That's right, you saw it on Kickstarter first, and now here it is on the Unkindness Art webstore: presenting the Ekphrastic Beasts artbook, featuring original creature designs and worldbuilding by our very own Ellie Livingston, along with a slew of other super talented artists! From the Ekphrastic Beasts Kickstarter page:
Get ready for a new kind of RPG compendium!
Our project is a full-color fantasy art book, which leads with spectacular artwork from 4 of today's most exciting weird illustrators, that also functions as an artist-created compendium of creatures for the 5th edition of the world's most popular role-playing game!
Rather than revisit known fantasy tropes, we begin with four established illustrators each creating striking, startling, original artworks straight from the abyssal depths of the subconscious. Each piece is then given to our author to reverse engineer creature names, back-stories, and stats for them all!
The result: an artist-created compendium of stunningly illustrated creatures, spirits, and demons which have never seen the light of day or dark of dungeon before!
Hardcover book bound in black linen with gold foil stamped cover
Printed on premium 80 lb gloss paper
130+ pages plus index
Each one in our stock is signed by Ellie Livingston!!
PLEASE NOTE: we have two different versions of this book available for sale--a first-run edition with a glue binding, and a second run edition with a higher quality stitched binding. The books with the glue binding have a small number of loose pages in the very back of the book (see photos for reference), and for this reason we are offering them at a lower price. Please note we cannot accept returns for this version of the book; all sales are final. Thank you!!!
