Description
 
From controversial cryptozoologist and explorer Dr. Veronica Wigberht-Blackwater, The Compendium of Magical Beasts is a definitive field guide that explores the history, biology, and anatomy of mythological creatures.

Approaching the fantastic with a scientific eye, Dr. Wigberht-Blackwater explains the history, habits, and biology of each creatures existence with equal attention to detail. Her research is accompanied by stunning scientific illustrations of each specimens 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-Blackwaters 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 digitize the doctors amazingly detailed anatomical diagrams in order to share these revolutionary findings with the world for the first time.
