Explore the mysterious and magical world of the unicorn in Michael Green's book, The Unicornis Manuscripts. This newly updated book explores the fluid boundary between what is real and what is imaginary. Long considered one of the preeminent books on these mythical creatures, Unicornis explains and expands the lore of the unicorn. An updated introduction addresses our collective fascination with unicorns, and the profound impact that the original book had on unicorn lovers around the world. Alongside a narrative history of the unicorn are Michael Green's exquisite illustrations, rendered as if freshly torn from a medieval manuscript. Each image hearkens us back to an enchanted age, when the mysteries of the world still held us captivated. Through the pages of the book we are transported to the spaces where unicorns abound, just out of our natural sight. For seekers of the beautiful and wondrous, The Unicornis Manuscripts inspires you to believe.

About the Author:

Born in New York, Michael Green received his BA from New York University. He attended film school there before departing to study at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. He was a contentious objector during the Vietnam War. He joined the legendary Castalia Foundation, worked on germinal light shows with Timothy Leary and in 1967 moved with the group to an area of protected land to experience communal living. In Pennsylvania, he studied with Sufi master Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. He put together an eclectic career as a wandering monk, and finally as an illustrator, artist and writer. He has over 2,500,000 copies of his illustrated books currently in print including, 'A Hobbit's Journal,' 'Zen and the art of the Macintosh,' 'The History of the Dragonstooth,' 'The Illuminated Rumi' and 'One Song: A New Illuminated Rumi.' He currently lives in Pennsylvania's Brandywine Valley with his wife, Sally, where he is slowly turning an old barn into a multi-level exhibit space.
