Fantastical Beasts Journal


Whether you’re tracking your party’s latest adventure or taking notes in class, this hardcover journal will inspire fantastic—and fantastical—ideas. These images are from early natural history encyclopedias in our Research Library.

As people were learning about the animals and plants found throughout the world, illustrations of dragons, unicorns, and other mythical creatures existed in the same pages alongside realistic horses, oxen, snakes, birds, and many other common animals. Earlier writings suggested the existence of these fanciful animals, and those mistaken ideas were simply replicated in these encyclopedic works.

This hardcover journal offers a wraparound print from front to back, contains 128 lined single pages, and measures approximately 5" x 7.25".
