Greece! Rome! Monsters! book

Getty Publications, Los Angeles, California, 2002

Description

The goal of Greece! Rome! Monsters! is to introduce children—and grownups—to great mythological stories in an innovative, engaging way. The lively text and colorful illustrations give the book a fun, contemporary feeling. Each monster had to fit on a single spread, so the images vary depending on the length of each text passage. The typography responds actively to the informal tone of the book, but not in a distracting way. Handlettered titles add texture to the pages. A special illustration that includes all 20 monsters in a dense, rollicking scene was created for the endpapers.
