Terra Ultima: The Discovery of a New Continent

Dutch artist Raoul Deleo features as a character in his own inventive picture book—the title translates from the Latin as ‘The End of the World’. Narrated in first person by a fictional academic, Dr Noah J. Stern, the book is an assemblage of ephemera, illustrations, and diary entries from Deleo’s supposed expeditions to a hidden continent inhabited by colourful hybrid creatures including the Flamingo Fawn and Large-Eyed Mouse Carp.
