The last edition of my shopping blog featured a beautiful statue of The Last Unicorn from Think Geek. This edition will build on that by fawning over the 50th Anniversary book to be released on November 12, 2018. How cool is that, 50 years? It is truly amazing how some things endure and just stick with us. I don’t think anyone could predict that The Last Unicorn would still be in conversations all this time later. Some stories just need to remain in our life.
I am thinking this book is probably a must-have for any fan of The Last Unicorn. The book is being released as a hardcover and I can already hear the sound of the spine cracking as I open the book for the first time. Count me in.
The Last Unicorn The Lost Journey
Peter S. Beagle first imagined his beloved heroine when he was twenty-three, half a decade before she sprang into the world. Now the Last Unicorn’s fantastical origins are recaptured in this lovely commemorative hardcover. Here you will discover the eighty-five page genesis of Beagle’s masterpiece, his own wry musings upon his early career, charming original illustrations, and tributes from modern fantasy legends Patrick Rothfuss and Carrie Vaughn.
In this wonderfully strange adventure, a brave unicorn leaves her solitary life behind, determined to discover if she is the last of her kind. She is forewarned by a forlorn dragon and befuddled by a chatty butterfly; her unfamiliar traveling companion will be an exiled demon with a split personality and a penchant for philosophy.
Somewhere between mythology, modernity, and magic, the Last Unicorn has found herself on the road less traveled by . . . until now.
