Goodreads Synopsis: 
Gorgeous full-color paintings, accompanied by a unique story of world-wide exploration and dragon encounters! On the trail of dragons forgotten, an intrepid illustrator and reporter journeys from Europe through the Middle East and finally to Saigon in search of the dark caverns and mountaintop perches where the elusive winged serpents dwell. With the gift of seeing the invisible, our explorer friend records each encounter in a journal of gorgeous, fully painted artwork, capturing every majestic and fearsome visual detail of the scaly behemoths, and accompanies his findings with snippets of local lore as evidence that these hidden beasts continue to shape the world in ways we may never expect!
This book was absolutely beautiful, I loved everything about it. Full of sketches, paintings, and fantasy, this graphic novel took my breath away. The story is told as if it is a private, personal journal interspersed with all of this wonderful art. 

I LOVED this graphic novel, I don't think I can say it enough. The writer goes on a trip through Europe on a quest to find the various dragons that may still be alive and he finds a bunch of them, chronicling details about them and sketching images from his journey. 

The amount of detail in the art of this graphic was overwhelming. The artist captured the fantastical, whimsy of the world of dragons wonderfully and my only hope is to find these poster sized, they are beautiful.
