3.0 out of 5 stars A colourful treat, 24 Mar 2011
This review is from: Monsters: A Bestiary of the Bizarre (Hardcover)
If you are looking for an individual case by case study of monsters describing their complete history and characteristics, then you will be sorely disappointed with this book as it contains very little text. If on the other hand, you want a picture book which contains stunning representations of historical images and paintings, then you are in for a real visual treat.

The monsters are grouped together in several sections and contain the briefest of introductions to each category. What then follows is a selection of full and doubled paged images representing monsters from all over the world. The images and paintings are in colour, are very sharp and beautifully presented. At the end of each section there is a complete list of the sources used, so follow up reading is possible if desired.

This book is ideal for art and design students and is also recommended as a visual companion to those who enjoy studying folklore and legends.
