Animals From History is an illustrated book that combines highly detailed animal illustrations with famous characters from history. It was created by Christina Hess. It is a collection adapted from historic stories set in an animal-centric world. Each story is a fantasy version of real events but portrayed by cats and dogs instead of humans. She complements each story with character names that resemble the original but with a twist to the names like Cleocatra, Napoleon Boneaparte and Marie Antoinippe.
