WOW! this is really great work! I love the references to other books and movies, like the balrog and orc, and the "moonbeast" LOL. But if i may suggest some things, one would be to add page numbers, and possibly small designs for the corners to take up some space. (unless of course the movie prop doesn't have these details) Another thing would be to increase the font size on the pages with no pictures, so it could be more easily read, and so it would look more complete. GREAT work though! C:After many hours at the computer on Harry Potter Wiki, Google Image Search, Word and CorelDRAW I present to you, in alphabetical order, the 115 page Monster Book of Monsters.

I will not lie, some of the information is difficult to read, not only because of the font, but because of the direction of text. But not knowing all about a creature makes it that much more mysterious...an possibly dangerous. :lol Also, you'll find some filler text just for the look.
Anyways, when you print it, if I might suggest, add your own hand written notes on each beast, for a little extra touch. Perhaps, if you're talented enough, some anatomy drawings even. In the actual pages, what few are out there, there appear to be ink splatters on the pages...which I plan on recreating when I print mine. I would also suggest going over the images with a fountain pin, to make them sharper and more "hand drawn." Also when printing, print in black and white only, this will get rid of they gray and make things more "ink-like."
I truly enjoyed making it and I hope everyone enjoys it. I take no credit for the images used or the basic information on the creatures. However, when/if you read it, I think you'll find a lot of my own creative writing and that was the fun part! You may also even recognize some other Monsters from other literature, movies, myths etc....:lol It is a big file, so it might take a while.
Enjoy! Let this be my Christmas present to all! Or Holiday gift, if Christmas isn't your thing!
These pictures (attached in this post) have been posted a LOT of times on this thread but I guess they could do well now to show how accurate ghargiss monster book of monsters really is.But if i may suggest some things, one would be to add page numbers, and possibly small designs for the corners to take up some space. (unless of course the movie prop doesn't have these details)
who did these replicated pages? Are there more?
