Darkest Dungeon Art Book is off to the printers!

Posted by Tyler Sigman (Creator)

Greetings Backers!

Behold: the Darkest Dungeon Art Book!

We wanted to give you all a quick update on the final physical reward we promised select backer tiers. We’re extremely excited to get it printed - not only does the art book represent the last stage in fulfilling our backer commitments, it’s also an incredible retrospective on the project - showcasing early work, character designs, monsters, backgrounds, cutscenes and promotional material. It’s bigger than we originally scoped, and packed with quotes and comments from the team! As if all that weren’t enough - it opens with a forward written by comics legend and all-around great guy Joe Madureira (Battlechasers:Nightwar/Airship Syndicate). We love it, and we hope you will too.

We spared no expense in the production, either. It’s a large 10x10 inch format, 72 pages(!) perfect bound, with an embossed 130lb cover stock, and beautiful 100lb text stock pages. 

Here is a mock-up of what it will look like after it's printed:

Once we get these back from the printers we will be sending them out via FanGamer much like we did with the dioramas and posters before. When that time comes you will again get a notification email from them asking to confirm your address. 

Thank you so much for your early support. You have been instrumental in helping us make Darkest Dungeon a success.


Hey! My backer tier rewarded me with a digital version of the Art Book, when can I expect to receive my digital copy? 

The digital version of the art book will be sent out at the same time we send out the physical version to our backers. 

Will these be for sale to non-backers?

Yes! After we ship out and fulfill our backer orders we will be selling these on our store page on our website. (Pssst... you can order a Diorama or a cool shirt right now if you want, just sayin...)

How much will the Art Book cost once up for sale?

We don't have a price just yet, so stay tuned for when they release!

      @Zak you can update your shipping address on backerkit and before we ship we will pull address from there.

      Just curious, what art is included in the book itself? Everything from the very beginning concepts to Launch 1.0? Crimson Court? Shieldbreaker? Or even the recently announced Colors of Madness?

      In any case, I'm hyped!

      Any way to update/change my shipping address before the books get sent? I've had an unexpected move.

      @Mark Woo
      We sent it off to the printers and are waiting to hear back on how long they will take to get manufactured and shipped. Once we get a better idea we'll post a new update.

      Any estimation of when it'll be done from the printers and in FanGamers hands?
