'Offers the most comprehensive historical look to date at the influence and significance of the griffin in culture.' - Emily Zarka, writer and host of the PBS show Monstrum

'Reading like an adventure story and bursting with gorgeous reproductions of some of the world's greatest art, this book ranges from the spurious idea of the beast's origins in dinosaur bones to a consideration of its surprising appearance in video games.' - Elizabeth Morrison, The J. Paul Getty Museum

Griffinology is a fascinating exploration of the mythical creature’s many depictions in human culture. Drawing on a wealth of historical and literary sources, this book shows how the griffin has captured the imagination of people for over 5,000 years, representing power, transcendence and even divinity. It explores the history and symbolism of griffins in art, from their appearances in ancient Egyptian magic wands to medieval bestiaries, and from medieval coats of arms to corporate logos today. The use of the griffin as a symbol of power and protection is surveyed throughout history and into modern times. Beautifully illustrated, this book will appeal to all those interested in monsters, magic and the mystical, as well as art and history.
