This book tries to explain the origins of the Unicorn myth but never really accomplishes its goal. But where did these ideas originate? Nigel Suckling’s 'The Book of the Unicorn' attempts to answer this question by gathering unicorn lore and legends from all corners of the earth. It wants us to believe in these creatures while at the same time kind of proving they didn't exist? Confusing. His sources include travelers’ tales and Unicorns are commonly found on heraldic devices, for they represent wisdom and purity alongside extraordinary beauty, strength and swiftness.
Anyway, the book claims to contain all of the known legends that have been written about unicorns from several different cultures. Garland goes into depth about the asian unicorn as well, and does great pictures to it as well. There is also a history of the unicorn. The illustrations are lovely, some breathtaking. A definite must have for any fantasy lover.
A creature of myth and legend, the unicorn is a powerful white horse surrounded by an aura of calm and gentle wisdom emanating from its single sharp, spiralling horn. This illustrated celebration of the unicorn explores its history and mythology. ISBN13:9781850283607. Release Date:August 2002.
