A Natural History of the Fantastic

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $10.00

This 120-page artbook bestiary includes the anatomy, behavior, and origins of over 20 classic fantasy creatures. Each interconnected through a series of recorded histories, myths, and first-hand encounters that can form an essential background to any detailed game world.

Who is this book for?

FANTASY ART LOVERS- This beautifully bound book measures 8x10 and is printed on thick high-quality photo paper. It makes for the perfect conversation starter or coffee table centerpiece for art enthusiasts and aspiring fantasy nerds (like me).

• ANYONE PASSIONATE ABOUT LEARNING ANATOMY OR BIOLOGY-  Learning is fun! And what’s more fun than learning anatomy by studying dragon wings or recognizing the effects of natural-selection on distant goblin populations? Whatever your interests, this book will bring beauty, narrative, and accessibility to the study of biology.

• RPG PLAYERS- This book is a great addition to any gamer’s collection! Use it as the basis for a campaign or an in-game source for enemy weak points, dispositions, and territories. Explore a world populated with rich history, deep lore, and believable monsters.

ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS- Whether you are an aspiring concept designer or a casual student of the human form this book is an invaluable resource for creating your own worlds and original animals that feel more like flesh and blood than fantasy.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
