BibliOdyssey Anthropomorphics

BibliOdyssey is a huge blog/archive of book art. Think of it as a sort of Flickr(in blog format) for book illustrations and it is equally addictive. It is a great source of inspiration and learning.

As well as introducing some of you to BibliOdyssey, I thought I would share a cross section of my favourites but the list is so huge that I've narrowed it down to something for which I am fond: anthropomorphics, or humanised animals.

Click on the images to go to the source page for high resolution versions where available.
