Good Wives and Warriors c/o 2AGENTEN have published a wonderful book on the topic of folklore from all over the world at LAURENCE KING, which we are delighted to present you here on GoSee.
“From the West African fable of Anansi the Spider, to Michabo, the magical hare who rebuilt the world, and Tanuki, the sweet but troublesome racoon-dog of Japanese folklore, Mythopedia is an encyclopedia of mythical creatures that covers legends, tales and myths from around the world. Lovingly created by the illustration duo behind popular flipbook Myth Match, Good Wives and Warriors, this book contains pages upon pages of cultural folklore from around the world. Let these weird and wonderful creatures spark your child’s imagination for their own storytelling and drawing while teaching them about international cultures.
Becky Bolton and Louise Chappell have been working collaboratively as Good Wives and Warriors since 2007, soon after graduating from the Painting department at The Glasgow School of Art. They divide their time between designing large-scale installations and undertaking design commissions for companies in the UK and abroad.”
