Just received my copy of Walton Ford, Pancha Tantra. This book has quickly become a favorite of mine, I couldn’t recommend this enough with highly detailed watercolours of natural history. The art is amazing and at first glance you don’t immediately spot the slightly disturbing world that Walton Ford places the animals into. Taking inspiration from early natural history illustration from the likes of John James Audubon and Edward Lear and mixing it up with mythology and folklore.
