Jason Soles is best known as the lead developer and designer of Privateer Press' award-winning miniatures war-games, WARMACHINE and HORDES, but he is also an accomplished and renowned sculptor. For almost two decades Soles has produced an array of unsettling works in a variety of mediums.
APOCRYPHA: The Art of Jason Soles collects hundreds of photos of his works for the first time. This premium edition art book is 9 x 12", approximately 125 pages, features a beautiful matte hardcover with spot gloss treatments, and is bound with Smyth sewn binding allowing it to be opened and lain flat to fully display its full color photographs. Created in collaboration with Strix Publishing, and including a foreword by noted artist George Higham, this book will be a stunning addition to the collection of any connoisseur of the dark arts.
For over a decade Soles has tirelessly refined his craft. His earliest sculptures were assemblage pieces cobbled together from old anatomy models, wire, found objects, and, invariably, fragments of tooth and bone. Clay has long since become his favorite sculpting medium, specifically oil or wax-based clay. In time he began reproducing his works in plaster and polyurethane resin, and, ultimately, lost wax casting in bronze.
APOCRYPHA: The Art of Jason Soles is included with all rewards starting at the $45 reward level. This book is expected to retail for $49.99, and we are pleased to be able to make it available at a lower price for our Kickstarter backers. All rewards that include the physical book also include a digital eBook version. The digital edition is also available alone as a reward at the $30 level, and has been made available primarily for international backers who wish to support this Kickstarter but are unable to afford international shipping.

Risks and challenges
Any publishing endeavor carries with it certain challenges, particularly when dealing with overseas printers. Last minute typographical errors during final proofing or shipping delays caused by weather can result in delays. However, the main work on this book has been completed and the files are nearly press ready. We expect no significant problems in the production of our print run. As well, I, as owner of Strix Publishing, have several years of experience with Kickstarter both in terms of campaigns and rewards fulfillment, and am supported by a team of professionals with decades of experience in printing and publishing. I have previously overseen four ambitious Kickstarters with thousands of satisfied backers. While I am very confident in my ability to fulfill your pledges, I will maintain transparency throughout the process and keep you informed as to any delays that may arise. I understand that you are placing not just your trust in my hands, but your hard earned dollars, and I am committed to making good on my promises. Thank you so much for your trust and support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
