Newt Scamander's Fantastic Beast Sketches

I am in the process of copying Newt Scamander's sketches of beasts from his notebooks. It's quite a task as I haven't been able to find decent quality images of most of the pages. I have found images of component parts of some of the other pages. I'm having a real struggle trying to find out what all the writing is on all but two of the pages. These are hand drawn with coloured pencils.

Excellent, beautiful! I have noticed how hard it is to find a lot of good detailed pictures from FB. Thank for sharing!

that's amazing! I suggest using lorem ipsum. you might also want to scan them and use some kind of font like secretary hand or voluta to save time, though preferably one that matches the original props. Mina Lima has used unreadable fonts for alot of their work (example: black cat letter)

here some font links that might mimic script:

Pretty sure we already know the font used on the sketches ;)

As for the other two - they are not free. So I wouldn't advise sharing the Fonts Geek link on here.
