Last year, Yuko Ota, Becky Dreistadt, KC Green, and Evan Dahm came together like Voltron to publish art books under the independent creator owned imprint, Benign Kingdom. Funded through Kickstarter, the venture was wildly successful. I’ve got the hardcover edition of last year’s collection and it’s absolutely gorgeous.
This year, Benign Kingdom returns with artists Danielle Corsetto, Aaron Diaz, Anthony Clark, and Emmy Cierega for the Fall 2012 Art Book. The project is already funded so at this point, it kind of functions more like a pre-order. I highly recommend the hardcover. It collects all the books from the four artists and if it’s anything like last year’s, it’s an absolutely gorgeous piece for your shelf.
It’s an extremely talented lineup and you get to see them do what they do best. I can’t wait til they start shipping in the fall! Head on over to Kickstarter to get your pre-order in.
