Tarak Chami, a fan of the Japanese creative's work, far exceeds the initial goal set in Kickstarter: the art book will be a reality.
Tarak Chami, author of the book A Hideo Kojima Book: From Mother Base with Love, has successfully presented his new project on Kickstarter: A Hideo Kojima Book: From Mother Base with Love. This second volume, which seeks to pay tribute to the figure of the creative with his latest video game, Death Stranding, is presented as an art book accompanied by information in tribute to his work.
With more than 50 artists inside, the book will feature illustrations by professionals from around the world; also materials and testimonials from cosplayers, fan community and other expert personalities in the study of Hideo Kojima's work. Chami asked for 4,000 euros to get the book ahead, but in a few days he has reached more than 9,000 euros and more than 190 sponsors. There are still seven days until the campaign ends.
