<> The world of Greenlandic mythology is inhabited by a motley crew of dangerous, cheeky, and fantastical beings that have played a vital role in Inuit beliefs and stories throughout the ages. The Bestiarium brings together Greenlandic history, myth, and culture. It is a collection of what is generally known about these diverse beings, spirits, and animals, their stories and descriptions are paired with illustrations by various Greenlandic illustrators. A brief history of Greenland and the shaman tradition launches the reader into the ancient world of Greenland and how myth and legend told through generations mold and depict a place that was dark and grim, but also mischievous and lively. Now available in North America, this edition of the book features a publisher introduction by Neil Christopher and a re-translated and edited chapter on "Shamans, witches, and witchcraft" by Robin Fenrir Mansa Hillestrøm. Illustrations by contemporary Greenlandic and Nordic artists transport the mythological beings into the 21st Century.

Maria Bach Kreutzmann was born and bred in Nuuk, and has been fascinated by monsters ever since she was a little girl. She has used Greenlandic mythology and all its colourful creatures in many of her personal projects and has long dreamt of sharing greenlandic stories in a new and unique way. She graduated from the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Graphics Art. Since then she has worked in the gaming and advertising industry in Denmark and the UK. In January 2017 she moved back to Nuuk, and has since then worked on the Greenlandic film, culture, and literature scene as an illustrator and project manager with her company, Glaciem House.
