Selwyn E. Phipps is the President of the Magical Unicorn Society. After years of traveling the world in search of rare and beautiful unicorns, now he is sharing what he's learned about these magical creatures. He's based in London, the center of unicorn lore and learning. Aitch is inspired by travel, naturalistic illustrations, Naive Art, childhood memories, legends and folklore, creating colorful watercolor artworks on paper, characters cut out of wood, painted murals and intricate patterns and illustrations for clients all over the world. Oana Befort is a Romanian-born graphic artist, freelance illustrator, wife and mother of two based in the Midwest. Her mixed media illustrations are inspired by the natural world, her love of flora and fauna, folk motifs, nostalgia, sunlight and everyday life. When not drawing away, she can likely be found playing with her two young children, cooking homemade meals, walking through botanical gardens or art museums scavenging for new inspirations, going through the book sections of antique stores or caring for her plants. Zanna and Harry Goldhawk are a husband and wife illustrating team working from their seaside cottage in Cornwall. They take huge inspiration from color and nature, and splot their time between illustrating beautiful books, and designing gorgeous products for their business Papio Press. Rae Ritchie is an illustrator and pattern surface designer based in beautiful (but often chilly) Minneapolis, Minnesotas. She is greatly inspired by nature, vintage children's books, fables and faery tales.
Praise for The Magical Unicorn Society Official Handbook: Every page is beautifully designed, in full, vibrant color, with lovely illustrations that accompany the text. It is as inventive as it is thorough, categorizing unicorns into different families and presenting the wealth of information in various formats, including time lines and family trees. This book is sure to delight any curious child who adamantly wants to believe in unicorns and always has plenty of stories to share about them. --Booklist
