Illustrated Friday: A Dignity of Dragons: Collective Nouns for Magical Beasts
Ahhh this book is GORGEOUS. It's a simple concept- illustrations of groups of magical creatures and the corresponding name that might be assigned to them, but the illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful and detailed and the variety of creatures represented here made me want to dig out my mythology books. There's a helpful glossary in the back that identifies all the creatures and tells a little bit about their stories. This would be an awesome gift for any fan of mythology or anyone with an active imagination. Happy Friday!
