This stunning collection of myths is for adults, and brings together 52 goddess myths from across the globe: familiar, unknown, forgotten - spectacular! Pioneering storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton revitalises powerful goddesses, creating new perspectives and contemporary literature from fragments of myth. It features 52 papercuts by artist Sophie Herxheimer, juxtaposing the ordinary and fabulous. The Mighty Goddess reimagines ancient myths in poetic language, putting the goddess in the centre of the narrative, exploring the diverse ways in which goddesses are represented. Words and images delight and subvert, revelling in the female, exploring creativity, desire, destruction and death. This contemporary collection brings goddesses to life in all their glory.

Journey from Alaska to Mesopotamia, and ancient Rome to Tibet, and follow the goddess from creator to crone in a collection where myth and art combine.
