The Berkleys are comprised of husband and wife duo Ryan and Lucy Berkley from Portland, Oregon. Ryan is a self-taught illustrator best known for his technically brilliant and detailed drawings of sophisticated animals. Lucy is responsible for the witty and whimsical backstories and anecdotes that accompany the illustrations.
The “Berkley Bestiary”, as it is lovingly called, is filled with a cast of furry friends that you just can’t help but love! The collection includes 2 notebooks (80 lined pages per notebook), a greeting card assortment box that includes 16 notecards in four designs and two porcelain trays – all featuring quirky yet sophisticated animal portraits and humorous anecdotes.
