For the coffee table,
This review is from: Mythology: The Complete Guide to Our Imagined Worlds (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Do not buy this book if you have an interest in mythology that goes beyond the superficial. Do consider buying it if you enjoy looking at wonderful pieces of art from throughout the world, from throughout different historical time periods, which have been inspired by mythology. Yes, it is a beautiful book and the illustrations, most of them in colour, are superb. Personally, however, I would have been happier to have fewer pictures to look at and rather more depth to the textual commentary.
