    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles Kindle5 stars for Alan Lee's art 45 stars for the prose The fact that this book introduced me to several new myths particularly some Arthurian tales I was unfamiliar with is what makes me rate it a 5 as a whole

    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles KindleAlan Lee’s illustrations were amazing but the text was a mix of fictional encyclopedia and storybook and didn’t succeed at either one very well

    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles Kindle35 stars The illustrations are glorious and dreamy duh Alan Lee and well worth getting the book for The text is very Western European centric and a little disorganized Sometimes the author tells you the story sometimes he generalizes about how castles are depicted in certain types of tales sometimes he summarizes sometimes he analyses with no summary and sometimes fascinating sounding stories are mentioned in passing Interesting content just not very consistent or organized I did like that generally the book followed the depiction of castles in stories chronologically There were also quite a few tales I hadn’t heard which is always great

    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles KindleAlan Lee's art is amazing He does a wonderful job of summerizing various legends and myths as he illustrates them From early Celt through the Arthurian Romances and beyond he does a fantastic job of catching the very essence of the story My mother bought this book for me many years ago and I've held on to it It is like a fine wine that gets better with age One of those books I keep returning to

    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles KindleYes this is the Alan Lee of Tolkien illsutrations fame BUT I would actually recommend this book for castle fans than anything else The author and Lee tie together stories and castles of folklore quite nicely

    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles KindleA cousin of mine gave me this book when she saw how I kept going back to it at her house to page through it I don't think I had any clue at that time that this was one of the same authors that did the Faerie book I loved so much

    Hardcover ☆ Castles eBook ¼ castles pdf, Castles KindleI've loved Alan Lee's work for 25 years ever since I saw his illustrations for The Mabinogion and Titus Groan This is a great book too I'm lucky enough to have several of Alan Lee's works hanging on my walls and every time I pass them they give me joy
