Unseen Bestiary

Looking forward to Lindsey Carr's drawings over at the Unseen Bestiary. Her work is truly magical!

What I love about bestiaries is that they show a fundamental relationship between humans and the world. Who could hear about or see a magnificent creature for the first time (for example, the buffalo of North America) and not create a whole mythology around it?
