In a breathtaking grand finale, the world’s mythical pop-up masters unleash monsters and dragons that have prowled countrysides and imaginations for centuries.
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.
Pop-up gods Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda have outdone themselves with this addition to the Encyclopedia Mythologica series. Featuring creatures of all kinds, including dragons, vampires, Bigfoot, and werewolves, leap out of the pages menacingly. Medusa's snake-ridden head magnificently rises up and out and the page, while a stunning red Chinese dragon slithers through a spread.
