From Homer's poems to contemporary science fiction, literature through the ages has continuously invented imaginary and legendary lands, projecting there all those wishes, dreams, utopias and nightmares that are too intrusive and challenging for our limited daily reality. Umberto Eco leads us on an illustrated journey through these distant, unknown lands: introducing us to their inhabitants, their heroes and villains, the passions and preoccupations that shaped them, always mindful of the continued importance of myth and legend to modern life and conciousness. Placing ancient and medieval texts beside contemporary stories, films beside poems, comics beside novels, it is a journey that is both erudite and enjoyable, and one that only Eco could have created.

Review:
'The illustrations are fabulous evocations of places their makers could see only in their mind's-eyes ... Eco's book is a reminder that writers and readers once travelled widely and magnificently, without ever leaving their homes or their heads' Ben Macintyre, The Times. (The Times)
Book Description:
Umberto Eco explores the most distant realms of our imagination
