Exquisite Corpse Dungeon

The Exquisite Corpse Dungeon is a collaborative work made by 12 different dungeon artists. Each one, in turn, drew a segment of this megadungeon with no information about what had already been done, other than a small strip at the bottom of the map so that they knew where the connections should be. The result is a 3' long map with hundreds of passages and rooms.

The idea of the Exquisite Corpse originated with the Surrealists, who used the process to create striking images. For this project, the size of the mapped area each contributor was to draw was pre-arranged (12 rows by 30 columns), and only the last row of the last piece was visible to each artist when their turn came. The entire thing was not revealed until everyone had completed their piece.

The first edition of print copies of the Exquisite Corpse Dungeon were produced to be sent to subscribers of Mythoard as part of the June 2015 hoard.

Copies of the Exquisite Corpse Dungeon print are available (for customers in the US) directly from us through our Antherwyck House store. There is the regular version, which is printed on standard 20# bond paper, as well as the Premium version, which is printed on heavier-weight presentation stock. Both are 8" wide by 36" tall. The regular version is folded for shipping; the Premium version is rolled to try to prevent creasing.

International (non-US) Orders: We are happy to ship to customers outside the US. However, the process is not automated, so you'll need to contact us (orders@antherwyck.com) for specific payment and shipping.
