The Illustrated Story

Stephen Fry


Limited number of  signed copies available while stocks last.

Step into Stephen Fry’s richly colourful world of magic, mayhem, monsters and maniacal gods. No one loves and quarrels, desires and deceives as boldly or brilliantly as Greek gods and goddesses. In Stephen Fry’s vivid retelling, we gaze in wonder as wise Athena is born from the cracking open of the great head of Zeus and follow doomed Persephone into the dark and lonely realm of the Underworld.

We shiver in fear when Pandora opens her jar of evil torments and watch with joy as the legendary love affair between Eros and Psyche unfolds. Mythos: The Illustrated Story captures these extraordinary myths for our modern age in stunning colour – in all their dazzling and deeply human relevance.
