THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW WORLD, CALLED THE BLAZING WORLD is simply one of the most fascinating, unusual and astonishing pieces of writing we've ever come across. Written in 1666 by Margaret Cavenish, the Duchess of Newcastle, the book details an interdimensional otherworldly queer romance that is centuries (if not millennia) ahead of its time.

This strange metafictional experiment follows a young woman who is transported to a world of animal-people, becomes their empress, and eventually leads an invasion back into her own world, complete with bird-man bombardiers dropping magma stones and submarine ships infiltrating naval barriers. The tale involves spirit possession, astral projection, the many-worlds theory, cutting edge science and philosophy, and all manner of visionary invention. It is a landmark in the history of science fiction, queer and feminist writing, and the development of the novel. It must be experienced first-hand.

Rebekka Dunlap's experimental, psychedelic illustration work excels when bending worlds and minds, envisioning bold new possibilities in physical and psychological space -- which makes her the best artist imaginable to bring this bizarre and utterly unique piece of fiction to life. Cavendish's text is presented with a huge suite of illustrations from Dunlap in an oversized slipcase hardcover, as the newest entry Beehive Books' ongoing series of Illuminated Editions.
