Thousand and One Creatures

Aino Järvinen & Laura Merz

Did you know that a giraffe’s poop falls from about three meters, or that it can clean its ears with its tongue? Or that an octopus has three hearts? Thousand and One Creatures is a wild non-fiction book about animals and creatures illustrated by Laura Merz and written by Aino Järvinen. Laura Merz dove into the world of animals to find not so obvious facts and used brushes, cardboard pieces and found wooden sticks to give texture, speed and character to the creatures. Illustrations selected for the Mikkeli Illustrations Triennale 2017.
