For thousands of years, humans everywhere have brought imaginary creatures to life in stories, songs, and pictures. Adapted from the exhibition Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids, this postcard book contains 30 cards. The beautiful images showcase engravings and paintings drawn from works in the Museum's library as well as rare objects from around the world, models of mythic creatures, and fossils of extinct animals. These extraordinary creations of myth and legend remain enduringly fascinating to us today.
