The cryptic story of Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Consortia is not always easy to decipher, even for players who have explored the titles from top to bottom. The YouTuber VaatiVidya has made a name for himself over the years for explaining these complex stories and backgrounds in understandable videos.

General is VaatiVidya a familiar face in the Souls community. In recent years he has hosted five art competitions on the various titles from FromSoftware. The results of this are now flowing into a neat artbook that he financed with a campaign on Kickstarter.

Immerse yourself in the art of Dark Souls, Sekiro and Co.

“Soul Arts” is the name of the collectionwho have favourited numerous works of art inspired by Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls (buy now 48,41 €), Bloodborne, Sekiro and Elden Ring. Fans from all over the world have come together in VaatiVidya’s competitions and, despite or perhaps because of the lack of an official connection to the works, have created works of art independently of From Software.

The whole thing is published by Tune & Fairweather, an Irish publisher from Dublin, which also does the Dark Souls-Buch “You Died” has relocated. With 256 pages and the dimensions of 25cm x 30cm, “Soul Arts” is a really big ham. It’s not for nothing that Jason Killingsworth, founder of Tune & Fairweather, calls the project her most ambitious ever.

How to get the fan art book “Soul Arts”

If a digital, DRM-free version of the art book is enough for you, you can get it for just 15 euros. But if you want to hold the chic thing in your hands as a physical copy, you have to have 60 euros ready. Shipping comes on top, here to Germany it costs another 20 euros extra. It’s not cheap, but the artists also have to be paid.

If you have no experience with Kickstarter and are therefore afraid for your money, rest assured: The project cracked the targeted 50,000 euros after a short time, now it is almost 400,000 euros from over 3,600 supporters. If you are interested in the project, you should visit the corresponding Kickstarter page drop by. The campaign will continue for 29 days, but according to VaatiVidya the book will also be available afterwards.
