Product Description

Immerse yourself in the complex and mysterious world of Greek mythology! Part of the 'ology series of interactive, multi-dimensional books, "Mythology" is will drop the reader into the intriguing early nineteenth notes of explorer and "antiquity collector" John Oro. The guidebook of Byron-devotee Lady Hestia Evans, each page is filled with vintage-looking Romantic illustrations and a detailed history of the Greek Gods. The sidebars are filled with letters and diary entries from John Oro, chronicling his descent from the good-hearted collector who planned to turn his finds over to a new Greek museum-into a man who begins to believe in the Greek gods, and becomes greedier and greedier with every find, until the final pages of the book begin to turn suspiciously golden.

Interactive features include a card game featuring the twelve Olympians, an oak-leaf oracle of Zeus, a pop-up Pandora's box, a booklet retelling the tale of Odysseus, a piece of the Golden Fleece, a gold OBOLOS coin to pay the ferryman on the River Styx, and many more flaps, foldouts, and other surprises. 28 pages, bejeweled hardcover.

Publisher's Description

Presenting the newest discovery in the series with the Midas touch — a mythical exploration fit for the gods

In the early nineteenth century, an English nobleman embarked on a tour of the sites of ancient Greece. He brought as his guide a primer on Greek myths written by his friend Lady Hestia Evans, a devotee of Lord Byron who had recently taken the same voyage. In the true Romantic spirit, Lady Hestia’s book was not only lavishly illustrated but also boasted many paper crafts and novelties, including a card game featuring the twelve Olympians, an oak-leaf oracle of Zeus, a pop-up Pandora’s box (with hope still inside), a booklet retelling the tale of Odysseus, a piece of the Golden Fleece, a gold OBOLOS coin to pay the ferryman on the River Styx, and many more flaps, foldouts, and other surprises. The nobleman added his own witty comments and drawings along the way, but seems to have wished for something odd at the Delphic oracle: as the book nears its end, it slowly begins to turn . . .to gold. Now, for lovers of Greek myths and those just discovering their timeless power, this fascinating volume is faithfully reproduced with all its Romantic ambience, clever wit and novelty features intact.
