This book is an explination into the wonderful world of faries,
I have purchased many books on faries and some by Brian Froud , but this one it the best yet. It introduces you to the fairy world in a way that captures you forever. The book is bursting with the most amazing art, from sketches to paintings, all vervibrant and alive with emotion and passion.
My children also got so much enjoyment from it, It as with other Brian Froud works looks at both sides of the fairy world, not just the good but the naughty, medling elves and pixies.
I highly recomend this book for all ages and not just fairy enthusiasts, I know this could be enjoyed by all.
I fell in love with the faeries as a result of Froud's wonderful illustrations.
I've bought (and enjoyed) everything he's done since, but (sorry, Brian!) I still think this is far and away the best.
I, too am in the process of choosing one of these exquisite depictions of the Faerie Folk to tattoo on myself, as an homage to the works of Mr. Froud and Mr. Lee.
Thank-you both for taking my hand and showing me the way. I als! ! o have a copy of "Strange Stains and Mysterious Smells" and "The Dark Crystal" my favorite film. I look so forward to collecting more of your wonderous works!
If you do not already have a copy -- hardcover, of course -- get one ( or six ). Everyone who has the priveledge of viewing mine wants one of their own!
Haven't read all the words but what i have read really suits the magical fairy world subject.
The illustrations are beautiful just as one would imagine a fairy world - and i'm not a fairy fanatic.
