A symbol of grace and purity, the unicorn has long been my favourite mythical creature. Ever since I was young, I’d loved reading about this magnificent beast. I had marvelled at its beauty, and revered its strength. As I grew older, I started to do a lot of research on the unicorn. Did you know that the unicorn is one of the few mythical creatures not associated with fear and violence?
I’d not only been collecting all kinds of unicorn figurines, images and graphics, but my fascination had spilled into the gaming world. If a game featured the unicorn, I had to own one.
Its place in culture and history is unrivalled, and it is no wonder that the unicorn has remained as one of the most revered mythical creatures of all time.
Note: The images seen here were not drawn by me (sadly, I was born without a creative bone in my body). I had saved these years ago from one of the email forwards circulating the web, and they weren’t credited to the artists. If you know where these were from, please drop me a note. Thanks!

Book lovers will absolutely adore this amazing piece of artwork. How incredibly creative! This is pure genius.
Saphira (Eragon), The Stinky Cheeseman, Harry Potter, Matthius (Redwall), Winnie the Pooh, The Last Unicorn & Butterfly, Dorothy & Toto (The Wizard of Oz), Alice & White Rabbit (Alice in Wonderland), Willy Wonka & Oompa Loompa (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), The Three Terrible Trins, The One Ring (LOTR), Charlotte (Charlotte’s Web), Dragonriders of Pern
The amount of detail is mind-blowing… those are REAL covers! I spent a long time scrutinising it and had fun recognising all the books. It brought back a lot of memories.
I love the message the artist was trying to convey. There is nothing more I’d rather do in the world than to lose myself in a good book, and step into the author’s world where the characters spring to life. I can spend hours with my nose in the book, and forget about everything else.
p/s: Did you spot the Harry Potter books on the first bookcase, 2nd shelf from the bottom?
