In a perfect pairing of talent, this volume blends twenty illustrations by Peter Sis with Jorge Luis Borges's 1957 compilation of 116 "strange creatures conceived through time and space by the human imagination," from dragons and centaurs to Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat and the Morlocks of H. G. Wells's "The Time Machine." A lavish feast of exotica brought vividly to life with art commissioned specifically for this volume, "The Book of Imaginary Beings" will delight readers of classic fantasy as well as Borges's many admirers.
