process pictures/videos, links to resources I've used for reference and inspiration, news on future plans, a regular music feature called 'Cryptophone', extra tid-bits and exclusive offers and giveaways with you all. 

New features are being added all the time and different rewards are available depending on what you'd like to pledge; and however much that may be, thank you so much in advance. I really couldn't do this without you!

You'll get all the benefits of the preceding tiers, as well as a named Thank You printed in the next issue of Cryptogram.

Goals
61% complete
If we can reach this goal, I will be able to:

  • Cover all the basic outgoings of the project such a printing, shipping and paying folks to help with assembly
  • Create Cryptogram to a tighter schedule 
  • Better bridge the gap between UK and overseas readers
  • Continue growing Cryptogram as a project and adding new features to the series and this campaign 
  • Sleep better at night
