Pledges start at $25 for a PDF.


The Art Of… Volumes 4-6

THE ART OF… series of books highlight fantastic miniatures artists from around the world, bringing their thoughts and passions to stand alongside their magnificent and inspirational work. We’ll be featuring both individuals and groups in this series, as we explore innovative approaches, studied refinements, and even tangential influences.

These books will be both a celebration of the artist and their art, as well as an opportunity for them to present their thoughts on particular topics and let the world know why they approach their art the way they do. These will not be “How To” books, but rather complements to their existing outlets and work that the artists are already doing.

Pledges start at $30 for a single book and $80 for all three.
