Product description

This book explores monsters through the ages and throughout the world. With a brilliant set of bizarre and fantastical illustrations, "Monsters" provides a dark yet engrossing visual history of fearsome beasts from every age and culture. Christopher Dell investigates what the existence of monsters even if only in our heads says about humankind, and explores such questions as how monsters have survived the millennia; why they are universal; and, why we find the same one-eyed giants in Japan and in ancient Greece, or the same dragons in Europe and China.

I loved that book! I loved the illustrations, the layout, the snake-like scales on the hardback cover! The creatures are categorized with details for each group and there are so many have full page color illustrations (some rare). For me it's a detailed archive of creatures and mythical monsters and an amazing source of inspiration.
