An Illustrated Journey into Our Imagined Worlds


A huge treasury of mythical images and stories from cultures around the world


ISBN: 9780500291511 Category:

Christopher Dell


Every culture has its own myths, and this lively and accessible compendium gathers in one place some of humankind’s most enduring stories. Here, from every corner of the globe, are tales of the world’s creation, undying love, jealous gods and sturdy heroes, terrible monsters, the afterlife and the underworld.

Looking at mythology’s overarching themes, Christopher Dell shows how many myths share common patterns and traces how the human imagination, in all its diversity, has expressed itself through the ages.

Brought to life through hundreds of colourful and bizarre illustrations, Mythology will appeal to anyone interested in the tales we tell to explain the world around us.
