Bestiary of Fear from fear of the unknown to fear of being known

An exploratory project that investigates the relationship of illuminated bestiaries and the descriptions they carry of beasts that are unknown yet feared. Progressing into modern times where the beasts transform from the fictional, fantastic, and unknown, this manuscript develops into a more contemporary state where beasts of technology are known but feared.

Cover: silkscreened on masonite and gilded. Inner pages: photo-lithographs on Magnani Velata. Five (5) editions.
