In his Postscript to The Name of the Rose, Umberto Eco confessed that he had rediscovered "what writers have always known (and have told us again and again): Books always speak of other books, and every story tells a story that has already been told." In The Book of Legendary Lands, the Italian polymath lures us into utopias, dystopias, and fairylands inhabited by all manners of beings, each of them created, furnished, and reassembled by legions of artful confederates. Like all of Eco's writings, this profusely illustrated book breathes for all those who love the scent of books in the morning.
