Rizzoli Italia and Rizzoli New York published their first NFT book, Crypto Art - Begins, to bridge the gap between printed media and Web3-powered digital content.
Crypto Art - Begins is a physical and digital project that aims to chronicle the events that led to the creation of The NFT Magazine. The book highlights Crypto Art's beginning using illustrations from 50 NFT artists, including DADA.ART, Giant Swan, HACKATAO, OSINACHI, and others.
Crypto Art - Begins details the aspirations and visions of the NFT artists and depicts the complexities of the NFT world whose potential remains undiscovered.
The book is scheduled for release in Italy on November 8, 2022, and will be available in the United States sometime in Spring 2023.
Holders of Crypto Art - Begins will receive an exclusive NFT that grants access to physical and digital experiences. The pre-sale of the NFTs will begin on September 19 on Nifty Gateway, an NFT marketplace.
The NFT Magazine will also release a special collectible edition of the book entirely exclusively in NFT, along with a unique physical edition that features a black cover and exclusive packaging.
The collectors will also be entitled to other benefits, including access to a virtual exhibition on the Nemesis platform and events and shows with the artists behind the book.
The NFT Magazine is the world’s first magazine that could be read and collected on the Ethereum blockchain.
Focusing on the latest trends of the NFT market, the cover of each issue of The NFT Magazine acts as a collectible and is designed by a renowned NFT artist. By linking their MetaMask wallets, owners of The NFT Magazine's covers are granted membership to The Readers Club, where they can receive exclusive community benefits.
