United States – JULY 21, 2020 – ArtOrder is launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publishing of a book on the fictional mythological creation story of the stars. The new book, Astromythos, is a groundbreaking Mythology based on the tale of how stars were created. ArtOrder intends to realize an $8000 goal with this Kickstarter campaign, which will start on the 30th of July, 2020.
Astromythos is a thrilling fantasy written by award-winning illustrator and professor, Jon Sideriadis. In this richly developed fantasy, Jon Sideriadis writes about how the stars with all their might fight to stay alight, to save each other from becoming extinct. The story’s villains are Black holes; the most destructive force in the world, and those that aim to extinguish the stars, and rob the universe of its light.
The bodies of stars are like humans and humanoids, and they make their homes in nebulae, building castles, towers, bridges, and other medieval structures. Nebulae are their mountains, islands, and even bodies of water. These nebulae are physical, living landscapes, on which comets, stars, moons, meteors, and planets dwell as characters in the book. There are kings, queens, princesses, giants, warriors, monsters, and all of whom have features of different heavenly bodies in space.
In this hauntingly beautiful tale, Jon invites readers to enter into this timeless, mythic world and shares the story of the stars. Astromythos was lovingly produced with page after page of beautifully crafted illustrations, vibrant colors, lifelike images, and graceful figures that will fascinate the readers.
