In-your-face monsters! Medusa, dragons, and the horrific kraken seem to leap from the pages of this incredible full-color pop-up book as Reinhart and Sabuda bring their paper-engineering skills to the fantastic world of Dragons & Monsters.
Six parts introduce the monsters of Ancient Greece, dragons and more dragons, creatures of the waters, the undead, and monsters of modern times. Each section has an amazing main paper sculpture, plus several foldouts with their own pop-ups and explanatory text.
A red dragon from China swirls and curves across, over, and above one double-page spread, while the Yeti snarls and towers over the book’s closing section. Aside from vampires, werewolves, and zombies, you’ll meet golem and bunyip, chupacabra and wyvern, mysterious creatures from all over (and under) the world – and all of them unfriendly to humans!
Open and close carefully so that you can continue to enjoy the intricate, interfolded paper pop-ups of these Dragons & Monsters … if you dare! The creators of Encyclopedia Mythologica: Gods & Goddesses bring us another beautiful look at a realm beyond the everyday. (12 pages plus numerous foldout sections).
