The Mythical Creatures Bible by Brenda Rosen
Fabulous animals, specters from the shadows, nature spirits, and sacred beings: these are the monstrous, marvelous, and mthic 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 stunning 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!
