Maria Chernakova, also known as Mary Komary, created this pop-up version of one of her favorite books, The Book of Barely Imagined Beings by Caspar Henderson.
The book is basically a guide to the real animal natural history and it covers animals that are so fantastic they seem mythological. Chernakova’s interpretation includes plenty of pop-ups, charts, and hand-drawn illustrations. The one copy that she made is divided into two volumes and has 10 pop-up figures.
Chernakova shares her work on Instagram and Behance, so make sure to check it out if you like the pictures below.
