Product Description

The Compendium of Magical Beasts is a definitive field guide that explores the anatomy of mythology’s most elusive creatures, compiling the findings of controversial early twentieth century cryptozoologist, feminist, and explorer Dr. Veronica Wigberht-Blackwater.

Approaching the fantastic with a scientific eye, Dr. Veronica explains the history, habits, and biology of each creature’s existence with equal attention to detail. Her research is accompanied by stunning scientific illustrations of each specimen’s anatomy, providing a comprehensive view of creatures most often dismissed as pure fantasy.

Combining biological fact with folklore, cultural studies, and history, this volume is crucial to science both fringe and mainstream. Locked in a dusty attic for almost a century, Dr. Wigberht-Blackwater’s trailblazing work was recently discovered by writer Melissa Brinks, who spent months transcribing the journals she found.

Brinks joined forces with artist Lily Seika Jones to digitise the doctor’s amazingly detailed anatomical diagrams in order to share these revolutionary findings with the world for the first time.
