A portrait of Fantasy and the Otherwordly (Panorama illustré de la fantasy & du merveilleux)

Melchior Ascaride

Dirigé par André-François Ruaud

Harry Potter is ubiquitous, and so are The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones! And let’s not forget Peter Pan or dear Alice…

These times are times of magic, fairies and spellacasting; open the doors to the vast fantasy worlds.

In about a hundred essays, ranging from Charles Perrault to G.R.R. Martin, without forgetting The Arabian Nights, William Shakespeare, Hans Christian Andersen, J.R.R. Tolkien, Lewis Carroll, Arthur Rackham, J. M. Barrie, Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, Mervyn Peake, Michael Moorcock, Robert Holdstock, Terry Pratchett, David Eddings, Neil Gaiman, J. K. Rowling, Hayao Miyazaki and Robin Hobb, and with more than 500 pictures, this Portrait will have you dive deep into the legends, epic tales and the wondrous stories.

"A terrific French-language encyclopedia of fantasy." (Terri Windling)
