This is a fantastic book for cross-stitch addicts! The book is full of charts for everything from wizards and unicorns to oriental dragons and zodiac motifs.
The charts are divided into 6 main categories: Myth & Magic, Winter Enchantment, Oriental Fantasy, Angelic Messengers, The Mystic Deep and Celestial Heaven. Within these categories there are charts for complex, intricate, time-consuming masterpieces, as well as for smaller motifs. While the complex charts are more suited to an experienced stitcher, many of the motifs are very easily done by the beginner stitcher.
The directions for working the charts are clear and concise. The charts themselves are in color, which some stitchers may not like. However, the designs themselves make-up for whatever lack this may cause. They also give the name of the designers of the charts, which is an added bonus in case you find yourself wishing to do more charts by that designer.
This is one book that I will buy and treasure for a long time to come!

One of the best books... Sept. 19 2006
By Zephyr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To be honest, I had my doubts about buying a book of patterns without any examples whatsoever. However, I do not regret it, because this is one of the most beautiful and fantastic books on cross stitch I have ever owned. Each pattern consists of 3 or more colors and are clearly charted in color. There are different themes on each chapter (fantasy, oriental, magic etc.). Some of them are quite hard to do, but there are plenty of smaller projects which I am thankful for. I do have to add that a lot of the patterns use quarter stitching, which can get on my nerves after a while. Either way, I think it is a high quality five star book.

Great images July 28 2009
By Lord Dreamweaver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is yet another book for my wife's cross stitch library.

My youngest son wanted a dragon on his afgan that she was making for him. I got her this book to add more images to her library, and some new designs.

There are several different types of catagories in this book, but only a couple of images per catagory. The ones listed are beautifil, and the instructions and patterns are easy to use.

My wife, though, is one that likes to create her own designs. She is taking the idea from this book, and creating a new dragon pattern.

Still, it is a useful book for the cross stitch library.

A lovely collection Jan. 26 2007
By H. B. Faith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What I appreciate most about the patterns in this book is the variety. Although there is a preponderance of the concepts prevalent in the West, there's also a nice section of Asian images (Indian, Chinese), as well as a few that could be termed "pagan" (the Frost Fairy design, a striking pattern in whitish threads on a blue background). It would have been nice to have a few other mythologies represented, though, to round things out - maybe Native American, Pacific Islander, Inuit, etc. The charts are all in color, another plus.

I like books with dragons and Unicorns in it. You also get knights and princesses, Frogs, owls, castles, fairies, and so much more.
