A "coffee table" exploration of dragons, this one's strong suit is the many images of dragons and kin, drawn from multiple time periods and cultures. The text itself is decent, though the writers sometimes get too clever with the commentary, making it a little difficult to pick out where researched legends and "facts" leave off and author commentary begins. If you're a dragon lover, and find it at a decent price (I got mine half-off), it's worth a spot in the collection.
