The Maltese Bestiary
Winner: Best Book Design at the National Book Prize
An illustrated guide to the mythical flora and fauna of the Maltese islands
Supernatural entities, frightening creatures, magical plants, ancient gods and a host of other legendary beings — almost lost from Maltese culture in the buzz of modern lifestyles — are brought back from the brink of extinction in this compendium of mythical life forms.
Illustrated with realistic depictions and concise descriptions gathered from age-old sources, The Maltese Bestiary serves as a field guide to the almost lost yet living world that is hidden beneath Malta’s sunny exterior.
