About the Author

In his new book, The Late Fauna of Early North America, Scott Musgrove unearths previously undiscovered animals through a dedicated and scientifically un-approved practice of zoological impressionism. A lonestar in the field, he ventures where the gray-maned, khaki-clad, anthropologists with ivory walking sticks have not tunneling beneath freeways and ditch-combing along the rough borders of American mini-malls, in search of undiscovered and, up to this point, at least, extinct animals. The Late Fauna of Early North America features lush, highly detailed landscapes and up-close encounters with all manner of strange and beautiful creatures. Full color reproductions of his paintings abound, including unique antique frames, custom gold engraved nameplates, carved wooden sculptures, watercolors, ink drawings, and pencil renderings from the field. Scott's unorthodoxed research methods combined with his unmatched facility with paint and color result in a fascinating survey of what might have been in North America, if not for the invasion of pernicious settlers. Scott restores these beasts to life in his studio, stretching and stapling carpet scraps across ribs and skulls. With the help of a glue gun, a needle and thread, Scott sews and sculpts until the Harry Brook Trout or the Dwarf Basket Horse is finally staring back at him. Then and only then, does Scott attempt to paint them back into their pristine, natural environment. Scott brings these wild idols, relics and bio-wonders back to life and legitimacy in this handsome volume.

Format: Hardcover
A lovingly produced book on a great modern surrealist. Put this one on the shelf with Todd Schorr, Ryden, and Alex Gross. And make sure you read the introduction and footnotes as they are very funny.

A most decidedly good book, from a most decidedly interesting Artist. Intellectually riveting. A man of refined craftmanshippe and a profound plethora of knowledge in his field of zoology and ability resurrect and capture with such accurate and fine detail, elusive creatures as the little known, but much feared snow flake screamer, or the elusive Baltic flying hoot-annaniae. Children and Adults marvel for hours, and years, with the stimulating perspective little seen before; as if taken from the hidden archives in the Royale Viktoriae and Albert Museum.
They make brilliant gifts for business associates, friends and lovers. These should be mandatory reading and viewing for all Doctoral students and Theologians.
