Beautiful little book of dragons
on 16 July 2007
Cultures all round the world and throughout time have been fascinated by dragons. In this small, eminently portable paperback, Joyce Hargreaves explores the wonderful world of dragons both malevolent and benign, focussing for the most part on British dragons but also devoting space to Chinese and Japanese ones (who, I must admit, do seem to be friendlier.) The informative and unstuffy text is complemented by beautiful old engravings.
This book would be great as a gift. It's published by Wooden Books, who offer a large list of titles covering subjects such as archaeology, architecture, mathematics and even alchemy.
