Book Description

Dec 30 2008 New Modern Now Library
All-new beasts, with all-new artists! In the spirit of 2007's acclaimed Beasts!, editor/designer Jacob Covey has assembled an entirely new line-up of over 90 artists who did not appear in the first Beasts! volume. Like the first book, the deluxe collection Beasts! Book Two will include a Who's Who of the contemporary art world, collectively crafting a menagerie of mythological creatures, monsters, beasts and things that go bump in the night, superbly laid out in breathtaking two-page spreads per beast. The Beasts! project -comprised only of creatures that were thought at one time to actually exist -has attracted many of the best visual artists from the worlds of comics, skateboarding, rock graphics, science fiction, children's books, commercial and fine art, and the second volume has attracted all world-famous artists such as Gene Deitch, David B. and Yuko Shimizu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy both volumes. April 1 2010
By Pratyeka - Published on Amazon.com
Beasts! volume two is not a continuation of the cryptozoological alphabet from volume one, but instead a second volume of A-Z "hidden beasts". Both volumes show cryptoids in A-Z order by name. Volume two contains work by amazing artists such as Femke Hiemstra, Tomer Hanuka, and Tessar Lo. A personal favorite in this volume was it's depiction of the Deer Woman of the southern U.S., which was portrayed in a medium I wasn't expecting.

That's really the pull of these volumes - seeing cryptoids ouside of their natural art habitat. An Australian monster might be drawn by an artist from Japan, or there may be a work in clay of a creature you've only ever found paintings of - and even that, only rarely.

If you enjoyed volume one, I highly recommend purchasing volume two - not only does it expand the collection of mythical and mystical creatures, but it has a fantastic collection of work from current artists and illustrators.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visual Eye Candy: Part 2! Aug. 21 2011
By J. Wyant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In some ways, I find this book even better than the first - which speaks to the concept and coordination of the project itself. The hard-back edition has a wonderful tactile feel to the cover, which I absolutely love. Again, great for inspiration, entertainment, and conversation. An excellent addition to my collection of inspirational resources.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Edition March 10 2013

I have the first one in soft cover and have always enjoyed it. When I needed a unique gift for a friend, I felt like this would be the perfect addition to his coffee table. This hardcover book is fantastic, with high quality paper and a nice textured cover. The images run the gamut of contemporary art; from creepy to zany. The only reason I give it four stars was that the corners on the covers were a little bit dinged. I didn't have time to send it back (my fault), but it should have been in perfect condition. Now I just wish that I had gotten an extra copy for myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good source of monsters and beasts!! March 15 2014
By Danny R. Steglich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I like this book, however, do you have to draw a line between all out smutty smut or real art? For example, the "Mermaid" and the "Satyr". Come on folks, this has gone a little too far!
