I finished this book last week, and everything about it is gorgeous! Alexander went over the themes of mermaids, symbolisms, change over time, and the types of mermaids from different cultures. At times the information could be a little redundant, but overall a fun read! I hope to read some of the other books from this mythology series.

A fantastic historical reference book to mermaids. A nice quick guide that covers the world. Also a truly gorgeous book inside as well!

@AmyG I'm giving this item a separate post because this is absolutely special! 😍 it is a wooden frame box with this painted on the front. It came separate from my swapbox and it is absolutely amazing. OMG I love it so so very much. I have it sitting on the shelf above my reading chair so that I can look at it always. Thank you so much ❤️💕🤗💕❤️

"The best way for sailors to be sure of a safe voyage was for them to bribe the mermaids with books. The most strategic mariners would offer a selection of the first books in a number of series as insurance for the return journey." -Unknown

I knew it all along. Littens are mermaids. ❤

Isn't this the most beautiful mermaid illustration?

KarenUK I love that she's reading and drinking tea! She must be a Litten! 💕 5y
Laura317 With that sort of wind, I'm amazed she can keep the pages from flapping wildly. Also, I wonder what she is reading? Little Mermaid? The Old Man and the Sea? Or maybe P&P? 5y
DivineDiana @KarenUK She must be! 😉📚 5y

RinaBrahmbhattBarot @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I'll certainly ask the illustrator - I just copied from her timeline as it was just too pretty :) 5y

RinaBrahmbhattBarot @DivineDiana enjoy xoxo! I remember reading with my little one! Absolutely loved it :) 5y
DivineDiana My Book arrived and sorry to say my copy did not have the beautiful color illustrations 😕 The print and illustrations are all blue in white. But interesting mermaid lore! 5y

Donna_sBookMinute Oh my! There's a lot here. The beautiful and unique bookends caught my eye at first. Next, I love shelves deep enough for double rows of books. And, of course, I'm gonna look up some of the titles. 6y

Another book I started & haven't picked up in a few months. It's a really cute coffee table book but not a novel kind of read.

LittleBowBook But it looks so pretty!!! 6y
crc @LittleBowBook It's adorable! The pictures on the inside are really cool too! 6y
LittleBowBook I might get it just because it's pretty and the pictures! Grey coffee table book. But I can tell by the description that I wouldn't particularly enjoy reading it either. Haha. 6y
