An Illustrated History of Domestic Athropods

By Sir Evald Fitch Townsend

An Illustrated History of Domestic Arthropods is an artifact from an imagined world where humans are the only vertebrates and the rest of the animal.kingdom is populated by giant insects, arachnids, and crustaceans. This book, which is a hand-made art object, describes the centipedes in Marie Antoinette's garden, the grasshoppers tamed by Alexander the great, and the discovery by Empress Xi Ling-Shi of the silkworm cocoon. This book also contains recipes, advertisements, and numerous ink illustrations that offer insight into a word in which the animals are very different from those in our world, and the humans are largely the same.
