Welcome to the crowdfunfing campaign for « the ART of De Architecturart »  This project offers to gather, in one book, the different maps already published in De Architecturart, previous publications, a company specialized in adventure settings. These maps are meant to be used for your favourite role playing games and are a perfect inspiration to add some extra spice to your setting. 

As you will see, these illustrated maps and locations are a definitive invitation to adventure. These books have earlier been published in French for the French RPG market. Through this project, we intend to offer an illustration-only book, devoid of any text, being completely universal, whatever the languages you speak or are fluent in. 

Everything DeArchitecturart ever produced (maps, 3D views and so on) will be featured in this one volume. Overall, more than 120 buildings in full color, are yours to obtain. 

The book will be in A4 format and about 180 pages. Let's detail the contents of this upcoming book, if you make it possible:

Featuring 41 maps of various locations such as an inn, a fortified bridge, a restaurant in a mushroom farm. You will find all sorts of maps of the most attended locations set in medieval worlds.

De Architecturart latest project, Longue-Ville, is a gigantic caravan that wanders through the northern steppes, on the back of Kazmoth. They are 12 meter-high animals carrying cabins for travelers on their backs. Maps display the cabins, the trailers but also the cities the caravan goes through.

It seems to me that the most important thing is to always have more plans! Goals will tend towards this!

I am Guillaume Tavernier, the project leader, illustrator and founder of De Architecturart publishing house. A French illustrator, I draw for comics company (petit à petit, Delcourt, Soleil) as well as for tabletop RPG company, whether French or American (Stygian Fox, Black Book edition, Evil Hat). An avid fan of tabetop RPG and maps, I have mixed these two passions by creating De Architecturart, offering adventure settings to French players. I have successfully completed 4 crowdfunding in France so far. The reception of books in France was overwhelmingly positive and I now want to share my work on a wider stage. As I have said: A map can be read by everyone, it is a universal language!

Risks and challenges

All the illustrations are completed (except, of course, those coming with the stretch goals), so the book delivery will be fast! It is scheduled to be sent in March 2019, that is to say in 4 months! My 4 successful crowdfunding in France were also praised for being sent right on time.
All the books will be shipped from France. According to the French postal services, the shipping charges are like so:

France 7 euros

Europe 10 euros

Rest of the world 12 euros
