It simply isn't an adventure worth telling if there aren't any dragons. ~J.R.R. Tolkien

Constellation Draco from Ptolemy's Almagest 1690

Dragons are found in nearly every culture. These are post-medieval to Victorian dragons from Victorian anatomical texts, folklore, and Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau designs. Here are dragons from William Morris textile designs, a William De Morgan dragon design in his 'Persian' palette, as well as dragons taken from Golden Age illustrations.
