Gryphonology Zine (A5) The pocket guide to griffins of the world
Dispatches from a small business in
Griffins are majestic and fearsome animals, revered by many cultures around the world. However few know of the vast variety of species that actually exist and have adapted to all kinds of climates, from rainforests to the arctic circle. This pocket guide gives an introduction to some of the griffins so far discovered!
Griffin-like creatures are found in many different cultures dating back thousands of years. I imagined how species of griffin could have adapted to live in different climates across the globe. All my griffins are based on real animals that live in the same part of the world, for example, the Himalayan griffin is half bearded vulture and half snow leopard, both of which can be found in this region. Most of the facts are also gleaned from these animals, with a little exaggeration and magic thrown in of course!
This zine is 20 pages long and made at A5 size (approx 21cm x 14.8cm). It is printed in the UK on FSC certified papers. The cover is printed on 300gsm silk finish card, and the inside pages are printed on 130gsm silk finish paper.

This book is amazing. The art is beautiful, and the information truly brought me into this little world the artist has built. Whilst most of it is just bird and cat facts, it was quite fun picking out bits I already knew about the animals!! If a new book was made I'd immediately preorder, but would like to see more fantastical imaginative made-up behaviours for the beasts next time!!! But that is just a small personal nitpick!! 11/10!!!
A beautiful book -- both the illustrations and the quality of the print. Quickly and securely shipped -- box held firm even though my mail carrier opted to jam it in my mailbox!
This is one of those little treasures you hope to find browsing Etsy: a lovingly designed little book with a genuine idea behind it, and the artwork to match. Ah, you just have to love the Painted Griffin. Merci beaucoup, Lyndsey.
The art in this is Absolutely Adorable and really well done!!! I'm also really impressed with the quality!!!
