Colfax Avenue: Colorado author Joseph Nigg’s previous books include The Book of Fabulous Beasts and How to Raise and Keep a Dragon. Nigg will discuss and sign his new book Sea Monsters: A Voyage around the World’s Most Beguiling Map (Univ. of Chicago Press), a wonderful examination of the Carta Marina, a map charting the Nordic waters of 1539 by Olaus Magnus. Nigg’s book is a stunning tour of a world that still holds many secrets for us land dwellers, who will forever be fascinated by reports of giant squid and the other real-life creatures of the deep that have proven to be as bizarre and otherworldly as we have imagined for centuries. It is a gorgeous guide for enthusiasts of maps, monsters, and the mythic.
