Publisher Review

A rich , informative and truly wonderful cabinet of curiosities is beautifully displayed in this imaginative and covetous book. -- Chris Packham Animalium (Welcome to the Museum) grants admittance to your very own private, virtual museum. 'Curator' Jenny Broom (who studied fine art at the Slade), has created a truly unique concept, whereby you can pore over each 'room' and 'exhibit' at your leisure. With fascinating facts and beautiful illustrations by Katie Scott, Animalium is a must for any child with a love for the animal kingdom. * Mumsnet.com * A glorious book featuring page after page of extraordinary creatures. Fish, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals are exquisitely drawn complete with Latin names and fascinating facts. This is a book Charles Darwin would have treasured. -- Harriet Green * The Guardian * The most beautiful book of the year is Animalium (Big Picture Press, GBP20), a big illustrated museum of creatures "curated" by Katie Scott and Jennie Broom. One for browsing and wondering at. -- Melanie McDonagh * The Evening Standard * "Stunning illustrations of 160 animals in a virtual museum. Kids over five will love this, as will the grown-ups!" * Prima magazine *
