Abstract:

This is a handsome book: large and solid, printed on heavy paper, each page illuminated with richly detailed paintings by Robert Ingpen. Author and artist describe and portray hundreds of fantastic places, people, objects and ideas known to us from literature, legend, mythology and folklore. There is a map of Brobdingnag, awesome dragons and griffins, creatures of the zodiac, vampires and golems. Spirits of the Australian landscape are well represented but the cosmos is the limit. As well as being fascinating and beautiful to browse through, this is a valuable collection of oft sought explanations and descriptions not found in encyclopaedias dealing only in hard cold facts.
