This book is truly beautiful. The writing is both provocative and informative, and the paintings are stunningly REAL, being both alluring and entrancing. I really loved this book! It is THE faery art book to have, and I would recommend it to both adults and children.

HASH(0x90e27720) out of 5 stars Unearthly Beauty 23 Jan. 2006
By JR Corry - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had seen Gadd's artwork before on her website and in an anthology of fairy art, but I still wasn't prepared for the incredible, unearthly beauty of this amazing book. Here, Gadd presents an incredible collection of fairies light and dark, leprechauns, unicorns, mermaids, and even a few witches and vampires! Her color is simply stunning, from the fiery eyes to the gossamer wings and mermaid's tails. If you love fairies, fantasy, or Gadd herself, you absolutely MUST get this book. Gadd tells us in the introduction that she made a promise to herself as a child to paint fairies the way they truly are: bold, fiery, and full of otherworldly color. That promise has more than been fulfilled, and I for one am eternally thankful.

HASH(0x90e27774) out of 5 stars An Amazing Book! 19 Feb. 2006
By Toni Boozer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I found Maxine's work in the book to be intricately detailed and exciting! Each magical image awakens the viewer's sense of curiosity and imagination, returning her to a delightfully dreamy state of mind long forgotten under the responsibilities and restrictions of adulthood.

The book has tons of high-quality color photos, and is nicely bound with a padded cover and even gold-tipped pages!

Maxine Gadd is truly one of the most amazing fantasy artists of not only the 21st century, but of all time!

HASH(0x90e27bac) out of 5 stars Faeries and Other Fantastical Folk : The Faery Paintings of Maxine Gadd by Maxine Gadd 3 July 2006
By livisu - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Maxine Gadd's paintings are pure eye candy for those who like magical creatures. They are NOT run of the mill images! The book has gilded pages and a nice padded cover. I am extremely pleased with it and all whom I have shared it with have liked it also.

HASH(0x90e27f78) out of 5 stars Wonderful! 2 Aug. 2006
By Jennifer Defillippo - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is truly an amazing, delightful, fantastical book! I love Maxine Gadd's work; I couldn't wait to buy this book, and I have not been disappointed!

Even the few of the paintings that are obviously not as 'finished' or detailed as her usual work are truly magical, nonetheless.

This is one book that will find a seat of honor among my Fantasy/Faerie Tale collection!

I cannot find a thing wrong here; if you are looking to spend your money on any book of this type, look no further...this is IT!!!

HASH(0x90e27f24) out of 5 stars Not What I Expected 22 Jan. 2007
By Miss Mermaid - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I do love many of Maxine Gadd's paintings, however the majority of my favorites are not included in this book. The image, "Frost" is included but what a poor reproduction it is in here. You'd be better off ordering a print or the greeting card if you want to revel in this image. I own the greeting card, and it is BEAUTIFUL. They way she paints that platinum hair is breathtaking. I was so disappointed to find my favorite image so poorly reproduced in her book. The image "Frost" appears faded and doesn't justify its beauty at all. Also, "Emeron, Branwyn, Haegeth, Gingerbread House, Toadstool House" to name a few loved works are left out.

I found most of the images to be her more "weird" works. I regret to use this word, however for my taste and for others who adore my book list, I believe you will find this to be true.

Look on Fatara World dot com and order your favorites instead. I hope one day she publishes another book with more of my favorites.
