Manthology is a collection of color illustrations by Mitch Scheele, depicting praying mantids as various everyday, historical, and fictional characters. Originally envisioned in 1992 by Steven C. Rothermund as a coffee-table book including accompanying poetry, the collection has been submitted to dozens of publishers, and rejected. The hope is that the samples shown here will inspire interest in Manthology, and sales of items at the Surf Sumo website will help us to achieve this dream.
