Darkly brilliant, this collection of curios and drawings is like a mashup of Edgar Allan Poe, Dr. Moreau and Frankenstein’s friends.
Part biography, part gallery, for the first time in history we have full uncensored access to the infamous Dr Black’s magnum opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia: a detailed anatomical study of the world’s most mythological creatures.
Featuring journals, correspondence and illustrations previously thought lost to the world of science, The Resurrectionist provides a remarkable glimpse into the life of this prodigal madman.
Presented in gorgeous hardcover, this tome is a terrifically grotesque gift for fantasy fans.
Dr Black is not a real doctor and *most* of these creatures are unconfirmed
Incredible anatomical illustrations of some of our most celebrated mythological creatures
Revised biography of the good doctor, including his time as a student and many of his research trips
Gorgeously presented in hardcover
Written and drawn by E.B. Hudspeth
Measures approximately 20cm(W) x 28cm(H) x 2cm(D)
An excellent book. I am now a believer in the existence of these now extinct mythical beasts.
