about

Belief in dragons has united humanity more than the belief in any other mythological creature. From China and Japan, through Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East, to Europe and even Central America, the image of the dragon has burned brightly in the imaginations of our forefathers.

Even today dragons continue to fascinate. In the 21st century, far from disappearing, dragons and dragon lore have spawned a wide range of fantasy books, games, TV series and movies that are enduringly popular worldwide - as indeed are dragon tattoos. From Tolkien's Desolation of Smaug and Lonely Mountain in The Hobbit, to Daenerys in Game of Thrones, dragons still hold the power to fascinate.

Ernest Ingersoll's classic 1928 study of Dragons and Dragon Law is here reproduced, together with a new introductory essay by Daniel Henley and a unique collection of full colour high definition dragon images from across the world.

54,000 words, 92 historical images, 30 contemporary images.
