Born of the imagination, mythical beasts are the subjects of myriad myths, legends, and stories and have been reproduced in art forms ranging from ancient tapestries to modern corporate logos. This richly illustrated book draws on a wide variety of sources to illuminate the roles mythical beasts — especially the dragon, the unicorn, the griffin, and the sphinx — have played in many different cultures, showing why they have retained their appeal through the ages.
