I found this book today from looking up the source of a random lol pic:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_After_Man:_An_Anthropology_of_the_Future

It's basically a speculative future book about all these crazy genetically engineered breeds of human offshoot made for singular purposes after the pure blood humans evacuate the planet and they're left to fend for themselves. Which is all fine and good but the art is HORRIFYING. Do an image search and be prepared to be scarred.

There are giant, boneless looking walrus-men, weird cyborg midgets integrated into the flesh of their deer-like mounts with HUMAN FACES, THIS!

It's pure nightmare fuel and is unfortunately very expensive, used copies are like eighty bucks.

I'm not one for that art style. I can appreciate the skill that went into it, but I can't find myself liking it.

These do look incredibly creepy and cool. I looked up some more mutants on google images and they all look Silent Hill-ian, minus the blood smears.
