Mortimer Megapress was founded in 2018 by Michael Koehler with the goal of publishing the works of emerging and established artists and writers as well as creating Mortimer Megazine, an anthology series of unusual field guides.

In its first volume, “Cryptids and Creatures” 22 artists and writers were gathered to explore the idea of cryptozoology. A cryptid is a creature often derived from folklore and alleged sightings whose existence has yet to be proven. Each artist was encouraged to step into the realm of experimentation, expanding upon their illustrations by writing characteristics, history, and giving each creature its own place in the world. It’s our intent for this anthology to serve to inform and entertain as much as it serves as a vessel for creativity for those involved.


Book will be available and ships February 2019
