ORLANDO, Fla. - Oct. 1, 2018 - PRLog -- Today Artist Assets LLC and The Book of Fae announced the simultaneous launch of the highly anticipated BookOfFae.com web site and a Kickstarter funding event. The Book of Fae is a series of high-fantasy illustrated stories and books, both in printed form and in an online format. These stories feature mythical deities, fairies, dragons, and other fantastical creatures. On The Book of Fae's roadmap there are no less than 20 graphical books and two playable story-driven role playing games scheduled. According to the founder, Rick Merriman, "We have chosen to have a Kickstarter crowdfunding event to speed the release of all the content we have initially planned to release." Each book in the series will be superbly illustrated with approximately half the pages being full color plates.

"World building" a never-ending-story

From the onset, The Book of Fae was designed to be a never-ending collection of art, tales, lore, and legends. Later this year the storyline will be opened to independent writers, artists, and editors to contribute to an ever evolving, ever growing world. Most of the lore and world backstories have been written over the last 20-years. According to Rick, "before we open the world to any who would like to participate we need to get all this information and content available and published so our future writers and artists have a base to work from. This is the main reason we have chosen to partially fund the project via Kickstarter."

Artists and writers need a revenue stream

Much of this project is based on a concept the founder calls "Open Source Creativity, or OSC." Though there are many aspects of OSC, at its core it is a way for indie fantasy artists and writers to generate an income from their passion by building upon each other's work. "There is a tremendous wealth of unknown talent out there," says Merriman who has been involved in the online fantasy writing and art scene since the 1990's. "I hope to provide a place where these artists can generate an income instead of eking out an existence in a 9-5 job they hate."

Quality fantasy art and stories

Though providing visual artists and writers a way to generate income is a major concern, it may be dwarfed by the desire that all content is of the highest quality for the audience of both the book series and the online presence. "This is priority number one" says Merriman.

Will Book of Fae become a cult classic?

With quality illustrated stories in a format of never-ending and always-growing storylines, Rick was asked if he thought The Book of Fae may one day become a cult classic, the likes of Lord of the Rings or Star Wars. He simply smiled and replied, "Ask me that again in a year or two."
