Unicornis

£19.99

Product description

Published by Amber Lotus Publishing 2008 Soft cover in good condition

Explore the mysterious and magical world of the unicorn and those that believe in them in Michael Green's book, THE UNICORNIS MANUSCRIPTS. This newly updated book explores the fluid boundary between what is real and what is imaginary. Long considered one of the pre-eminent books on these mythical creatures, THE UNICORNIS MANUSCRIPTS explains and expands the lore of the unicorn. The book begins with a legend of discovery. Michael Green has a mysterious encounter with a monk from a secret group known as the Collegium Gnosticum, keepers of a manuscript containing the true history and lore of unicorns. From mediaeval times, the brotherhood has held this lore intact for the good of the world, including the remains to last true unicorn horn. The brotherhood has decided to make this history known in the hope that it will benefit the human race and they have chosen Michael to help them deliver their salvific message. Alongside the narrative history of the unicorn are Michael Green's haunting illustrations, rendered as though they were freshly torn from a mediaeval manuscript. Each image harkens back to a gentler age, when the mysteries of the world still held us captivated. Through the pages of the book we are transported to the dwells and spaces where unicorns abound, just out of our natural sight. We glimpse the Forest Brocileande, a magical land where only true believers may travel. Updated with a new introduction by Michael Green, this expanded version of THE UNICORNIS MANUSCRIPTS addresses our collective fascination with unicorns.
