Pete von Sholly's history of monsters

by Pete Von Sholly | 29 June 2021
Hardback
Pete Von Sholly's History of Monsters is a glorious look at the phenomenon of monsters as they figure in pop culture as well as from the anthropological, psychological and societal angles. This unprecedented illustrated pageant, presented as an accordion folded hardcover book, shows the actual history of monsters from man's earliest fears of the darkness beyond the fire to today's nightmares to see how these terrors found expression in myth, legend, and entertainment. But whatever the time or medium it's always in the unknown where the monsters lurk and fester and wait. Step into Pete Von Sholly's History of Monsters and experience the story as never before. "This astounding work traces the evolution and proliferation of monsters through all human history and many cultures, with over 1,100 different examples intertwined into a colorful, informative and fascinating book on a scale that has never before been attempted. Take a guided tour through the dark side of legend, myth, superstition, fiction, animation, film, television and even cryptozoology, and meet every monster that has haunted your nightmares - and quite a few that haven't (yet) - in this fantastic panorama wrought with the skills of a mature master of the genre." - Richard Milner, former editor of Natural History magazine and author of Charles R. Knight - The Artist Who Saw Through Time and Darwin's UniverseZ
