The world did not truly believe in giant squid until the 1870s, when record numbers of the mysterious creatures appeared in the waters and beaches around the island of Newfoundland. Thrilling tales and images of “devilfish” spread around the globe and shaped the animal’s public image as a delightfully terrifying enigma suspended at the boundary of fable and fact.
Including more than 130 images, 10 pull-out facsimile documents and dozens of sidebars, meant to explain the remarkable history of the giant squid while building a sense of wonderment. Devilfish is a pop-up book for adults, grounded in research and reaching for the wondrous!Author: Jenny Higgins
