Calling all Polyhedral Dice Fiends - A book just for us.
Art book “Dice – Rendezvous with Randomness” shares unique photos of everyday objects
Photographer Måns Danneman has creating a photo book featuring dice.
People’s first response when they hear about the project is typically, ’What did you say?’ After they see the pictures, the questions change to ‘When is the book coming out?’ and ‘Can we buy these as prints, too?’”
That change in response after people see his photos, which are all the result of genuine photo shoots and no manipulations in Photoshop afterwards, along with his lifelong love of gaming, is what gave Danneman the confidence to launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise nearly $15,000 by April 11th 2016. He said he let the dice he photographed inspire him.
“The book is an homage to the ultimate symbol of table-top and role-playing-game culture.”
If the kickstarter is successful, “Dice – Rendezvous with Randomness” will be released as a 10-inch by 10-inch, 144 page coffee table book, filled with some of the hundreds of images of dice that he’s taken. The book will be published by Åskfågeln Publishing, run by Tove and Anders Gillbring, who are role playing game developers and publishers. Their company has more than a decade of experience publishing game books and magazines.
