Beardsleys made these illustrations to the Greek comic play "Lysistrata" by Aristophanes for a privately printed edition issued by Leonard Smithers in 1896. Great and funny art.

1879: Stuff That Wouldn’t Fit: London People

 
From the 1879 GM's Guide (https://bit.ly/2QFY51M), the harpy, a transitional theropod ridden by the Saurids, especially in the forests and foothills. More nimble than the buff, less cantankerous than the hunchbeak, the harpy can be a bit of a handful but makes an agile mount. Art by Christianne Benedict. #rpg #lostworld #fasa1879 #tabletop_rpg #games #gaming #creature #art #mastoart #steampunkrpg #victorian

From the 1879 GM's Guide (https://bit.ly/2QFY51M), the Grinning Monkey Orchid. Venus flytraps capture insects by snapping shut. The orchid captures bits of anything that brushes against it because the edges of the petals are razor sharp. This monkey bites. This flower can take your finger off. Oh for England's green and pleasant land... Art by Christianne Benedict. #fasa1879 #lostworld #rpg #art #mastoart #creature #monster #gaming #games #victorian #steampunkrpg
