"Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, dogs and cats, unicorns and centaurs, tables and chairs, angels and demons! Come in and discover the only, unmatched, immeasurable, fabulous Exhibition of animals of Mr. Larsen! Come in and wonder, because this is not an ordinary tent. Imagine: there is not even a small animal on show. Here you can admire incredible beings: animalpeople and animalthings. This is a museum, a living catalogue of fantastic characters that really exist. Animalpeople are a curious mix of animals and people or people and animals, depending on how you see it. Mr. Larsen has been traveling for many years in order to find at least one specimen for each species. And today, at last, his efforts are rewarded by this peculiar space, that allows him to show his findings. Along with such extraordinary specimens you can find several animalthings, astonishing crossings of animals and artworks. To cross the exhibition’s threshold is to get into a matchless place that nobody has ever seen before. Come in and open your eyes wide, take advantage of this marvellous show! The admission is free for everybody and, of course, animals are welcome.”
A book designed in a nineteenth century and circus style, an original bestiary that will make you laugh, play, wonder and free your imagination to create new animalpeople and animalthings.
