ePUB2 Breverton's Phantasmagoria ePUB2

by Terry Breverton

This is a fantastical compendium that pulls together all the greatest myths and legends from around the world, from magical objects and legendary people and animals to mythical places and hoards of treasure.While this book doesn't have huge amounts of detail for each entry (one could only imagine the size of the book if the author tried that!) it is a superb starting point and the entries do cover the salient points, more than enough to get your imagination flowing.The author uses both contemporary and ancient accounts (Pliny the Elder makes many a guest appearance) giving the entries depth while keeping them as relevant as possible to modern day readers.The author even adds in his own opinions, which normally I don't like but in this case they are so witty and excellently done I have no complaints what-so-ever.The book also comes complete with superb and beautiful line illustrations including plenty of those mythical beasts that the reader may otherwise struggle to picture (some are truly impressive in their complexity and variety of characteristics).Overall this is a fantastic book, perfect for dipping in and out of and leaving on the coffee table ready for diving into whenever you're at a loose end.
