This wonderful book by Disney story artist and steampunk enthusiast Brian Kesinger has been a runaway hit selling out its first print run in less than two months and is now in later printings! This is a first printing.
An illustrated "Guidebook to the Domesticated Cephalopod" featuring 30 full page color illustrations of Victorian lady, Victoria Prismall, and her loving pet octopus, Otto.
From the publisher:
A beautifully produced and richly illustrated book that showcases the day-to-day adventures of independent girl-about-town Victoria Prismall and her pet land octopus Otto. Thirty panoramic, full-page illustrations humorously chronicle the duo's home and social activities that include (among other things) bathing, biking, dating, cooking, playing croquet, and pumpkin carving. Accompanying text explains the "do"s and "don't"s of living with a large land octopus. The book's art is extremely detailed, and each illustration by 16-year veteran Disney Feature Animation artist Brian Kesinger tells its own visual story. The Victorian era characters and period-influenced design elements combine to create a wonderful, collectible art-object for those who still value the classic elegance of ink-on-paper. The hardcover binding is plussed with two-layer embossing and spot varnish, and the interior is printed on extra heavy paper. An exquisite volume for lovers of books, art and pets.
