Arthur and the Grail
by Hubert Lampo & Pieter Paul Koster
Hubert Lampo, one of the most distinguished authors in Europe, has written a marvellously readable and compelling book on the eternally fascinating subject of King Arthur. He draws on the wide range of Arthurian literature and scholarship through the ages to come up with his own common-sense interpretations of the legends which have gained such a hold on our imaginations.
The enchanted landscapes of Arthur's kingdom are brought to life in over 160 beautifully atmospheric full-colour photographs by , and the whole book is sprinkled with illustrative quotations from Arthurian texts.
Already a massive success in Holland, Belgium, France and West Germany, Arthur and the Grail has won the Open Book Award for the most attractive and significant book of the year.
