‘A ?mis-matched zoo of mind-boggling creations from minotaurs through golems to mermaids, from sphinxes to sirens and shapeshifting nightmares … takes us to the edge of the cultural map’ – The Times

‘My special favourite this year … a colourful and hideous collection of arty monsters of all kinds … this nightmarish bestiary is sure to stir the bloodthirsty imaginations of nice boys and girls everywhere’ – V&A?Magazine

With a brilliant set of bizarre and fantastical illustrations, 'Monsters' provides a dark yet engrossing visual history of fearsome beasts from every age and culture in art, mythology and legend.

Monsters

Christopher Dell explores such questions as
How have monsters survived the millennia?
Why do we find the same one-eyed giants in Japan and in ancient Greece?
Why do we find the same dragons in Europe and China?
