      Description
      Iceland is a country of striking and sometimes surreal beauty is matched by its rich and extensive folklore. Since time immemorial, Icelanders have told tales of strange encounters and experiences they have had while on their travels. From the extraordinary Finngálkn, a halfbreed of man and beast to the Kráki, a giant octopus that preys on trawlers and oil rigs, Icelandic folklore is riddled with fantastic tales that expound natural phenomenon and circumstances with many peculiar supernatural creatures that make up the myth and legend of Iceland. Take these tales, passed down from generation to generation throughout the centuries, make with them what you will and share them again. First published in Iceland as Duldýrasafnið, The Museum of Hidden Beings is now available in English, worldwide, so that the creatures of Iceland legend might knock on new doors.
      Bio

      Description
      Picturebook, unusual alphabet book In an old house, you'll find spiders, mice, and dust. But in the oldest houses you'll find things far worse than bugs. A house that's lived enough years will gather in its eaves a crew of several monstrous things that settle and won't leave. They moan and scratch and knock the walls. They rattle in the drains. When little humans shake with fear, they think, "Well, that was a very fun game!" For monstrous beasts love nothing more than a good old-fashioned fright. They love to play with their beloved friends in the darkest hours of night. But as houses get older, their children do, too. And that creatures don't like in the least. Because the older kids get the less they believe in their moaning, groaning feats. And soon all those creatures are simply left in a household of unloved beasts. Playful, alliterative text highlights one monstrous ghoul after another takes readers through the alphabet and into the corners and crannies of an old house peopled with sad and unwanted monsters lamenting the loss of their playmates. Until one of them realizes there are more ways than one to have their fearful fun.

      Description
      "My first thought upon seeing Welsh Monsters & Mythical Beasts was ‘Goodness, what a useful book!' A must-have guide to those creatures you hope never to encounter except in story and imagination." - John Howe Upon the dramatic landscape of the Isle of Wales there have been born many creatures and beings of legend. This lushly illustrated guide delves into the dragons, beasts, fair folk, and spirits of Wales. Tales become blended and one with history, and this history meets illustration with C.C.J. Ellis' rich renderings of these creatures. Detail and colour lift these beings off the page and bring this compendium to life. Now available worldwide, this new edition includes a Welsh language guide so that each of the creatures might be known by their original Welsh names. You may have heard of the Red Dragon (Ddraig Goch) featured on the national flag of Wales, but have you heard of the Water Leaper (Llamhigyn Y Dwr) or of the Mary White (Mari Lwyd)? C.C.J. aims to re-introduce the beasts of Welsh myth and legend to the world and bring a touch of Wales to your shelves.

      Description
      Art book, local Canadian artist, creepy/off-beat horror art "Kamila is a cornucopia of dreadfulness. Her works at once beautiful and terrible, each piece like being tickled by Death's cold little fingers, every bewitching creation a world I want to know more about." - Gerald Brom Welcome to the art and mind of Kamila Mlynarczyk (better known as @WoodedWoods). This book houses a collection of Kamila's art (some from online and some not) created from 2017 - 2019 and charts her progression into illustration art from her most famous Art Dolls. She describes her fascinating creative process and many of the inspirations behind her countless creepy, unsettling, yet poignant (and often hilarious) sketches. The writing describes the rhyme and reason behind why everyone needs a little snail friend, why cute poops make this world a better place, and why werewolves always hesitate before devouring the sacrificial girl-child. To Kamila, nothing fictional can ever be as frightening as reality, and so much of her inspiration comes from the right here and now. She strives to depict the most terrible things in a sympathetic light, and in that way they become more beautiful than reality, more light-hearted than realistically possible, and through their relatability they become cheeky and charming-they become cathartic.
      Bio
      Kamila Mlynarczyk is an Ontario-based artist that made a name for herself with her Art Dolls. Her fresh, if gruesome, creations have been showcased internationally and she has garnered a sizeable online following. Kamila has always worked in various mediums, but over the past five years she has been what she terms "re-learning how to draw" and drawing relentlessly. I can be myself when everyone I know is dead... follows her personal and public (through online presence) journey from Art Dolls through re-learning how to draw, to absurd character studies, to completed scenes. Kamila draws inspiration from her life and from reality as nothing fictional can ever frighten us in the same way that reality can. She strives to depicting the most terrible things in a sympathetic light, and in that way they become light-hearted, they become cathartic, they become freeing.
