Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Depictions of real and imaginary creatures from the past are a source of fascination for many modern crafters, whether children doing school drawings or artists making models for fantasy movies. This collection of line drawings, taken from various sources and ranging from Stone Age cave paintings to 20th-century Art Deco, was compiled by McCallum (4000 Flower and Plant Motifs) for use by designers in any craft medium. Although sources for the figures are not cited, users familiar with art history will recognize many of the works. The creatures themselves are identified only in the index, while similar animals are grouped in individual chapters. Sheer quantity makes this a desirable addition to arts and crafts collections.
