5.0 out of 5 stars The illustrated encyclopaedia of fairies, 23 Mar. 2003
This review is from: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Fairies (Hardcover)
If you wish to learn of fairies this book is full to the brim with every thing you nedd to know.
Six years in the making, her obvious knowledge in this field is indeed expansive.
This not a book on the hairy fairy victorian image given in the many books that abound nowdays, but full of real folk loure, covering the many types of fairie known to humankind over the period of there exsistance.
Not all fairies are the sweet lovely little beings most people think of now days. People through the ages have come into contact with those of another relm, some good and some not so good in there encounters.
These tails, loure, and information are a marvellous way of gaining a truly wonderfull insight into the way these folk are said to exsist and behave.
Not just a wonderfull read but as the title says, an encyclopeadia that is easily useable in this format.
Full marks must go to the illustrators Paul Mason and Hellen Feild, when we speake of fairie,discriptions come in many forms and opinions.
This they have captured in the books wonderfull illustrations and artwork to an inspired degree.
Here we have a mix of traditionaly creative drawings and up to date imaging, this in its self helping to bring a subject of the past, bang up to date.
Fairies never left us or stayed in the past, it us who have tended to forget there exsistance.
If you wish an introduction to those of another place, this book will lead you on to a path followed by manny.
