This book made my face light up with ecstasy. Packed in this 160-page book is a collection of new artwork from Terryl Whitlatch. You won't see any of her Star Wars creatures that appeared in The Wildlife of Star Wars - you should probably get that book as well.

The gallery of art consist of paintings and sketches of real and imagined animals. The designs for the imaginative creatures are beautiful and believable. They are sea, land and flying creatures. Great

Read isn't exactly the right word since the majority of this book was illustrations. Whitlach's artistry and technique is amazing, and the skill is incredible. I just didn't care for the book for several personal reasons. One, the majority of the animals depicted were, to me, gruesome and grotesque. Also, a large section of the middle of the book was only in black and white. When I get a book like this I love to look at color art.

Terryl Whitlach is the artist responsible for one my favorite Star Wars books, "The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide". The art that is on display in this book is pretty amazing. Many pieces that I would love to have framed and hanging on a wall.
I enjoyed the "Real" part more than the "Imagined" part, but both are great. The amount of detail in the art is pretty staggering. She doesn't just draw an animal. She draws the skeletal structure, then the musculature, then the skin and all the
