Of all the characters on AMC's hit zombie drama "The Walking Dead," it's safe to say that Daryl Dixon receives the most love from fans. The Southern expert tracker, played by actor Norman Reedus, is regularly celebrated in fan art that can be found in forums and sites all around the web. As a way of saying thank you for such a creative following, Reedus will publish the best art work he's received in a new book called "Thanks for all the Niceness."

"'Thanks for all the Niceness' is Norman’s way to show his gratitude in a compilation of sometimes hilarious, sometimes sinister, but always fascinating artwork made by his fans," his website states. "This is not your average display of fan artwork. Created in every thinkable medium, the Norman/Daryl archetype is captured in tattoo designs, cakes, pencil sketches, mosaics, chalk drawings, digital art, and even children sketches from his youngest fans."

Reedus, 45, will release the book under his self-publishing house Big Bald Books. Proceeds from the sales will benefit the The Bachmann Strauss Dystonia and Parkinson Foundation; a charity that seeks "treatments and cures for the movement disorders dystonia and Parkinson's disease."

According to Reedus, a close friend of his currently suffers from dystonia, which causes uncontrollable painful spams in different parts of the body. "By buying this book, you are truly helping and I thank you for joining me in shedding light on this important cause," he adds. 

You can preorder "Thanks for all the Niceness" for $60 here. "The Walking Dead" returns for Season Five on October 12th.
