A gem of a book meant for readers’ keeper shelf…
Award-winning author Stephen Barnwell brings forth a fictional reproduction of the famous 1882s Field Guide to Strange Beasts & Curious Creatures and lists 136 strange beasts and curious creatures each with a stunning illustration and complete description. Barnwell’s text is descriptive without being complex, which makes the book a suitable read for all ages. The exuberant typography and the stunning, black-and-white printed Victorian engravings add to the intrigue of the book. The illustrations are artfully done and their uniform size and style give the book a thoroughly organized touch. Together with Barnwell’s detailed descriptions, the whimsical illustrations make the book appealing to even the most reluctant readers. Seasoned fantasy buffs will appreciate the inclusion of many new and lesser-known unheard beasts in the narrative.
