Le Morte D'Arthur: Complete, Unabridged, Illustrated Edition

Le Morte D'Arthur: Complete, Unabridged, Illustrated Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A complete, unabridged edition of one of the most famous chronicles of the Arthurian legends comes with new illustrations. Edited by a lifelong scholar of the legends, the book includes some widely accepted corrections."--Publishers Weekly

The epic story of King Arthur never fails to stir the imaginations of readers everywhere, and this outstanding illustrated version showcases original artwork that creates a unique vision of Camelot. Some of these breathtaking watercolors and pen-and-inks have hung in museums, including the depiction of Tintagel Castle, the Sword in the Stone, Merlin and Nimue, and Guenevere rescued from the stake. With remarkable accuracy, Anna-Marie Ferguson captures every nuance of the historical period, from the knights' shining armor to the intricate architecture to the English forests. Yet she also revels in the fantasy, with mysterious and magical landscapes, misty and moonlit. These legends have always been a treat for the mind--and now they are a feast for the eyes, too.

About the Artist

Anna-Marie Ferguson studied graphic art at Southampton College in the UK, and her work has appeared in various galleries and books--particularly volumes of fairy tales. Anna-Marie served as the "Arthurian expert" on the recent NBC mini-series, Merlin.

Synopsis:

"Le Morte d'Arthur" is the original source for the modern Arthur legend, and this edition has been totally re-edited to correct the somewhat confusing original editorial changes of 1485. Matthews also provides an essay on the probable and possible identities of Malory himself.
