The Mythical Creatures Bible: The Definitive Guide to Legendary Beings

5 Reviews

Fabulous animals, specters from the shadow world, nature spirits, and sacred beings: these are the monstrous, marvelous, and mythic creatures that have come down to us in folklore and legend. Some probably have their origins in reality; others spring completely from the imagination--and they are all here, in this stunningly illustrated bible. It's rich in history and images, and international in scope, covering dragons and serpents; weird insects like the Aztec Itzpapalotl; zombies, golems, and banshees; the watery Undine; the Monkey King, Sun Wukong; and much, much more. A fascinating and informative work.

One of my favourite books!!! I carry it around with me all the time whether it's for good reading material, or in case one of the unfriendly beasts attack and I'll need a reference.
