No mythical animal has inspired as much legend around the world as the dragon. This book includes dragon lore from many countries as well as a structural analysis of dragon anatomy as it has evolved throughout history. There are instructions for drawing details such as scales and many line drawings of dragons in different poses for use by woodworkers, fabric artists, and illustrators. A good book for fantasy or young adult collections as well as general crafts.
