At the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century the Art Nouveau movement introduced a vital spirit of artistic and cultural renewal to virtually every aspect of artistic production: from paintings and graphics to advertising posters, finding its most remarkable expression in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Many of the interpreters of Art Nouveau – including Van de Velde, Tiffany, Klimt, Horta, Beardsley, Guimard and Mackintosh – were inspired by the sinuous, elegant, and dynamic shapes and lines of flowers, plants, and the female form, introducing these natural forms into their art.

Discover the fascinating myths of Anansi, the West African trickster god who takes the form of a spider; the story of the Wawilak Sisters of Arnhem Land in northern Australia, who form the land as they walk across it; or the Slavic tale of Ivan as he chases the mischievous Firebird. Read about ferocious, man-eating monsters such as the Minotaur and Fafnir the dragon, and the legendary heroes that fought them, like Theseus and Sigurd. Also included are the legends of Robin Hood, and of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, epics from Asia, such as the Mahabharata and Gilgamesh, and a host of tales from Aztec mythology and a range of other cultures. As well as offering the retellings themselves, Myths, Legends, and Sacred Stories: a children's encyclopedia investigates the meanings of these primal stories, examining why these tales have stood the test of time over thousands of years.
