Format: Hardcover
I found this in the bargain books at Borders and flipped through it. To my surprise, I saw many images from my favorite dragon artists being traced over and redone, or flat out pasted onto a poorly Photoshopped background. Ciruelo seems to be a particular favorite for this 'artist' to trace.

I suggest not buying this book and grabbing a nice artbook by Ciruelo himself. Then you wouldn't be subject to as many disastrous lenseflares.

Format: Hardcover
The art, while nice, too closely resembles dragon art from other books. There was even an uncredited image of Dragonheart's Draco! The author also needs to improve her research because some of the myths included were retold incorrectly such as Heracles's hydra and Maud's wyvern. I will give the author credit for one thing though, she is one of the few authors that is willing to discuss the legend of the Pisa and the book was interesting. I would strongly recommend dragonlovers buy one of the many other dragon books out there.
