Step into a world that is not our own and yet is?from a time long ago in the here and now.
A vivid visual celebration of fantasy and imagination, the mystical, the marvelous, and the macabre. Welcome to the world of Fourscore Phantasmagores, a bestiary like no other, filled with the fantastical creatures lurking on the fringes of the human mind. Discover monsters and demons and gods in a way only artist Rupert Bottenberg can render?in the style of classic and modern fantasy illustration, retro graphic design, global folk art, op art and pop art, psychedelia, and Saturday-morning cartoons.
