HYPE: The Return of The Chronicles of Exandria Vol. I: The Tale of Vox Machina Art Book!

Written by on March 17, 2023

Be still, our art hearts—Darrington Press is reprinting our Vox Machina art book, The Chronicles of Exandria Vol. I: The Tale of Vox Machina! This volume collects over 250 pages of art from Critters around the world, curated and art directed by Lauryn Ipsum as well as our own Liam O’Brien and Taliesin Jaffe.

Later this year, Darrington Press will also reprint the final art book in the Vox Machina series, The Chronicles of Exandria Vol. 2: The Legend of Vox Machina. Both of these books are filled to the brim with wondrous illustrations by artists from the international fan community, and have long been out of print. They are part of our Chronicles of Exandria art book series, which also includes The Chronicles of Exandria—The Mighty Nein published by our friends at Dark Horse!

With in-world commentary by the Cobalt Soul archivists of Exandria, this book devotes its first chapters of gorgeous illustrations to each member of Vox Machina. Later chapters take you on a whirlwind tour of the first half of the campaign, bringing the story’s arcs to vivid life through its artwork. The Chronicles of Exandria Vol. I: The Tale of Vox Machina will serve as a treasured companion to all who come to love these characters and their adventures.

The Chronicles of Exandria Vol. I: The Tale of Vox Machina received a minor refresh and has 5 pieces of new-to-the-book artwork, and we’re happy to bring it back into availability!
