An Illustrated Guide to Mythical Creatures
Hold back no longer, and discover why An Illustrated Guide to Mythical Creatures is the coolest, most visually intense handbook about legendary beings you’ll ever read!
Rich text, images, and primary source imagery makes this a veritable "bible" on the subject of mythological beasts.
Embossed cover and gold foil title make this a fantastic gift for the young fantasy lover.
British illustrator David West has created intense computer-generated 3-D images and placed them alongside classical works of art, immersing the reader in visual wonder. Intricate details about creatures from dragons to chimeras to shape-shifters and every being in between grace the pages. A huge fan of all things mythical and beastie, I didnt expect to discover anything new or different as I read. I was so wrong! Anita Ganeri and David West have gathered invaluable information from so many cultures and beliefs that I found more than one surprise. Id planned on passing this book along to my childs school library, but Im & not.
An Illustrated Guide to Mythical Creatures would serve as an excellent coffee table book, as a resource for writers and storytellers, or as entertainment for kids of all ages.
An absolutely gorgeous book, highly recommended. 5/5
