The Book of Knightsby L.A. Williams, Ruth Thompson, Mark Poole, Donato Giancola
Similar in scope and vision to best-selling titles The Book of Angels and The Book of the Dragon, this sumptuously illustrated volume presents legends of that romantic, noble medieval warrior, the knight. In magnificent full-color spreads, author and award-winning illustrator L.A. Williams provides a brief background on the real life, training, and weaponry of the historical knight, before leading into thrilling tales of gallant and sometimes ruthless mythical knights from a range of traditions.
The Book of Knights is an adventure with every turn of the page.
