After having released a PDF file of the Art of Tokaido to the backers of the first Tokaido Collector's edition campaign, we received so many demands for a physical edition of the book that we decided to create this campaign to help this project to come to life.
Tokaido is a very special title for us as it is for a lot of gamers all around and so we decided to honor it as well as the stellar work of it's artist Naïade and it's Art director Philippe Nouhra through this KS-exclusive hard cover edition* of the book.
Admire, gathered in a single work for the very first time, all of the original graphical creations and all of the illustrations that make the singular universe of Tokaido. Slip behind the scenes of the creation of the cards, the characters, the expansions, and even the video game. Also discover the “rejects” of Tokaido, all those ideas that never progressed beyond a rough state, but just as easily could have walked the magical road along the East Sea.
* A soft cover might (or might not) come to the retail distribution network later on but neither the hard-cover nor the Prestige edition would be released outside Kickstarter.
In this KS-exclusive hard cover edition of the artbook of 240 pages, dive into Naïade's graphical universe to discover the magic behind the game.
Book dimensions are landscape A4 (closed - so double landscape A4 open).
Be part of the lucky ones to own the Prestige edition of the book (same dimensions as the hard cover edition), including:
- a KS-exclusive UV-varnished slipcase
- a PLAYABLE (and fully compatible with the game) KS_exclusive alternative character tile "Myiamoto the Ronin)*
- a numbered certificate
- an ex-libris Giclee of the art cover.
*The character tile is the exact same size and quality than the ones originally included in the game.
As this campaign would reach new level of success, several stretch goals would be unlocked, all of them to be Kickstarter Exclusives, such as:
- Character bookmarks: these nice paper bookmarks are printed with all the characters of the game and its expansions. They come in bundles of 5 characters each.
- Book jacket: to protect your Artbook, a beautiful jacket displaying the full-framed cover artwork.
- PRESTIGE EDITION ONLY: Exclusive playable alternative art character tiles:
On top of the initial alternative Ronin character tile, take the chance (depending on this campaign's success level) to put your hands on several others KS-exclusive collector playable character tiles containing alternative - and never published before - artworks.*
*upon Stretch goal unlocking - these stretch goals does not apply to the hard cover pledge, but to the Prestige edition ONLY. The character tiles are the exact same size and quality than the ones originally included in the game.
- A full deck of 54 Tokaido themed regular cards (poker size - 6.3 x 8.8 cm):
Never would you play poker with such a beautifully zen deck of cards! :)
