Encounters with the Imaginary vol 2 is now on kickstarter! This book is an illustration and creative writing anthology inspired by the imaginary—from beloved myths, legends and folktales to new creatures and stories! The result is a fantastic body of work from each artist, created specifically for this volume.
Like last year’s Vol. 1, Encounters with the Imaginary Vol. 2 is a 12″ x 9″ perfect bound soft cover—so the books make a nice matching set! From the beginning, we knew we wanted to create a book that would be a pleasure to read and beautiful to look at—so we have taken care to select good materials and a local printer to ensure this is a book you will love spending time with.
Among the artists, half are returning from last year’s volume …
… and half are new artist jumping into the adventure:
Each of these 22 artists contributed an original short story or poem and a series of illustrations depicting an imaginary creature of their choice, some artists even doing two complete series!
Here is a peak at the illustrations found in this year’s volume:
If this gallery of work intrigues you, get a copy of the book at our kickstarter you will discover all the stories behind these creatures !
You’ll find there that there is more to get than just the book since we already unlocked stretch goals with enamel-pins and metallic miniprints !!
