The Ancient Book of Myth and War
(Red Window, 2007)
™ and © Red Window, Inc. and respective copyright owners
Heroes and ancient myths are a vital part of popular culture. Not only do tales of great deeds inspire us to achievement ourselves, but they influence and shape the stories we read today. This lovely hardbound book celebrates those stories, with full-page paintings of the myriad heroes and monsters that populate them. Fantastic characters both well-known (Perseus, Medusa, the Minotaur) and less so (The Olive Man, the Archway Usher) spring off the page with violence, humor, and a remarkable reminder of what art is capable of.
Scott Morse, Lou Romano, Don Shank, and Nate Wragg provide the paintings, along with explanatory text for each one. At turns lighthearted and dark, it’s a collection that does the mythology proud.
