Mythologica: An Encyclopedia of Gods, Monsters and Mortals from Ancient Greece

Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions

Hermes, the messenger of the gods, is also the god of thieves, athletes and the guide to the underworld. Gaia, primordial goddess of the Earth, had a long and ultimately unsuccessful contest with Zeus about who should rule the Universe. The Fates, or Moirae, gave people their “share” of life and were severe, implacable goddesses who controlled the destiny of every human being.

This guide to Greek mythology combines accessible facts with amazing visuals for a truly amazing read. The artwork really is the star of this stunning book, showing full poster-page sized Greek gods and mythical humans in vibrant colours, collage, diverse representations and a thoroughly modern sensibility.
