Encyclopedia Mythologica: Dragons and Monsters

authors: Robert Sabuda; Matthew Reinhart
illustrators: Robert Sabuda; Matthew Reinhart

series name:
Encyclopedia Mythologica

This limited edition comes in a linen slipcase with the title stamped in red foil and a ribbon. Embedded in the front cover is an extra pop-up of an Amphithere numbered and signed by both Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda.

Lurking behind this intriguing 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 reader to stone. Deeper inside, an ancient, decrepit vampire rises from his coffin; a lycanthrope is caught in the light of the full moon and transforms; and Bigfoot hides behind a tree, ducking his human pursuer. 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.

In a breathtaking grand finale, the world’s mythical pop-up masters unleash monsters and dragons that have prowled countrysides and imaginations for centuries.
