Castles, A. Lee w/ D. Day and D. Larkin
Bantam, New York, 1984
191pp, full color illustrations throughout
Fantasy artist Alan Lee and poet David Day combine their talents to takes the reader on a magical trek through castles of lore and literature. Three broad categories are explored: castles of myth, the Age of Romance (king Arthur;’s realm) and castles of fantasy literature. The soaring structures (and crumbling ruins) are beautifully hand-illustrated, alongside the otherworldy denizens who strode the ramparts.
