Welcome to future Earth.

Despite repeated warnings, the environment has become polluted to such an extent that many areas of the globe have become uninhabitable, and wildlife is now extinct.

From the ashes, a new style of ‘wildlife’ is created. Wildlife that will not remain harnessed by humankind.

Welcome to the world of Mechanica.

This beautiful picture book, created by Australian illustrator and author Lance Balchin, is an encyclopedia of Mechnica creatures with a fictional narrative.
