Description

As well as maps and flaps you're provided with such things as a strand of silver hair from the mane of a unicorn and the ashes from a phoenix nest. Ernest Drake set forth on his yacht, The Hydra for a year-long voyage around the world to start a new science, he deemed it "Monsterology". Helen Ward trained as an illustrator at Brighton School of Art, under the direction of well-known children's illustrators such as Raymond Briggs, Justin Todd, Chris McEwan and John Vernon Lord.

The conceit of the book is that it's a facsimile of one published in 1904 but - to my untrained eye at least - the illustrations of the fantastical beasts themselves do nothing to evoke the period. I would give "Monsterology The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts" by Ernest Drake a 4-star review because, 1; I really like the illustrations and the information 2; I like how the author covers various creatures 3; I honestly forgot that these creatures are fictional while reading which I loved but 4; I really wish that is was longer and there were more information in this book. You'll find all your favourite creatures here, from the mermaid and the griffin to the yeti, Big Foot and, of course, Nessie.Explora la mayor tienda de eBooks del mundo y empieza a leer hoy mismo en la Web, en tu tablet, en tu teléfono o en tu dispositivo electrónico de lectura. A companion to Dragonology, Monsterology is a study of the many supposedly mythical beasts that inhabit our world.

It's a fun book on a fun subject, but in a series where production values are extremely high, it's certainly not one of the finest.He had absolutely no doubt that dragons exist, and his notes suggest that he had no little experience of them.

The ardent student of nature soon learns that those creatures we name foul and terrible monsters are in truth the most fabulous beestes awaiting amaz’d discoverie. His record includes beasts of the earth, water, air, and semi-human creatures found around the world, drawing from the mythology of myriad cultures and presenting his findings as fact. For anyone who has ever wondered whether legendary beasts still wander among us, this lush look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know.

Overall, Monsterology is fantastic and a must have for someone fascinated by mythology, monsters, and fantasy. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged.
