Myth Match: A Fantastical Flipbook of Extraordinary Beasts by Good Wives and Warriors
Good Wives and Warriors–a phenomenal, female artist duo based out of London–has produced one of the most unique kid’s flip books ever. A mind-bending mix of ingenuity, wordplay and some of the best art around, Myth Match is a magical journey on multiple levels. If you don’t know about these talented individuals, do yourselves and check out their work here: www.goodwivesandwarriors.co.uk/
Myth Magic is both familiar and totally new and abstract at the same time, presenting a vast array of mythical creatures in a mix and match type format. The pages are cut in half, which allows for the most mind-bending mystical mash-ups you can think of. One side of each half-page has an illustration, the other side has corresponding text. So, when you flip one of the pages, the resulting mythical creature is a hybrid of your own creation and the written descriptions are done in a way so that they linguistically still make sense.
The artwork, wow. Fantastical and embellished, but not over-saturated or silly, all of the depictions are next-level. Good Wives and Warriors are powerhouse artists whose work can be found all over the world, and Myth Match is no exception. You might be tempted to buy a second copy just to tear out the pages and hang them on your wall.
