The book of sea monsters
A stunning collection of fantasy illustration by the 1996 Hugo Award-winning Best Artist, bringing the beauty and the terror of the sea life
For millennia, humankind has been fascinated by -- and naturally fearful of -- the awesome power of the sea and the creatures sheltered by its depths. In the past, ocean crossings toward new horizons were not just challenges of the physical elements but a defiance of the perils that the human imagination projects onto the unknown. Now, in The Book of Sea Monsters, the lore of the sea comes rushing forward to reality. From the serpent of Midgard and the biblical Leviathan, through the kraken feared by Scandinavian mariners and the sightings by many respectable and otherwise sober-minded seafarers of the infamous monster of Loch Ness, the sea monster has been accepted through most of history as one of the shockingly real perils of the deep.
These unnatural creatures of the elements are brought to unnerving reality by acclaimed artist Bob Eggleton, along with Nigel Suckling's well-researched text. Exploring the myth, legend, scientific documentation, and fiction inspired by these strange beasts at the edge of imagination, The Book of Sea Monsters will thrill and fascinate all lovers of mythology, legend, and the many secrets of the sea.

Whoa, it was always cool as a child to listen to the fishermen down the street talk about the seas and what lay beneath. They were from the Old World and they spoke with respect of the ocean that was their livelihood. I thought of them when I read this book, thinking of all the tales they used to tell me and how I bloody well believed them. The Kraken is here and Nessie and the Giant Squid, along with Merhorses and Mermaids. Everything is brightly illustrated with a historical overview, with chapters divided by different types of monsters of the depths. We really don't know what truly lives down below, perhaps dinosaurs that never really left us. Enjoyable read all the way through. Book Season = Spring (time to boat)
