Description - The Magical History of Unicorns by Russ Thorne

Unicorns have appeared in mythological and religious texts for thousands of years. Often the case of a mistranslation, or mistaken identity, these mystical creatures have built a legendary history that now revels in the landscapes of modern fantasy fiction, novels and popular culture in general. This beautiful new book contains a huge range of gorgeous unicorns, painted in many different styles by modern artists, but all treated with the respect and wonder such a creature deserves. See the magical forests, and the life-giving rivers of the elven realms, the flowing tresses of the princesses and white witches who tend the unicorn, see the young and the old, the white and the black unicorns, and submit to this joyful celebration of a mythology brought to life. AUTHOR: As a boy, Russ Thorne loved reading Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, playing Hero Quest and poring over issues of 'White Dwarf', admiring the cover art in the process. Later he studied English Literature and got to know Homer's heroes and a bit of Beowulf, before beginning a career as a writer and editor. Since then he's published books on tattoo art, body piercing and vampires and writes regularly for national newspapers including the Independent. SELLING POINTS: . Focus on a hugely popular contemporary artist . Visually stunning illustrations . Beautiful giftbook for the millions of genre devotees . Punchy, fascinating text on fantasy art and culture 80 Illustrations
