Product Description

The latest title in the much-loved Element Encyclopedia series, The Element Encyclopedia of Fairies explores the history, legends, and mythology of these little peoples.

In the latest instalment of the best-selling Element Encyclopedia series, fairy expert Lucy Cooper examines the long history of fairies in our world, both ancient and modern. From the Fates of ancient Greece and the Sidhe of the Celts to the Cottingley Fairies of Yorkshire and the Djinn of Arabia. Loaded with hundreds upon hundreds of fascinating entries, this is the most comprehensive and definitive book on fairies available today.

In addition to the essential A to Z reference guide, The Element Encyclopedia of Fairies also features a series of essays which will illuminate for readers:

• How to see a fairy
• Fairies in literature and legend
• The difference between a “fairy” and a “faerie”
• Fairies from around the world
• What and where is Fairyland?

Whether you’re a seasoned fairy spotter or a new visitor to Fairyland, The Element Encyclopedia of Fairies is an essential addition to your fantastical bookshelf.
