In The Lady in Yellow, Rafe gives Veronica an ancient, Medieval tome,
The Book of Unholy Beasts.
The book is a compendium of mythical creatures… including the one special to the de Grimstons…along with descriptions of them and their legends. I was thinking of approaching an artist friend of mine to make this book and have it available to fans of The Lady in Yellow. It may happen someday, but in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share some of these antique images from actual Medieval illuminated manuscripts.
Various UnGodly Creatures including a Wildman
Strange Unnatural Creatures, Dragon, Unicorn, Oliphant and Foreigners
Wolves and Wolfman
Manticore: Head of a Man, body of a Lion
Side Story: The Wolf of Chazes who was tried in a French court for murder. Thus are legends made.
Our ancestors really belived this stuff. Its possible that some of these weird creatures were real, created in the labratories of lost Atlantis. Who knows for sure?
