Gorgeously printed in silver ink on black paper, this field guide to our new world of hybrid specimens catalogs the conflation of the technosphere and the biosphere

Plastiglomerates, surveillance robot dogs, fordite, artificial grass, antenna trees, COVID-19, decapitated mountains, drone-fighting eagles, standardized bananas: all of these specimens—some more familiar than others—are examples of the hybridity that shapes the current landscapes of science, technology and everyday life. Inspired by medieval bestiaries and the increasingly visible effects of climate change on the planet, French researcher Nicolas Nova & art collective DISNOVATION.ORG provide an ethnographic guide to the “post-natural” era in which we live, highlighting the amalgamations of nature and artifice that already co-exist in the 21st century.

A sort of field handbook, A Bestiary of the Anthropocene aims to help us orient ourselves within the technosphere and the biosphere. What happens when technologies and their unintended consequences become so ubiquitous that it is difficult to define what is “natural” or not? What does it mean to live in a hybrid environment made of organic and synthetic matter? In order to answer such questions, Nova & DISNOVATION.ORG bring their own research together with contributions from collectives such as the Center for Genomic Gastronomy and Aliens in Green as well as text by scholars and researchers from around the world. Polish graphic designer Maria Roszkowska provides illustrations.

Hot Book Alert! 'A Bestiary of the Anthropocene' is a New Release this week!

Featured spreads are from A Bestiary of the Anthropocene: Hybrid Plants, Animals, Minerals, Fungi, and Other Specimens, edited by Nicolas Nova and DISNOVATION.ORG and published by our friends at Onomatopee Projects. Printed in striking silver-on-black with flush, pure black edges, this beautifully designed and remarkably well-written and researched international field handbook gathers notes on the evolving hybrid flora and fauna of the “post-natural” world we now inhabit as members of the Anthropocene era. Rock speakers, plastic-eating caterpillars, square watermelons, artificial turf, radioactive mushrooms and contrails are all addressed, alongside observations on bestiaries, artificiality, planetary indigestion, ferality and much more—all over the course of 256 pages and 90 duotone illustrations by Polish graphic designer Maria Roszkowska. “This bestiary of the Anthropocene aims at helping us observe, navigate and orientate into the increasingly artificial fabric of the world,” Nova writes. “It aims at encouraging us to pay attention, to perceive the nuances and the assemblage of a dark ecology that arose in the last decades.” continue to blog
