Caught Creatures is the world's finest Monster Art Haiku book.
Yes, that's probably the best way to describe it. It is full of monsters (mostly those that are caught), a Haiku for each one, lots and lots of full-color monster art. 48 pages of monsters, in fact.
Is it for kids? Sure!
Is it for imaginative adults? You bet!
Is it for fans of monsters or Halloween? Indeed.
Is it full-color? Yes, though we didn't use every color.
Who wrote it? Daniel M. Davis. (But the idea came from his wife Dawna.)
Only 1100 were printed - so this is indie press at it's best!
"We created this book for our son Kaid" says Daniel Davis, the artist and illustrator of Caught Creatures. "He's inherited my love of monsters and the desire to hunt them down and capture them for their monster gold."
"Though I wanted to make it for a kid, Caught Creatures isn't strictly a kid's book. It's full of references to old americana; video games, chopper bikes, old guitars, and vintage lighting. Most kids won't get it as much as their parents will... it's a wink and a nod to Gen X."
"Really it's a book for anybody who likes to think like a kid. I know I do."
