Alexandria's Vault was created by brothers Dan and Brandon who stumbled into the world of collecting fantasy art after years of seeing it in the games they loved.
Our mission is to expand the world of fantasy art collecting by:
- Sharing original research, thought pieces, and articles on collecting and
- Lowering some of the barriers to acquiring and starting your own collection by offering purchases with payments over time.. or all at once!
Longtime fans (though some might say"nerds") of board games, trading card games, and videogames, Dan was searching for cards on eBay one day when he saw a piece of original Magic: The Gathering art for sale.
"Woah," he thought, "Doesn't Wizards of the Coast own and keep all this artwork stashed deep in their cellars? Regular people can BUY and OWN some of the iconic images of cards they grew up playing?"
After a bit more rigorous research (google), he found a facebook group of collectors who welcomed him into their ranks. Like a good brother, Dan encouraged Brandon to join these groups as well!
For months, they watched the groups and became more and more amazed at what a thoughtful and caring community they had found! Artists themselves would often post and share information about their work.
Collectors would help othe collectors find orginal art and "Grail" pieces theyhad been searching for. Some would even help raise funds for artists who needed medical or other help.
