The Book of Barely Imagined Beings
A 21st Century Bestiary
From Library Staff
Amazing collection of bizarre animals, gorgeously illustrated, one for each letter of the alphabet. Some really deliciously witty natural history with the bonus of it feeling as if it's an old-fashioned bestiary from the Enlightenment.
Go to a world of real creatures that seem as if they should be made up, that are more astonishing than anything we can imagine. Great combo of cutting-edge natural history, philosophical meditation and wit. A beautiful book to hold and read.
