A Jewel of a book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mermaids: An Enchanting Exploration of Their Myths, Legend, and Lore (Hardcover)
Being a massive mer-fan, I know a lot about mermaid lore, but I bought this book anyway because of the simple beauty and victorian like elegance of the cover. Inside the book are beautiful illustrations in aqua ink and the book written also in aqua goes into great depths about mermaid origins, symbolism and myths in different cultures and I was suprised to learn a lot of new and interesting facts about my favorite creature of myth. It has a feel of a victorian field guide and if your a mermaid fan, I highly recommend this beautiful little book as it is all here in simple understated beauty.
