This week, we chat about the new monster art book Dungeons & Drawings, by Blanca Martinez de Rituerto and Joe Sparrow, which collects a little bit of folk lore and pop culture, a little bit of tabletop RPG context and a whole lot of beautiful original art. We also touch on the tradition of monster books beyond RPGs, particularly in the 70s and 80s. Daniel Cohen forever!

Stu mentions two books used by Mike Mignola as inspiration for the stories in the Hellboy comic universe. They are The New Larousse Encyclopedia of Mythology, by Felix Guirand, and The Encyclopedia of Witchcraft and Demonology, by Rossell Hope Robbins.
