Beasts! compilation of art where different artists presents their own interpretation of beasts, monsters and other foul creatures.
The result is a book of incredible variety of artistic style. Some of the beasts are based on folklore while others are created from pure imagination. The captions explain the origins.
Here's the product description from Amazon:
