Book of Sea Monsters, The
Nigel Suckling, Bob Eggleton
For millennia, mankind has been fascinated by the awesome power of the sea and the creatures sheltered by its depths. In the past, oceanic crossings toward new horizons were not just challenges of the physical elements, but defiance of the perils the human imagination projects onto the unknown. In The Book of Sea Monsters, these mythical creatures of the deep are vividly brought back to life by award-winning artist Bob Eggleton. Exploring the myth, legend, scientific documentation, and fiction inspired by the creatures like the serpent of Midgard, the Biblical Leviathan, the Kraken, and the infamous monster of Loch Ness, The Book of Sea Monsters will fascinate all lovers of mythology, legend, and the many secrets of the sea. Bob Eggleton is one of the most sought-after fantasy artists in the business. His work has earned him seven Chelsey Awards (given by the Association of SF/Fantasy Artists) and three Hugo Awards.
