Synopsis

Encyclopedia Mythologica: Dragons and Monsters by Matthew Reinhart, Robert Sabuda

In a breathtaking grand finale, the world's mythical pop-up masters unleash monsters and dragons that have prowled countrysides and imaginations for centuries.Lurking behind this delux pop-up cover, a Kraken grapples with a ship on the high seas; dragons from Eastern and Western traditions spring to life; and a Medusa, snake-hair twisting and hissing, turns the onlooker to stone. Dare you look inside, where an ancient, decrepit vampire rises from his coffin; a lycanthrope transforms in the light of the full moon; and Bigfoot hides behind a tree? Master paper engineers Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda unfold the legends and lore of cultures around the world to reveal these stunning creatures and many more. Pop-up fans and fantasy lovers will be equally enthralled by the dynamic creatures depicted in this astonishing volume, the climax of the Encyclopedia Mythologica trilogy.
