"Peek within at some of the most vivid depictions of this beast that belongs to us all...Praised be John Howe and may the fire within him never be extinguished." - from the foreword by Guillermo del Toro. This title presents the entire collection of John Howe's dragon art, created over his 30-year career, in one breathtaking volume. It presents a personal exploration by John of the inspirations and techniques he uses to render these amazing beasts.Each dragon is gloriously presented on a double page spread; accompanying this is a series of pages where John reveals how he forged each one through working sketches and reference material. From fire dragons erupting from molten depths, through sea dragons churning stormy seas, every medieval, celtic, gothic and sci-fi icon is represented. Fascinating text reveals the myths behind each dragon, as well as an exploration on its render, with full captions, annotations, highlighted details and design elements.
