Now The Art of Solomon Kane Can Be Yours

Thanks to the energy and support of our enthusiastic backers, the art of the talented Guillem H. Pongiluppi will now be immortalised in a truly gorgeous hardcover Art Book of Solomon.

(pour retrouver cet update en français, cliquez ici)

With the Stretch Goals and Add-Ons for Solomon Kane, we created gameplay focused additions to give backers as much content as we possibly could.

Throughout the campaign though, we have had requests from so many of you for something special to celebrate the art found in Solomon Kane.

We also had a simply incredible response to our Social Stretch Goals which saw four A3 Art Prints added to every single Core Box. With this level of community response, we just had to create something to match your level of passion.

This will be embodied in the hardback Art Book of Solomon Add-On.

Solomon will, of course, feature prominently in its pages, depicting his hardships, his adventures and his times of triumph over the forces of darkness.

The Art Book will focus not only on the hero Solomon himself but also the world in which his adventures took place.

Explore Africa, France, Germany, England and the “New World” as you delve into the locations that Solomon traversed.

We’ll also be including our own overviews and some of the key quotes taken directly from Robert E. Howard’s writing that helped to inspire the artwork you’ll find inside.

Fans of the stories will also find scenes taken directly from the books, realised in a captivating and inspiring style to fuel your imagination.

Robert E Howard fans can even pick up the Art Book on its own as a single Add-On during the Pledge Manager if you’re just after that special piece of Solomon Kane memorabilia.

The Art Book will have both English and French text.

Tonight, Saturday 23rd June, at 8pm CEST / 7pm BST / 2pm EDT we’ll have Leo live from Paris along with Patrice Louinet, our resident Robert E. Howard expert, to talk about Howard Days, the art that has been created for our game and the importance of it to the legacy of Solomon Kane.

      The art is fantastic. Very evocative. I'm loving everything I've seen so far. However, I hate when art books are created that don't respect the very art they are seeking to present by splitting art across pages. Please consider a larger format and shifting the to landscape format.

      I'm Never pledging for Artbooks in game which seems like dust gatherer to me, but this art is so insanely beautiful I'll get it anyway! The illustrator is a talented monster

      If the book has A4 format, and some/most of the pictures are for 2 pages, how about double the size of book and lower number of pages half?

      Oh, thank goodness! I LOVE having art books of games where the art is this damn beautiful. It also helps when trying to paint the minis. Good add-on! I am assuming this will be in the final All-In Pledge?

      Mes vœux ont été exaucé, merci MG et bien sûr Guillem H. Pongiluppi pour ces magnifiques illustration :).

      Oh man, this is one gorgeous book, which I'll proudly have in my art bookcase! So atmospheric, so rich and vibrant! Now when I read Solomon's adventures on my Kindle I'll have the artbook beside it! Thank you so much for your ethereal talent, Guillem!

      Oh mec, c'est un livre magnifique, que je vais avoir fièrement dans ma bibliothèque d'art! Si atmosphérique, si riche et dynamique! Maintenant, quand je lis les aventures de Solomon sur mon Kindle, je vais avoir le livre d'art à côté! Merci beaucoup pour votre talent éthéré, Guillem!
