A few years ago, Metal Gear and Kojima fan Tarak Chami self-pusblished a book paying tribute to Metal Gear and its creator. The book, titled A Hideo Kojima Book: From Mother Base with Love, contained fan art by several talented artists, cosplayers, a look at the various Metal Gear communities around the world (including this one!) and some words by people involved in the series.
Now a few years have passed, and Kojima released his latest, and first project as an independent creator. Tarak is currently working on a follow up of the book, focussing on Death Stranding and the passionate community that surrounds it. The book will be called A Hideo Kojima Book Chapter 2: Tomorrow is in your hands, and Tarak kindly provided us with some sample pages.
More than 3 years later I’m ready to write the second chapter of this amazing project.

Update August 14th: The foreword for the book has been released, and is now available to read.
