From the Publisher
Are there giants among us? Find their story writ large in a
lavish exploration touching on folklore and myth, truth and
Ancient Greece had its Titans, the Celts their Green Knight, the
Bible Goliath - and for those who know where to look, signs of
these legendary hulking creatures still abound. Now comes a hugely
engrossing chronicle of giants since antiquity, from their role in
forming mountains and causing earthquakes to the mysteries of their
sacks (watch out for hitchhiking humans); from their means of
employment (how did the Druids built Stonehenge?) to an extensive
map of places around the world where giants may likely be found.
Exhaustive and lushly illustrated, this enormously valuable
resource is sure to fascinate all who open its covers.
Special features include:
* sundry flaps, booklets, and gatefolds
* a lavish foiled and embossed cover
* an elegant tassel dangling from the spine
