Limited Edition Endangered Species

Endangered Species is a new limited edition publication and it features some of the illustrators from the Magic postcard book and Magic Show exhibition.

And as if that's not enough for you they've even managed to squeeze in 26 different animals. Endangered Species also has two different covers so is either a zine or a colouring book depending on people's preferences. The zine cover was designed by Helen Entwisle and she has copies of Endangered Species for sale in her etsy shop aswell as new cards and tote bags. The colouring book cover was designed by Mina Braun and she will be selling copies at the next Design Market at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh.
