Encyclopedia Mythologica: Gods and Heroes
authors: Robert Sabuda; Matthew Reinhart
illustrators: Robert Sabuda; Matthew Reinhart
For all of recorded history, humans have sought to understand Earthís mysteries in the realm of the divine ó and aspired to conduct themselves as heroes. Only gods, of course, could push the sun across the sky,forge entire continents, and impel mountains to touch the clouds. In this stunning volume, the incomparable team of Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda take us to Ra-Atumís land in Ancient Egypt; above the Grecian clouds to Zeusís Mount Olympus; up to Norse god Odinís frozen north; to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor sits in the heavens; into the wilds of Oceania, where Peleís volcanic rage simmers below the earth; and to many more lands and times, all rich with sacred myths and legends.
The creators of the New York Times best-selling Encyclopedia Prehistorica series offer a mythic look at the mysteries of the past with an entire pantheon of remarkable pop-ups.
