Artist Todd Lockwood has created a gorgeous anatomical study of a dragon for the cover of the upcoming book The Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent, transcribed by Marie Brennan and itself a Victorian-era exploration of the evolution of dragons. The book doesn’t arrive until February of next year (preorder it here) but we had to share the cover with you now. Because dragons.
About The Natural History of Dragons:
All the world, from Scirland to the farthest reaches of Eriga, know Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world’s preeminent dragon naturalist. She is the remarkable woman who brought the study of dragons out of the misty shadows of myth and misunderstanding into the clear light of modern science. But before she became the illustrious figure we know today, there was a bookish young woman whose passion for learning, natural history, and, yes, dragons defied the stifling conventions of her day.
