I Highly recommend to have this small jewel on your library. Not only would you have an amazing piece of work, but you will also be supporting a fellow and very talented illustrator. The format of the book reminds me of Brian Freud and Alan Lee's book "Fairies". The one of an explorer/anthropologist cataloging a new world. I love seeing the different variations of his sketches. His style, characters and imagination are fun to see and read about. I also like the care he took in setting up his book with chapters, descriptions, studies, close ups, sticking to a constant set of lettering, the process and the epilogue. Enjoy the sneak peeks!
