The Chronicles of Exandria Volume II: The Legend of Vox Machina is the second book of fan art published by the team at Critical Role. It was originally published by Hunters Books & Apparel in November, 2018, and re-issued in slightly modified form on September 26, 2023 by Darrington Press LLC.

Publisher's summary[]

The Chronicles of Exandria Vol. II: The Legend of Vox Machina is our second art book which covers the last half of the story of Vox Machina. Our art book series is truly a labor of love and a celebration of our wonderful community. Each piece of art was created by a member of the Critter community (from all around the world!) and curated and art directed by the cast of Critical Role (with a special shout out to our art dad, Liam O'Brien, and our favorite pyramid goth, Taliesin Jaffe) and our friend Lauryn Ipsum (who also designed the book!)[1]

The second edition summary reads: This coffee table-sized tome features art by 100 community artists, curated and art directed by Lauryn Ipsum as well as Critical Role's Liam O'Brien and Taliesin Jaffe. The cover art by Matteo Scalera and Moreno Dinisio show the epic-level members of Vox Machina geared up for battle against the Whispered One, with his insidious and omnipresent artifacts looming in the background. Inside, each chapter follows an arc of the second half of the Vox Machina campaign, complete with in-world writing from Cobalt Soul archivists. The first half of the story of Vox Machina can be found in The Chronicles of Exandria Volume One: The Tale of Vox Machina (available now), and we're excited to bring this to a close with the second volume![2]
