Fantasy: An Artist's Realm - Ben Boos




Released October 2010


Reviewed by Bob Walch


Young readers are invited to immerse themselves in the world of New Perigord created by illustrator Ben Boos. This lavish volume is filled with detailed sketches of fantastical creatures from hobgoblins, minotaurs and dwarves to the inhabitants of the realm of the dead (vampires, zombies, etc.)

Maps, numerous weapons, armor, and structures are also pictured here to give the reader a full picture of New Perigord. Boos’ descriptive text adds to the book’s enchantment and describes the features of each venue – windy forests where elves and healers dwell, coastal fortresses inhabited by Paladinsl, the magnificent libraries of the Mages and the dark, boding territory of the dead.

From start to finish, this is a picture book that will fire the imagination of any person, young or old, who is interested by the world of fantasy. With Ben Boos as your guide, you’ll discover new, grand worlds to explore and, perhaps, be inspired to try creating your own make-believe lands.
