Mount your trusty steed and prepare for a thrilling journey. Knightworld is a lavish album of discovery in which the battles, legends and heroic deeds of these gallant horsemen are brought to sword-swinging life. Intricate illustrations of weapons from the armoury are paired with full-bleed awe-inspiring CGI scenes - your chance to rediscover all the details of life in a medieval castle. From sieges and strongholds to dungeons and drawbridges, there is much to explore for those of a brave heart. A book to rouse the courage and stir the imagination of all would-be warriors.
Henry Templeton is a long-time castle curator with much knowledge of the medieval age. His inspiration in creating this book was the discovery of a mysterious skeleton concealed below the floor of the castle in his care. Examination has suggested it to be the remains of a once-great knight.
