Overview

For this irresistible collection of outrageous visual puns, artist Derek Pell has imaginatively embroidered upon the physical features of familiar animals to produce a mutated menagerie of impossible creatures.
Included are the bald eargull, displaying the head of the national bird and a body comprised of a huge human ear; a beebra (a zebra with bee's wings); a concadillo, combining the aspects of a conch and yes — an armadillo; as well as such absurdities as an eelbarrow from Wheeling, West Virginia; a lighthouse fly from Beacon Hill; a prayhound from Holy Toledo, Ohio; a toot owl from Whistler, Illinois; a vampire brat from Fangor, Maine; and a whelk from Lawrence, Kansas — in all, 60 rib-tickling whatchamacallits.
For those puzzlists unable to determine the names of creatures from their pictures, an identifying label is printed upside down beneath each illustration.

Outrageous, absurd, a true delight by a master of collage.
