The Mythic Bestiary The Illustrated Guide to the World's Most Fantastical Creatures characters ↠ 107 Read & Download The Mythic Bestiary The Illustrated Guide to the World's Most Fantastical Creatures Throughout history fantastic beasts have stalked our imaginations From the ethereal unicorn of medieval European fable to the monstrous eight headed dragon of Japanese legend such animals have embodied some of life's greatest mysteries and humankind's most primal impulses the love of beauty the terror of the grave Familiar myths have lodged them in our consciousness but we may not know them as well as we think With stunning artwork and a wealth of encha. A general philosophy of mine that has served me well over my 30 year life is never pass up the opportunity to read a book about monsters The nice thing about books about monsters particularly illustrated ones is that even if they aren t very good there s still a bunch of cool monstersThis one is actually very goodOne of the biggest strengths of this book is that it is incredibly culturally inclusive There are plenty of monsters from Western traditions that we all know and love at this point werewolves hydra vampires harpies and the book could have easily been full of only those and satisfied a lot of people Tony Allan did a great job of including monsters from diverse cultures both those that everyone has heard of genies thunderbirds to those that are a bit less familiar naga kitsune to even a couple I had never heard of before like the tupilakAnother of its great strengths is the tying in of the mythic creature to their origins both in terms of where the stories originated usually this meant tying myths of various cultures to older cultures they borrowed from to any sort of real world sources of stories of the monsters For example the origin of the centaur seems to be the first time riders on horseback were seen by a culture that didn t fight from horseback they simply thought horse and rider were one In some cases mythical creatures were linked to actual real world creatures that have since gone extinct like some of the giant birds tracing their routes back to a 10 foot tall ostrich relative that survived until just a few hundred years ago
