For centuries, people have been fascinated and enchanted by tales of mermaids. These watery temptresses can be found in folklore and mythology from every tradition in the world. From the Irish merrows who come on land to search for human husbands, to the fake Fiji Mermaid made popular by P.T Barnum, these sea maidens (and sometimes men) have always been shrouded in mystery. "Mermaids" delves into the numerous myths surrounding these enigmatic beings, explores the common symbols associated with them, and presents tales of merfolk from around the world.
